The Russ Liquid Test today release their anticipated World Gone Crazy seven-track EP following the trio’s teasing of the record through singles Rise, World Gone Crazy and Communication Breakdown.
World Gone Crazy is a versatile mix of funk and electronic; featuring live instrumentation with a modernized polished sound. The EP consists of live drums, guitar, brass and digital sound design resulting in a hybrid style typically unfrequented in dance music. A diverse record comprised of hip hop, drum and bass, funk and downtempo, The Russ Liquid Test prove their utmost versatility while remaining true to the sound they’ve long cultivated.
The record’s title track ‘World Gone Crazy’ features Chicago-based rapper ProbCause who is known for his work with Chance The Rapper, SABA Pivot, Action Bronson and more. A stand out single with undeniable energy, the collaboration is a fitting lead for the EP.
The Russ Liquid Test stand amongst the likes of Pretty Lights, Gramatik, The Floozies, and GRiZ himself as experimenters and pioneers within live electronic music. A three-piece band featuring the live performing of drums, brass, and keys, they’re a proven force to be reckoned with in the North American festival circuit – with performances at high profile fests like Electric Forest, Shambhala, Lightning in a Bottle + more.
World Gone Crazy is a landmark release for the New Orleans trio, highlighting their evolution over recent years both on stage and in-studio.
