The Liquideep duo is made up of a Ziyon [singer/songwriter/producer] and Ryzor [DJ/producer], the two met as friends first before their mutual love for hook-laden, melodically rich deep house music inspired the birth of Liquideep in 2007.
Just two years after their formation they caught the attention of the entire nation with the anthem ‘Fairytale’, which got play-listed on every major station in SA and received a SAMA 2010 nomination for Song of the Year.
The originality and appeal of the duo could be put down to the culture clash between the African beat and their awareness of what works on the globe’s dance floors, but it’s also down to their ability to craft sweet and memorable songs: the result of their combined 20 year’s worth of creative activity in club land.
They have already have already attracted remixes from big underground international names like Suges, Lars Behrenroth (Deeper Shades Of House), Jonny Montana (Camio Recordings) and House Device with a long list of up and coming , and they’ve been commissioned to remix seminal acts like Stephanie Cooke.
Following their ‘Oscillations’ mix contribution to House Afrika Sessions Vol. 1, their debut artist album, ‘Fabrics Of The Heart’, was released with much fan fare in May 2010 selling in excess of 5000 copies in the first 5 days on the shelf.
The duo’s popularity and area of influence continues to grow with several successful production and collaboration work already receiving rave reviews i.e. Hennessy Artistry, Theo Kgosinkwe, Kabelo Mabalane, Mandoza, Jae to name but a few.
The first house music act in South Africa to perform with a full live band, having performed at some flagship events such as The Durban July, Joburg Day, Fifa 2010 events, SAMA awards, Channel O Awards etc. With a list of other international shows scheduled.
