Biography

Sleep Party People is the brainchild of Brian Batz, a Danish multi-instrumentalist with a boundless imagination.

Taking as inspiration the work of Boards Of Canada, David Lynch and Erik Satie, Batz found the sound of the old battered piano in his apartment, coupled with a freaky electronic alteration of his recorded voice, created an eerie, hypnotic sound.

With his other worldly signature sound in place, this one-man home recording project started to take shape back in 2008, the collection of weird and haunting melodies he created forming the basis for Sleep Party People’s self-titled debut album (2010).

Back home in Denmark electronic pioneer Trentemøller showed his approval by offering SPP a slot on his sold out tour - followed by The Antlers and Efterklang pledging allegiance asking SPP to join them as support on their Scandinavian outings. Appearances at Roskilde Festival, By:larm and Eurosonic along with an extensive European tour and a Youtube live-video that clocked up over 1.100.000 views further cemented Sleep Party People’s burgeoning reputation.

The overall atmosphere he fashioned, one that evokes the disorientating world between being asleep and awake, wasn’t a conscious effort. “I’ve always been a huge fan of instrumental ambient music, but I never felt that I should throw myself into making such music, but when I started the process I really got the taste of it and began to love the blend between the organic and digital world.”

    I'm satisfied with their new album. It's good. Similar to their previous works, but slightly different.

    Прикольные, но лучше без вокала. А можете что-то без вокала порекомендовать? Он какой-то мультяшный слишком.

    Well, I listened to Floating a couple of times already and I can say that i'm not disappointed at all! It's different, with more clean vocals, but it's still amazing and beautiful. The album also has a more ambient-ish sounding with more soundscapes, which sounds wonderful and feels other-worldly.

    Floating is different. I really liked the ultra-auto-tuned vocals on the previous albums [1]

    Hmmm, so the new vocals are clean? :( I really liked the ultra-auto-tuned vocals on the previous albums, gave the songs such a cute-creepy vibe like in "A Sweet Song About Love", the new ones are also beautiful but not so captivating as the other ones, still excited for the album though
