Spekulation - Album Release with The Bad Tenants + Sleep Steady + Travis Thompson + DJ Absolute Madman

Spekulation is a Seattle-based emcee and producer who blends samples with live instrumentation to create hiphop records that represent Seattle’s deep and diverse music culture. In the past year he has released two albums, been played on KUBE, KISS and KEXP, and scored a short film featuring some of the world’s top dancers which was featured in The New York Times and Washington Post. On stage, he performs with DJ AbsoluteMadman, Nate Omdal and an 8-piece band, bringing together some of the city’s most talented instrumentalists.

In early 2014, Spekulation remixed the now-infamous “Bout That Action” Marshawn Lynch interview, and the track went viral, garnering 250,000 plays in the first week, and was featured on NFL Network and Fox Sports. Pitchfork devoted an article to the remix, writing, “No joke, this is probably the best song I’ve heard in 2014″. A few months later Spekulation released the single and video, “Home Of The Mighty“, the Seattle anthem that earned him a place on the list of Seattle Magazine’s top hiphop artists. He has spent the last year producing songs for other Seattle artists, and beginning work on his debut full-length album.
