The king of experimental bass music, Liquid Stranger, is back with "Move It," a gritty mixture of classic dubstep with hip-hop. The track sticks to simple downtempo, Jamaican dub influenced drum beats with fairly simple, yet fluid bass performers on the drops. Though the bass parts are as in‐your‐face as you would expect from the seasoned veteran, there isn't too much flair thrown into it; just dirty bass and vocals over simple drums beats. That's the beauty of Martin Stääf; he doesn't need to overproduce a wall of sound and try too hard to make a quality track. His previous premiere on The Untz was a drippy remix of Desert Dwellers for The Great Mystery Remixes Part 1, which just goes to show he can tackle anything.
Just this past weekend, Liquid Stranger showed off his range by performing not one but two dramatically different sets at the sold out Infrasound Music Festival Equinox in Black River Falls, WI. A nighttime heavy throwdown was followed up by a smooth, downtempo and psychedelic sunrise set. Stääf's wide spectrum of sounds is now represented by his own Wakaan label, which is the home for this free download.
