Music producer CruSz has shared his new EP Liquidz today. Featured on this latest 6-track EP via Enchanté Records is the charming title track which exudes sophistication but is not shy of rhythm and groove either.
Paris-born, the producer celebrates the country’s musical background with this latest EP which we have no doubts will make your playlists lighter with its intoxicating energy. With an evocative retro feel, listening to this EP one can feel like time is going backward and we are drawn into the nostalgic aspects of this latest offering. The producer has been making their mark since the late ‘90s, an influential era in electronic music, specifically the genre French Touch which shines bright in this new release.

CruSz elaborates on his production style for Liquidz: “I had just released a somewhat dirty, somewhat 8-bit banger called “Okay Boomerz” on when I wanted to return to a sampler and more house composition. While looking in my vinyl bins, I got my hands on several founding records of my musical culture which would also be likely to inspire me. To compose, I like to start with samples and sound banks. I come from the culture of sampling, and I don’t deny my origins by pretending to play the keyboard. In my sofa, I find a loop of strings that are hot on the net. No need to ask me: I never give my sources. I program a simple and warm rhythm in 4/4, small open hi-hat. I avoid the cliché of the big track house à la TR909 so as not to overdo it. The first bass is a simple and sub accompaniment.. but I will recompose it for my heady worms thanks to the Arturia synth suite. The small voice sticks perfectly and the mix is placed naturally to give bite and glue.”
