Russ Liquid, the New Orleans based producer, is sure to be one of the next artists to break through within the jam influence, extra heady festival scene of artists. He has been turning out music through Gramatik's Lowtemp label, amongst others, and has been on the road playing live with Gramatik. Well, today he has uploaded a surprising 17 track album on Soundclo8ud which dropped a few years ago on Bandcamp, Foreign Frequency, that he is passing out as a completely free download. The album fuses together jazz and bass elements like never before. Stand out tracks include "Revenge Of The Fingerblaster," "Proud Light" and "Alpha Bravo Echo Zulu" yet the entire thing is worth an in-depth listen. The album has been made available as a free download through live electronic band STS9's record label 1320 Records. Listen below, grab a copy and enjoy!

Ratatat broke their 5 year silence by releasing the first new song with “Cream On Chrome” on the day of their first live performance of the year at Coachella. We’ve since gotten confirmation of a new studio album Magnifique, which we’ve heard songs "Abrasive" and "Nightclub Amnesia." Well now we don’t have to wait any longer and are treated to the entire 14 track project early thanks to a NPR Music pre-release.
We hear them expand on their unique organic live instrument meets electronic style that they do so well. The project is quality from start to finish upon our first listen and is something we see getting tons of rotation over the next few months.
Listen below to the entire album’s steam and pre-order your copy via XL Recordings ahead of the July 17th release. Enjoy!
