SPEAKPANTHER is a collaborative effort between rapper/songwriter Speak and multi-instrumentalist/producer Dream Panther. Both Southern California natives, they have been renowned in their respective creative circles as fearless genre bending artists with little regard for stylistic limits.
Blending lush guitars and hazy production that feel like a Santa Monica sunset, Dream Panther (Gregg Sheran) successfully builds an idyllic, complimentary texture for SPEAK's (Anthony Negrete) lyrics about life on both sides of the Mexico-U.S border. - Anney Terrain
