Slava's latest genre-hopping feat is "Speechless," a three-minute excursion into ambient drum & bass. The Brooklyn producer imbues the track with a sense of cosmopolitan disarray, combining galloping drums with a slew of vocal samples which express confusion in a variety of accents and languages. Those vocal samples are in fact taken from recorded phone conversations with numerous international art galleries about their interior architecture, which is the unifying thread on World Wide Gallery Traxx, a mixtape compiled by Croatian visual artists Dora and Maja. Besides featuring "Speechless," that nine-track offering also contains contributions from Brenmar, Pictureplane, M.E.S.H., and more, and is available to stream in full, after the jump.
