It’s time to get your beat on! Music royalty scion Maxene Magalona engages the senses on the cover of Speed’s special Audio-Video issue. This July, Speed sees you through a revolution of sound as high-resolution audio shapes the future of digital music.

Pump up the volume with the best-looking vintage-style hi-fi speakers in the market. Put these to good use and explore JunoRedFeather’s and DJ Jena’s top electronica and hip-hop picks. Be a DJ yourself by learning the basics from DJ Rye Armamento of Music Colony and previously Sun Valley Crew, mix a whole new different kind of jam with the wonders of Raspberry Pi, discover the magic behind voice acting with the voice master Pocholo Gonzales, or sit back and read up on Joe Satriani, The Beatles, and Stanley Kubrick.
