The Liquid Crystal Project infuse elements of true Hip Hop with fundamental Jazz to create their own signature style, “Jazz-Hop”. To quote the band:
“Jazz Hop is more than just a cliché music fusion. It’s drums that make your head nod like it did in the Golden Age of Hip Hop. It’s a saxophone that makes melodies that mimic your favorite emcee. It’s chords that put you in the mind frame of J-Dilla and John Coltrane at the same time. It’s fans that love the energy of real Hip Hop and the mellow feeling of Jazz.”
Members of the Liquid Crystal Project:
