Biography

Chicago, United States (1993 – present)

There are at least 2 different artists named Liquid Soul: 1) an American acid jazz band and 2) a psytrance Swiss DJ

1)Nicola Capobianco, based in switzerland, started at early age getting addicted to the magic of electronic music. He began playing progressive trance from the end of 1993. In 2001, after many years as DJ and producing in the studio, where he has played and performed at big raves and festivals, next to people like Tiesto and Armin van Buuren, he decided to start a new project and Liquid Soul was born.

In 2006 he founded his own label Mikrokosmos records. Besides solo project Sleek, he also partners Martin Knecht in the deadly duo “Earsugar”.

Being behind the best selling albums on Iboga Records as Liquid Soul, „synthetic vibes“, „love in stereo“ and „cocktails“, over 100 hypnotic releases on top labels and playing worldwide over a decade, he finally won the Beatport award for the best psytrance track in 2009.
In 2010 he achieved his biggest success by winning the price of the best Beatport artist, best Beatport track and the Dj Awards in Ibiza in psy trance categories.


2) Chicago, US acid jazz outfit Liquid Soul originally comprised saxophonist/musical director Mars Williams, DJ Jesse de la Peña, guitarist Tommy Klein, bassist Ricky Showalter, trumpeter Ron Haynes, keyboardist Frankie Hill, and drummer Dan Leali; formed in 1993, the group quickly emerged as a Windy City club favorite thanks to their regular Sunday night gigs at the Elbo Room, and soon recorded a self-titled debut LP for their own Soul What label.

    As a jazz lover, I came across Liquid Soul reading some jazz article and decided to look it up on Youtube. It was "Sweet things" and I was like "whaaaat, this is not jazz!", but oh my God how I liked it! I still don't bother looking for that jazz stuff I wondered about back then, the new things are awesome enough to satisfy me!

    Is seems like funky/jazz fans of Liquid Soul have a big problem with the electronic one. Take it easy people ;-)

    Dear Last.fm, Recommending that I listen to Ace Ventura was pretty dumb. And it's all because you appear unable to tell the difference between the Liquid Soul I like (Horns, Bass, Drums, etc) and the one I don't really care about (Sorry, other Liquid Soul, I'm sure you're a wonderful person, just not the music I want to hear.)
