Liquid Bloom was created by Amani Friend (of Desert Dwellers) in 2001 as a soundtrack for healing and the exploration of inner states. Blending the sounds of nature, world instrumentation, rhythmic chanting, and medicine songs, the music forged under the banner of Liquid Bloom was deeply ambient from the beginning and inspired by musical concepts rooted in the earth, meditation, and the power of sound to elucidate the trance-like states revered by so many of the world’s ancient lineages. Evolving over the years from its initial ambient roots, the Liquid Bloom discography as it exists today hits on many diverse styles of electronic and dance music, and the project occupies a unique facet of the electro-acoustic landscape in its intention and adaptability. Whether experienced on the dance floor, or paired with meditation, yoga, bodywork, or ceremony, Liquid Bloom grants the listener a spacious soundtrack in our quest for inspiration and creative insight.

Lily Fangz is about fully engaging in the creative explorations of life, biting down, activating those around with passion, perspective, and perhaps asking the questions that aren’t posed enough. Wordplay started way back- writing since she could hold a pencil, that process evolved into stories, sketches, poetry, rhymes. Her memory is capacious and flow sick like contagious- so she began to share her words and release them free from their pages. Gravitated towards performance poetry, a lot of slams, jams, and cyphers. Realizing making music and art is the only thing that can quench her thirst LFangz is here to chomp down and invites all to join the feast of engaging with this human experience!
