Far removed from the throwaway world of superficial dance culture, Music for Speakers’ ‘Compilation 2’ is about breaking boundaries. It’s about popsongs, only different. It’s about exploring new rhythmic and melodic structures. It’s as much headz as feet. It’s about artists with whom athenticity comes first. And most of all: It’s a set of clues for things to come.
The music of these artists has been described as triphop, future soul, detroit, illbient, d&b, broken beats or nu-jazz, but none of these terms do them justice. Although these elements can be recognized, the result is always innovating, challenging and unexpected. Therefor the only truly accurate description of their work would be: “…sounds like Music For Speakers”.
