About this Playlist
A hump day music playlist with rap, beat and sprechgesang
Looking for a hump day music playlist filled with rhythm speech, rhyme or expressionist vocals? Our musicto community’s diverse and dynamic Wednesday mixtape has your back with the unique sounds of rap, beat and sprechgesang to hip hop over the middle of the week. Better yet, this playlist might just be the kick of inspiration you need leading up to your weekend freestyle battle or poetry slam.
What is the musicto community Flow & Slam playlist?
Flow is a reference to rap music. Specifically, it’s the rhyme and rhythm component. Other components of rapping include content and delivery. Slam is a reference to spoken word poetry which, like the freestyle battle in rap, is usually performed live. However, with the advent of the internet, many slam poets like Shane Koyczan, Nuno Pinteira and Catie Trainor have put their spoken words to music. Nevertheless, you’re likely to find more rap and hip hop, and even a mix of speak-singing, on the Flow & Slam playlist.
Of course, there will always be surprises from a global community of curators like musicto. Along with rap and slam, you might find dub poets like Jamaican Oku Onuora on one playlist update and beat poets like American Allen Ginsberg the next. And lets not forget sprechgesang style talk-singing artists like Sonic Youth and Bob Dylan or artists like Billie Eilish, who has dabbled in the sing-speak style.
