Sleepy & Boo "Return to Order EP"
NYC mainstays Sleepy & Boo make their return to 3Bridge Records with their second label EP of 2017, the three-track 'Return to Order EP'. This release is one of the duo's most accomplished works yet, a shimmering collection of uplifting and melodic gems that are sure to create long-lasting dancefloor memories. We're very excited to welcome them back with this expertly crafted EP, highlighting a new dimension to Sleepy & Boo's evolving sound.
The title track 'Return to Order' has its genesis in the eighth meditation sound path that Begoña of Sleepy & Boo has been creating over the last year. Its melody is a haunting guitar loop that conjures up a dreamy morning groove, anchored by a hypnotic bassline and upfront, precise percussion. As dubbed-out, delayed stabs and warm pads are introduced, the track builds to an ethereal crescendo. 'Return to Order' has been a staple of Sleepy & Boo's sets over the last few months, with partygoers routinely approaching the booth for a track ID when they hear it.
Up next we have 'Glimmer', a composition that delves deep into emotional atmospheres and textures.. This track is driven by a powerful chord progression that strengthens and evolves as it moves forward. There's a peak-hour, hands-in-the-air break, as soaring arpeggios and vocal samples intensify the energy for a true goosebump-inducing experience.
Wrapping up this release is 'White Light', which weaves the melodic themes of the previous two tracks into a tight, techno-flavored, late-night workout. Rolling basslines, filtered analog synths, hypnotic notes, and an extended keyboard solo are some of the most prominent elements of the track, making it an ideal selection for DJs looking for a unique and moody pick to stand out in their set.

Biography Sleepy & Boo
Sleepy & Boo's undying passion for underground music pervades everything they do. As DJs, this duo have become essential figures and pre-eminent players in the Big Apple's dynamic music scene. They have left their mark on countless dancefloors of all shapes and sizes, rocking rooms both big and small across New York City and beyond. Their sets are all about the groove, mixing together the best tracks from across the musical spectrum, hand-selecting the choicest cuts to create an unmatched vibe and atmosphere that takes the crowd to the limit. Whether supporting some of the world's biggest DJs, or crafting their own headlining sets, Sleepy & Boo are known for their musical diversity and knack for picking the right tracks at the right moment.
They are the resident DJs and driving force behind Basic NYC, their events and production organization, which features Sleepy & Boo playing alongside a "who’s who" of the world’s most important performing to a packed house of energetic music lovers. It’s an event recognized for its diversity, with partygoers treated to a huge range of talent and sounds (everyone from deep house veterans to the newest names in techno have been guests). Named as New York’s “Best Dance Party 2009” by New York Magazine, Basic NYC has become an international destination for clubbers eager to catch world-class DJs in top-notch spaces, taking place at some of New York's finest venues. But it's not just about out-of-town guests - for over two and a half years, Sleepy & Boo headlined their own monthly Sleepy & Boo + Friends residency at Cielo, which featured them playing extended headlining sets alongside friends and guests from New York. In 2014, this night was re-launched as ILLUSION, and takes place every month at Cielo. And in the Fall of 2012, Basic NYC staged a series of underground loft parties that featured an array of techno and tech-house DJs playing well into the morning, creating an infectious old-school warehouse vibe with top-notch production - crystal clear sound, visuals and decor. Their work has included residencies at clubs including Sullivan Room, District 36, Marquee New York, (le) Poisson Rouge and more.
In 2015, Sleepy & Boo embarked on a new phase of their dancefloor journey, as they began their foray in production. Following their debut release - the three-track “17th Floor EP” on NYC’s esteemed Nervous Records - they have quickly built up their discography. In just over a year and a half, they have released EPs on labels including Italy’s Lapsus Music, New York’s 3Bridge Records and De-Noize Records, the legendary Yoshitoshi, the UK’s Savoir Faire Musique, San Fran’s Moulton Music, Romania’s Quanticman, and the classic Big Apple Nite Grooves imprint. There’s loads of new releases in the pipeline as Sleepy & Boo continue to evolve their dancefloor-driven sound in the studio.
Apart from their own events, the duo is consistently DJing at some of the best parties, venues and festivals around the world. They appeared at the beloved inaugural edition of Mysteryland USA, and helped launch the Escape Music Festival in New York City. They performed at the legendary Ultra Music Festival in 2015. They’ve played at three editions of the renowned Electric Zoo Festival; the first-ever Electric Daisy Carnival New York; the Dance.Here.Now. festival at Governor’s Island; DJed at some of LiveNations’ massive Roseland events; and have rocked dancefloors around the world in England, Germany, Canada, Japan and Spain (including sets at Ibiza’s legendary Space, Amnesia and Pacha clubs). In 2013, they were guests at Luciano's legendary Vagabundos party at Booom in Ibiza, and joined him at Cipriani’s in New York that year for a memorable Halloween event. They were hand-picked by Kaskade to support him on his groundbreaking Redux tour in April 2013, and appeared at Lavo Las Vegas during the club's EDC 2013 run of underground after-hours events. They've also been nominated several times for the prestigious DJ Times America's Best DJ poll.
Sleepy & Boo have worked tirelessly to bring quality, cutting-edge dance music to New York’s clubbers, both through their own music, and the events they organize. Their love for electronic music and culture permeates every project they take on and every set they play, and they will always be aligned with great artists, great music, and expanding the minds of their fans and followers.
