LCD Soundsystem frontman returns to his roots with amazing custom speaker set
James Murphy’s new trio Despacio has assembled one of the most impressive sound systems on the planet
A huge 50,000-watt rig has been designed by the trio down to the very last detail, consisting of eight enormous 11-foot speaker stacks, positioned in a circle pointing at the audience in the center. It’s been tuned for optimum sound quality, not maximum loudness. “The system is like a dinosaur, if dinosaurs had survived and evolved along with modern creatures,” James says.
