Russ Liquid Test Fuses New Orleans And Dance Music In Bumpin’ Debut Single, “Honesty”

first_imgMeet The Russ Liquid Test! The new creation from Russell Scott aka Russ Liquid, is a live performance project that harnesses the funky power of New Orleans music. The band consists of Andrew Block on guitar, A.J. Hall & Alvin Ford Jr. on drums, and Russell Scott (Russ Liquid) on trumpet, keys, and a variety of technological extremities.The idea behind the live group came to life as Russ reflected on his performing style and the way in which he designs his music. A long-time admirer of jazz band leaders such as Dizzy Gillespie, his approach to composing music has always been influenced by the great minds he cherished. Constantly implementing improvisation into his writing and live performances, Russ hand-picked a select team of his favorite musicians to join him on the stage. Orchestrating his compositions as the psychedelic band leader, he guides the group through the tantalizing highs and glorious lows of his mind-bending sonic soundscapes.With a new EP due out later this year, the band introduced themselves with a brand new single. Stream “Honesty” below, and get ready to boogie.Says Russ, “We wanted to create something that embodies both the modern sound of electronic music with the rich heritage of New Orleans music, so we mashed up electronic production with the sounds of New Orleans second line in a very unique way that is both future and vintage.  The glue of this piece is the live drums with its second line-esque snare rolls and huge horn section driving the music, which we achieved by getting Alvin Ford Jr on drums (Dumpstaphunk and Pretty Lights) and a horn section featuring New Orleans players including Eric “Benny” Bloom of Lettuce and Aaron Neville’s band.”Expect big things from this new project, as they’ve already signed on to the All Good Records label.

Yogurt may reduce type 2 diabetes risk

first_imgA new study led by Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) researchers found that higher consumption of yogurt was associated with a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes. Other forms of dairy were not found to offer similar protection.Drawing on health data from more than a 100,000 participants in three long-running studies — the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study (1986 to 2010), Nurses’ Health Study (1980 to 2010), and Nurses’ Health Study II (1991 to 2009) — the researchers found that a daily serving of yogurt was linked to an 18 percent lower risk of type 2 diabetes.Senior author Frank Hu, professor of nutrition and epidemiology, told Forbes that the mechanisms behind this finding “are not well understood at this point. One hypothesis is that the probiotics in yogurt may help to improve insulin sensitivity and reduce inflammation, but this hypothesis needs to be tested in randomized clinical trials.” Read Full Storylast_img read more

Ampelmann Ups Offshore Lifting Game

first_imgAmpelmann has revealed a new access system that is said to be capable of transferring personnel and cargo of up to 5 tons.Source: AmpelmannThe E5000, with its full motion compensation, will be able to operate in high sea states, extending the weather window of operations, Ampelmann said.According to the Dutch company, the switch between people and cargo mode takes less than a minute and just one push of a button, which turns vessels into an all-round offshore tool resulting in shorter campaign durations, increased logistical efficiency and a broader scope of work.The system is based on the technology of the E1000, which was launch in 2016. It is expected to be operational in the third quarter of 2020.“Building on the success of the E1000 and the specific needs of our clients, we recognised an opportunity to design and develop a system that can transfer people and lift up to 5 tons of cargo. That significantly broadens the possibilities of the offshore lifting scope compared to existing systems,” said Diederick Nierstrasz, Ampelmann’s Offshore Wind Business Unit Manager.“With the E1000, we launched a unique system on the market. As the market recognised its potential, clients requested more lifting capacity and we believe the E5000 can offer a compelling package for them to get the most out of their offshore campaigns.”last_img read more
