#Playlist: May 2015

Hola Speakerz!

It’s time for another of our monthly playlists! As usual, we’re bringing you both a YouTube and Spotify playlist of all of this month’s featured songs!

Muzik Speaks has been alive and kicking for just 3 months now and it’s still growing fast! During this month, we’ve reached 100 followers on Twitter, and nearly have 100 Facebook likes. We also did our first interview with the awesome Ali Tabatabaee from Zebrahead – he and Ben, both from the band, were so amazing to work with!

This month’s playlist also brought you some excellent tracks from the likes of; Maroon 5, Britney Spears and Nelly Furtado as well as songs from independent acts, like Andy Jordan and Jack Peñate. We also brought you music from newcomers Life Of Dillon, Prides and Ryn Weaver and finally we threw-back of your Thursdays with Wheatus, Five (5ive), Alien Ant Farm and Will Smith.

We hope you enjoy this month’s songs, all taken from our posts throughout May 2015 – Our apologies if some of the tracks are missing from the Spotify playlist – some may not have been released yet and some may have been removed from Spotify by the artist/band.

Note: You can view the whole YouTube playlist by using the dropdown menu at the top corner of the video, or skip a song using the ‘next’ button.


We’d like to ask you, to go ahead and ‘like’ our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/muzikspeaks) and ‘follow’ us on Twitter (www.twitter.com/muzik_speaks). Then if you could please post a status or send a tweet to your followers and friends to ask them to check us out, we’d be really grateful! We want to grow this community and we honestly can’t do it without your support!

Lastly, please please feel free to respond to our posts on Facebook or leave comments on each of our blog posts with your own tracks for each of the daily themes – we want to hear what you’re listening to because we love music as much as you, and we really enjoy finding out about new tunes. Thanks so much.

#WildCardWednesday: Master Shortie – ‘Dead End’

Master Shortie Banner

This week I’ve chosen Master Shortie as the #WildCardWednesday track. Master Shortie (born Theo Jerome Kerlin) is a London-based rapper who attended BRIT School until the age of 14 and at one time played Simba in the West-End production of Disney’s The Lion King.

This particular song, Dead End, was taken from his debut album, A.D.H.D. which was released back in 2009 and features (uncredited) vocals from none other than Labrinth (Timothy McKenzie). It has a very clear funk rhythm to it with its prominent guitar riff and then Labrinth’s distinct vocals in the chorus.

There were a couple of videos made for this song; the one I’ve chosen is the one which features Labrinth, which you can see below.

What do you think of this track? You feeling the funk as a mid-week pick-me-up? What’s your #WildCardWednesday track of choice?
