Speaker for the Dead is a producer, DJ, multi-instrumenalist from Philly who released a few days ago his debut EP called Illusionaire. This EP is worth checking just for the title track alone which is a real orgy of crazy distortions, guitar-like riffs and heavy basslines plus overwhelming synth work. A track which perfectly fits the description "It blew my mind" :) James Sauppe is an intelligent and skillful producer and offers much more thank sick drops and bowel-twisting sonic assault. He actually creates very interesting, listener-friendly Intelligent Bass Music, each tune a fully fledged composition telling different story, using different patterns and having a lot of space for unraveling various paths for listener to follow. His music is often disturbing and unnerving, like in my personal best tunes on this EP - Illusionaire, Particle Voyager or Sunset on Mars, but also offers a cinematic 'depth', like in Nocturnal or Fade Out.
Don't hesitate peeps, grab this EP on iTunes, CD Baby, amazon and at other stores.
