Dear sleepy friends!
Wim, founding father of Slaapwel Records and long time friend, asked me last year if I wanted to take care of the label. Since I loved the label from the beginning, I accepted with no hesitation and started my search for sleepy tunes.
I found out Heine Christensen aka Ghost and Tape was very interested in making a Slaapwel-album. Heine and I got in touch, and so it began!
I received his pieces, checked them out the same evening, and yes, it worked! (I had to try several evenings before I finally made it to the end...)
Slaapwel alumnus and friend Ralph Steinbrüchel (ORDNER) took care of the graphic design, and photographer Brian Young provided beautiful pictures.
It took some time, but here we are: very proud to present you Slaapwel xii: 'Shift', by Ghost and Tape. A wonderful album with warm and soothing music, performed on electric guitar, effect pedals, Op-1, field recorder and found objects.
A wonderful album with warm and soothing music, a perfect Slaapwel soundtrack, not only for reawakening of the label, but also a soundtrack that will guide you from awake to sleep.
You can stream and/or buy the album here.
I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I do.
