Liquid StrangerWhen Martin Stääf revealed he was starting his own label, Wakaan, we said to ourselves, "Righteous, even more Liquid Stranger material!" But the even better news is, the Swedish-born, Scottsdale-based producer and performer of all things subsonic is using his considerable industry clout and veteran status to showcase the sounds and styles of up-and-comers in the game, and the bestest news of all: he's got damn good taste.

Today, Liquid Stranger unleashes his Sounds of Wakaan Vol 1 mix, which illustrates the type of sonic architecture Stääf is aiming for with his label. While these tracks won't show up on Wakaan, and perhaps not all of these artists, he's not not saying that they won't... That pleases us to no end, because there's no shortage of incredible acts (and UNTZ faves) on this mix like Mr. Bill, Desert Dwellers, and plenty of Space Jesus. Newcomers like Esseks and Perkulat0r get lots of love, and there's even a fun joint from Big Chocolate.

What's the sound Liquid Stranger is aiming for with Wakaan? Cutting-edge dubstep, twisted dancehall, grimy glitch-hop, and several metric tons of trippy trap and weird bass. If this mix doesn't get you excited for the future of the label, then you're a stranger to us.
