Liquid Stranger’s “Hotbox” is equipped with a je ne sais quoi flow. MC Shells’ light-hearted rapping adds flavor to Liquid’s booming bass.

“Hotbox” was released as a free download on Martin Stääf’s (Liquid Stranger) label Wakaan as an early Christmas gift to fans preceding his late January release of the Weird & Wonderful EP. Liquid Stranger’s aspirations for his label Wakaan include creating “a forum for eclectic music and art,” vital to the “freeform” revolution.

The Swede is a luminary genre shapeshifter, consistently dominating Beatport’s #1 spot in dubstep, reggae and DnB. Never too big for his aficionados, you can spend New Year’s Eve with Stääf for a modest $25 at Lakehurst Banquets in Waukegan, Ill. a spectacle presented by Chicago hometown heroes Trinium Events.
