Here it is, the Loud Mouth Compilation Volume 5. It’s been a while in the making, but it’s been well worth the wait. This time around we have fifteen great tracks from our diverse roster of highly talented producers, ranging through ambient electronic, hip hop, experimental, up-tempo dance-floor material and some odd bits and bobs, as usual. We have most of our regular crew back with their usual quality work – Luke B, Gemsmiff, I.T.I.S. and Blake, Conall, Leigh, Ciaran, KiKi, Dark Passenger, Archetype, Rusty Child, as well as newcomer Calzone Kelly who is making plenty of waves around Dublin this weather with his tight melodic hip hop instrumentals, We have a very welcome return from Benny Smiles, another man who’s been getting plenty of well deserved attention the past while.
Hopefully as many people as possible take the time to listen through the compilation and get as much enjoyment out of it as we do. We know how much stuff is out there online and how the brain can reach saturation point in no time looking through blogs, facebook etc..., but don’t let this get forgotten about in your downloads folder like most of that other free stuff you download! We always put a lot of effort into these releases and try to arrange the tracks in an order that makes for a great listening experience the whole way through, and brings you on a musical journey – a proper album. We feel this has worked really well on all the compilations so far, and this one is no exception. Quite an achievement, if we may say so ourselves, considering there are no directions given to our artists other than to make a track in their own style and get it to us on time. Even with such a wide range of artists and styles, it always just seems to fall into place, and it’s always a pleasant surprise to listen to all the tracks together, making up something that’s equal to and more than the sum of its parts.
We’d like to send out big thanks and respect to all of our artists and contributors for delivering the goods yet again and doing us all proud, as well as all of our friends and supporters who have checked out the music, helped out, or been involved in any way. Please continue listening, checking our site, coming to our gigs and generally spreading the good word about Loud Mouth.
This will be the last compilation of its kind we will be doing for quite a while, but we have some other very interesting and exciting projects in the pipeline that you’ll be hearing about throughout 2013. Keep listening, keep watching, and keep it real!
Loud Mouth Collective.
