Dose of Bass

Canfield’s Liquid Geometry collective cultivates the SD beat scene.

For the past year and a half, electronic music collective Liquid Geometry has been cultivating San Diego’s beat scene with a monthly showcase at the Kava Lounge, curating local and out-of-town genre luminaries, including Free the Robots, Freddy Todd, Eprom, Teebs, Take, Lorn, Dr. Strangeloop, and Samiyam.

In April, Liquid Geometry celebrated its first label release with Mastah Syphe’s Bullrider EP, featuring four original tracks and remixes by Bleep Bloop, Sleeve, Subp Yao, and Elusive.

“Starting a label was at the top of the list of things to do the fateful summer night in 2010 when James Huntington [aka HM.T DM.T (R.I.P.)] and I first decided to set Liquid Geometry into effect,” says Steve “Sleeve” Canfield. “We had each released an EP of our own and had claimed Liquid Geometry as our affiliation. Rather than moving forward with signing other artists to the label, James and I focused more on making new music and sharing it with the world. Liquid Geometry is now focusing our energies into the label.”

If YouTube traffic on the promo video (directed by Derrick Acosta of Mega64.com) is a reliable indicator, Bullrider looks to be a welcomed development, logging over 1500 views within the first 24 hours of being posted.

Saif “Mastah Syphe” Bari was recently featured alongside Sleeve on an international compilation (which Bari mastered) that was released by Portland-based label STYLSS. His track “Cheese Cake” was also featured on music blog Live for the Funk’s “Weekly Dose of Bass.”

“We have a solid foundation with Mastah Syphe’s Bullrider EP delivered, and many more releases on the way,” Canfield says. “Here, in the beginning of our journey, we will be dropping a new album every month from different artists around the world. Our next release will be the debut EP from the Dons of Derp, aka DOD, from Germany, which consists of Nino Seneris (Liquid Geometry) and Subp Yao (Saturate Records).”

All releases will be name-your-own-price. Any artists interested in having material released on Liquid Geometry are encouraged to send demos to [email protected] or [email protected].

The Dons of Derp EP release party is Thursday, May 24, at the Kava Lounge.
