About

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. :-)

We signed up at bandcamp to make the whole slaapwel records backcatalogue available in flac and/or mp3 format. Every download includes a more than hi-quality scan of the artwork as well as high quality sound files.

Asleep

The slaapwel records site is under construction for a short while. It's online and running (as you can see) - but it's being worked on as we speak, so you might encounter some quirky behaviour. There's a new release and a double labelnight due in december. If you're interested in obtaining Greg Haines - Komarovo - send an e-mail to slaapwelrecords@gmail.com. There are only a few copies left.

Thanks!
