Liquideep is made up of Ziyon (singer, songwriter and producer) and Ryzor (DJ and producer). The duo hooked up in 2007 over a mutual love of hook-laden, melodically rich, deep house music.
Just two years after their formation they caught the attention of the entire nation after their popular track, Fairytale was play-listed on every major radio station in South Africa. The track went on to receive a nomination for Song of the Year at the 2010 SAMAs (South African Music Awards).
Their distinctive beats have already attracted remixes from popular underground international DJs including Suges, Lars Behrenroth, Jonny Montana and House Device. In addition they’ve been commissioned to remix seminal acts like Stephanie Cooke.
Following their Oscillations mix contribution on House Afrika Sessions Vol. 1, they finalised their debut album, Fabrics of the Heart, which was released in May 2010.
