Slaapwel Records is a small record label specialized in music to fall asleep to. Often I find myself lying awake in bed, not sleepy enough to fall asleep, not lively enough to keep doing stuff. I figured it would be good if there was more music that soundtracks the thin border between being asleep and lying awake, deliberately choosing the sleepy side of things. So I set out, looking for people that would be good at making mind-soothing songs. I ask them to write a sleep-inducing record, I listen to it, and when I fail to reach the end because I fell asleep, I release it as a musical record. All artists are various people I met through the years, different yet all connected with their unique talent. I think they are very good at making "boring" music. This is not an insult. I love their music to death and I think they are all very capable of making wonderful sleep-inducing songs. In any case, don't make too much of it. It is all just good fun. Sleepy fun.

Demo Policy

We're really humbled by all the requests for releasing a record. It's very flattering you think Slaapwel could be a good home, but, in all honesty: if you made an album and you're looking for a label to release it: Slaapwel can't do that for you. Slaapwel only releases albums specifically made for people to fall asleep to. Much like scientists, we do a test with each submission before releasing it. If you want to make something special, feel free to send it over. We promise we'll try it out, if it works, we'll get back to you, if it doesn't, we prefer staying quiet because it is no fun to say it didn't work. :-) 


New Release! Sonmi451's "Ruis"

Dear Sleepyheads
I'm very happy to announce a new and essential addition to your bedroom (aka the room where the magic happens if you're an mtv cribs dude). Slaapwel Records newest item is Sonmi451's RUIS. It contains a cd, digital download and a Louis Reith print. Pricetag is 8 euro (+ shipping). It is also made in an edition of 500 copies. Sooo... if you want to have it, ... (yes the pretty thing below), ... then you should ... 

seriously, don't sleep on it! 
(hahaha, you won't believe how long i waited to make this joke!) 

But in all honesty, why I believe you should consider a purchase: Because it simply works! Put the cd on and drift off... The 32 minute 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. At first it seems to be nothing more but a lovely track, “ordinary” prettiness, though once you are well in your bed, 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. Also, the CD comes with artwork by dutch designer louis reith, because if you have to look for this cd on a daily basis, it'd better look good. Also, as a side note be sure to visit or 'like' our fancy facebook page at It's good for our web 2.0 score.

Thanks + have a good rest,

Wim - Jo - Ulrike

    Hey guys….today I am going to discuss on the topic that “why education is important for poor people”. It’s a serious issue for our country because most of the poor children don’t go to school and those who go does not get the proper facilities to study.

    In India, women’s are deemed to be a financial burden on the families, which gives rise to an action of female feticide. Due to this discriminative thinking, the sex ratio has become imbalanced i.e. there are more number of boys in India than girls.

When celebrities appear in important occasions, most of them choose to wear a replica panerai radiomir, which is a symbol of their status. As general people, we still can choose an appropriate replica patek philippe watches which is per our identities. And the replica piaget altiplano can directly tell others who we are and help us to get close to others. The watches fake is also a good topic first of all a conversation.
