Lazy Hammock is back with brand new album Speak Of The Mind

[review]

UK Artist, Producer, DJ, Songwriter, Vocalist, Remixer and Radio Presenter Lazy Hammock is back with a brand new full album distributed by Diventa Music. Speak Of The Mind is the result of years of a creative process that has led to a product that is mature, refined and meticulously arranged.

For those who love electronic chill out music, Lazy Hammock’s sound and voice are rather familiar. Described as an ‘International Chill Out Expert’ in a review for the ‘Luxury Lounge Ibiza’ compilation, her track ‘One of those days’ released on the “Bar Lounge Classics” (SONY BMG), was in the Top 10 of best Lounge Tracks and her track Summer Breeze, co-written with Casbah, reached No 49 in the German pop charts. Julian Lennon also picked her track ‘In Flight’ as ‘Track of the Week’ on his Below Zero Beats radio show.
Her productions & remixes have been licensed to over 1000 compilations worldwide, including MINISTRY OF SOUND, SONY BMG and EMI.

Speak Of The Mind, out May 5, 2017, is Lazy Hammock’s 6th studio album. The quality of the production reaches high levels on this 12-track album that promises to get the listener addicted to a state of mind that will swing from quiet moods to heart-warming sensual ballads. The title track – personally my favourite – is an emotive, heart-felt, polished ballad that reminds – with its cinematic piano and the opening line “I don’t speak of the devil, I speak of the mind” – of Alicia Keys in her early times.

Speak of the mind takes you on a raw and emotive journey through love, pain, war and life, expressed through Lazy Hammocks unique and deeply poignant music and lyrics. Touching on genres from electronica, chill house and reggae, to drum & bass, songwriter and spoken word, this is an album which is sure to caress the senses, connect with the heart and touch the soul.
