When constructing a post here on DML, us writers must select which genre the project or song we are posting falls in to. Well, let me tell you, that was one of the most difficult decisions I’ve had to make in recent history. How can you categorize the man of a million sounds? To be honest I cheated and checked four different genre boxes: acoustic, pop, hip-hop, and alternative. Individually, these categories hold no representation of Jon Bellion’s music. As a whole, I’m getting a bit closer, however, I’m still lost and utterly stumped when I try to put a label on this free album!
Translations Through Speakers is one of the most diverse albums I have ever had the pleasure of listening to, each new song a short story with a beautifully self-produced instrumental. The mixtape features ten songs, four which were previously released as singles, six brand new, and all must-listens.
This is Jon’s first official full-length project, and with the numbers and recognition he has garnered thus far, it is safe to say that Visionary Music Group is running the game.
