Kirsty Parker grew up playing violin, piano, and guitar, shredding it out in local bands before she became enamoured with synthesisers and Ableton. Now she uses those modern tools to shape the dark techno productions that flow from her as Speaker Honey. It’s a name that’s already on the lips of Mau5trap fans.
Following the drop of her debut single ‘Shoyu’, which appeared on the label’s ‘We Are Friends Vol. 9’ compilation in 2019, Speaker Honey has racked up numerous releases on the star-making imprint — for instance, her 2022 EP ‘Animate Life’, a shadowy, two-track pairing that defies her sticky-sweet namesake with its dark and percussive low-end and haunting swells, is the stuff of sweaty after-hours legend. And speaking of late night mayhem, she recently appeared as support at the official Kx5 (Kaskade and Deadmau5) after-party that followed the super duo’s record-breaking performance at LA Memorial Coliseum last month.
There, she ushered in a new wave of admirers to wrap up a transformative year for the producer and multi-instrumentalist. Speaker Honey will be back in action on the seafaring Groove Cruise departing from Miami on January 19th — but if seasickness is a concern, we hear she’s got some pretty ill tunes queued up in the cannon, too. Her newest cut, ‘SOUL’, is due out now on the ‘We Are Friends Vol. 11’ compilation, so keep an ear out for that crusher. Megan Venzin
