‘Sleep’ is a meandering, jazz-soaked rap creation that plays out like a fevered dream with DEACON’s steam-of-consciousness bars swerving through
a dizzying array of subjects’ –

For Glastonbury brothers Guy and Todd Speakman collaboration is key. Working with a range of artists and creatives from different fields from their North London studio, Speakman Sound returned last month with their first new music of the year. ‘Via Lactea’ features the vocals of NAALA and has picked up key tastemaker support, including from BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens.
 
Speakman Sound now reveal the next single taken from the upcoming ‘LIMBIC’ EP. Featuring the vocals of rising London rapper DEACON, ‘Sleep’ fuses together flavours of hip-hop showcasing another side of the brother’s production style. With the distinctive vocals of DEACON featuring throughout, ‘Sleep’ is Speakman Sound’s next output and a further exhibition of their ability to work with artists from varying genres and fields.
 
“We got DEACON in the studio to write on a beat we were messing with. We gave him a theme (the conflict of both thriving in the city and wanting to escape it at the same time)
and away he went crafting his story!” – 
Speakman Sound
 
Following the success of his first EP ‘Cotton Wolf’, along with a UK support tour last year for Akala, DEACON’S collaboration on ‘Sleep’ sees the rapper return to the studio with Speakman Sound for the second time.
 
“I knew we had to get back in the studio from when we collaborated with Freemonk
on my sophomore single, ‘Freedom’. I appreciate anyone that puts in the hours and Speakman
have put in the years. These guys are THOROUGH and it’s an absolute pleasure working with them.
We’ve created something really special.” – 
DEACON
 
Exposed to a range of genres from an early age, Speakman Sound’s youth was spent immersed within the Somerset rave scene where they began to craft their own blend of electronic music. Now based in London, the brothers have already caught the attention of industry tastemakers including Wonderland, Complex, Clash Music and Mixmag.
 
‘Sleep’ is released today via Speakman Sound’s own ‘Ears To Learn With Records’. See them live at London’s Bermondsey Social Club onWednesday 14th August.
