New Music: Wakaan Releases “MEANWHILE” Label Compilation

0

Just yesterday, my personal favorite group of producers released a 17-song compilation of new and unreleased bass music. United under Liquid Stranger’s new independent label, Wakaan, Freddy Todd, NOTE, Conrank, Yheti, Toadface, Spankalicious, Space Jesus, Bleep Bloop, Shlump, PROKO, Sayer, Esseks, Pipus, Jade Cicada, Zebbler Encanti Experience, Halfred, Of the Trees, Djank Yucca, Mr. Bill, Fruitbat, and Supersillyus each contributed music to this grand reveal.

This group release is not the first power-move Liquid Stranger and his band of self-ascribed “free-form electronic music” producers executed this year to promote the young label. Just a couple weeks ago at the inaugural Up North Music & Arts Festival in Copemish, Michigan, Liquid Stranger hosted a “Wakaan Takeover” stage to feature his crew of like-minded, up-and-coming bass producers. Check out this recap video below.

After listening to this compilation I’m looking forward to catching a majority of these producers perform sets next weekend at the Great North Music & Arts Festival in Minot, ME (Freddy Todd, Yheti, Space Jesus, Esseks, Of the Trees, Jade Cicada, Bleep Bloop, and Supersillyus are each slated to perform). So in preparation for next weekend’s festivities, I fully intend to listen to these tracks on repeat throughout the upcoming week. Follow Wakaan on Facebook right here.
