Russ Liquid (Live) – Chrome Sparks (Live) – sAuce
-Russ Liquid is the future-vintage groove-blasting maestro who has stirred the souls and minds of the electronic music world. Renowned for his ingenious compositional approach, this cosmic virtuoso imprints a prophetic musical experience on his audiences. He detonates explosive beatscapes, seamlessly adding flourishes of instrumental color and emotion; all while drawing from an endlessly diverse sonic palette.
In only a short time, Mr. Liquid has developed a reputation for radiating a sonic supernova of genre-bending beats on the dancefloor, captivating audiences with passionate live instrumental performances across the U.S. and beyond. In 2012, the member of the Headtron crew’s dynamic, multi-instrumental, experience was unleashed on some of the most innovative events and festivals around the globe including: Coachella, Symbiosis Gathering, Lightning In A Bottle, Shambhala, Sonic Bloom, Envision Festival (Costa Rica), and Eclipse Festival (Australia).

Foreign Frequency transports listeners on an inter- dimensional adventure to the deepest circles of his musical universe, steering audiences into an expansive world of visceral beats, laced with spiraling instrumental accompaniments, and adorned with melodies that only a masterful improvisationalist could manifest.
If you were at STS9 last year then you were able to witness Russ Liquid supporting and performing with STS9 on their 2013 Winter Tour.
-Inspired by a background in classical percussion and an obsession with synthesizers, Jeremy Malvin creates music under the name Chrome Sparks. Jeremy grew up in Pittsburgh, then went to music school at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Two years later, he left school and went on extensive tours as the drummer for Stepdad, Miniature Tigers, and Rich Aucoin. Jeremy currently resides in Brooklyn, where he spends his time working on music in his bedroom, often leaving it to play DJ sets. Although Jeremy works on the recordings alone and has not done many live performances, the Chrome Sparks live realization has had many different incarnations, ranging from a one man show to an eight piece band. Currently, Jeremy does live performances with two dear friends.
