During one of his performances at the inaugural Wakaan Music Festival, Liquid Stranger revealed he has a new record label on the way. Before slowing his set down, he made the announcement to literal gasps from the crowd.

Below is a paraphrased transcription of most of the fan-captured announcement. Due to the nature of the recording, the exact spelling of the new label's name cannot be confirmed. In Liquid Stranger's own words:

"I'm starting a new label and it's called Saskaan (spelling?) and it's gonna be for downtempo music. Wakaan is Native American for Grandmother Earth, for the female essence of god. As Saskaan is our heavenly father, that's the male essence of god. So together, when we have these two components I feel we have something pretty unified. I've been working pretty hard on the first release for the new label Saskaan..."

He also goes on to explain his Shamanistic roots as well as his love for martial arts, giving fans a look into the life of the 40-year-old Swedish producer.
