Nicola Capobianco, a Swiss born deejay /producer who is better known for his
project called LIQUID SOUL.
Falling in love with electronic music from a very young age, he almost
immediately took an interest in DJ’ing back in 1993, this is the very year where
his journey into the world of music officially begun. It became clear that his
new found passion wasn't just a passing phase and would last as he made the
decision to venture deeper into music, this quickly saw him find his way around
the studio as this was the next phase of his progression. He started crafting
himself a unique sound signature. This hugely assisted his career and has help
sustained his constant heavy flow of bookings all over Europe, ranging from
festivals to big raves.
Shortly after the turn of the millennium (2001), Nicola discovered the
psychedelic side of trance music, which was around the same time that he felt
the urge to again explore new avenues within his music. This reinvention
process gave birth to his current and popular project; LIQUID SOUL. During
this period he formed part of a handful of artists & producers who all played
vital roles in shaping the psy-progressive trance landscape to where it has
LIQUID SOUL became a worldwide sensation for his distinctive sound
signature. A sound that can be best described as masterfully capturing emotion
through the perfect use of uplifting melodies which manages to intelligently
fuse elements of Trance and Psychedelic Trance. These unique qualities have
simply set LIQUID SOUL apart from the pack, making him one of the most
desirable artists in the business today.
The LIQUID SOUL project rapidly gained its own momentum, and was
instantly approached with an exclusive record label deal from IBOGA Records,
(who still is the most recognized and respected psy- progressive trance label
today), LIQUID SOUL became the labels biggest selling artist over the past
decade. Today, 2016 exactly marks the 10yrs anniversary of 'Synthetic Vibes',
his debut album that descended onto the world with huge success, followed by
three chart topping albums named 'Love in Stereo' in 2008, 'Cocktails' his remix
album in 2009, and more recently 'Revolution' in 2013 which again was another
masterpiece. This also included countless hypnotic releases featuring several
remixes as well as a host of various artist compilations.
To stay within the public eye and more importantly to have more creative
outlets, Nicola formed part of several side projects, most of which are
collaborations with other well established artists. The projects have all received
great international support, playing a vital role in keeping LIQUID SOUL very
relevant among other producers, but most importantly to his fast growing fan
base worldwide. Some of the better known projects are: LIQUID ACE (together
with Ace Ventura), LIQUID HOOK (together with Captain Hook), as well as
the deadly EARSUGAR duo (together with Human Element), and lastly his
own experimental solo project called 'SLEEK' which focuses more on the
deeper minimal and progressive tech genres.
Other very impressive career highlights include winning the acclaimed DJ
Awards in Ibiza for the psy-trance category, furthermore he won two
BEATPORT awards; 'Best Track' in 2009 and the prestigious 'Best Artist' award
in 2010. Finally toping things off, he very comfortably still holds the most #1
releases within the psy- progressive trance categories on BEATPORT, which
again speaks for itself.
With such an impressive track record and dynamic career it makes complete
sense why LIQUID SOUL has presently become one of the highest booked and
most in demand artists. With over 100 performances annually, ranging from
Festivals, Shows and Clubs such as BOOM, Ozora, Tomorrowland, Ministry of
Sound and ASOT to mention a few.
The future surrounding this talented artist is certainly going places, so get
strapped in as the ride has only just begun.
