Leo Kennis I have to wake up early and travel by train to my job. If I want to sleep during my commute, I put on my headphones, start this track...and as soon as we left the station I'm already half dreaming.

Edu Hackenitz Sadly I discovered this cd in 2014 while it was already released in 2010. Therefore this hidden treasure remains playing all day long to catch up and I think it is fantastic.

Runman The piece is a wonderful walk along slowly pulsating sine waves, lingering piano loops, cradling strings and the solar warmth of little cracks, pops and soft hisses. Ruis truly is a hidden treasure.
Music to fall asleep with.

about

I was unaware of Bernard Zwijzen’s project Sonmi451 until he sent me an email saying the music he was sculpting was sleepy too. Obviously I was interested, but told him Slaapwel is not a joke. Sleepy music is not enough: it has to work, I need to fall asleep before I can even think of releasing it. He promptly made a 32 minute piece aimed at making people fall asleep. I tried and I slept. The piece is a wonderful walk along slowly pulsating sine waves, lingering piano loops, cradling strings and the solar warmth of little cracks, pops and soft hisses. Ruis truly is a hidden treasure. At first it seems to be nothing more but a lovely track, “ordinary” prettiness, though once you put it on while you’re trying to sleep, it becomes as essential as your pillow or your favorite blanket. It is probably the most efficient piece we’ve had the chance to release. A lush, soft and hypnotic path into unconsciousness.
