Sleepy & Boo play electronic music of all shapes and sizes, rocking rooms big and small across New York City and beyond. They love thick drums, big basslines, hypnotic grooves and tripped-out sci-fi synthesizers, and know how to put it all together. Forget sticking to just one genre — as DJs, they are known for their diversity and their knack for picking tracks from across the musical spectrum. Whether taking the crowd on a twisted late night excursion, or pushing peak-hour mayhem, Sleepy & Boo never fail to turn a dancefloor inside out.
From their home base in New York, Sleepy & Boo have become preeminent players in the Big Apple’s dynamic underground music scene. For the last six years, they’ve been the resident DJs and driving force behind Basic NYC, their celebrated Saturday night throwdown at New York’s infamous Sullivan Room. At the party, Sleepy & Boo have played alongside and hosted the world’s most important DJs, all performing to a packed house of energetic music lovers. It’s an event that’s recognized for its diversity, with partygoers treated to a huge range of talent and sounds (everyone from Kaskade to Jeff Mills have been guests over the years). Named as New York’s “Best Dance Party 2009” by New York Magazine in April, Basic NYC has become an international destination for clubbers eager to catch world-class DJs in an intimate, down-and-dirty space.
Apart from their own events, the duo is consistently DJing at the best parties in New York, and work regularly with the city’s most important event organizers. They have been featured at both editions of Made Event’s Electric Zoo Festival, and have performed around the world in England, Germany, Japan and Spain (including a summer 2010 set for Space Ibiza’s BE party). On any given weekend in New York, Sleepy & Boo can be heard playing regular sets and guest spots at notable venues like Cielo, Pacha, Santos Party House, and Water Taxi Beach. They’ve opened up for some of the world’s biggest artists, DJing alongside the most important top-tier DJs – Steve Lawler, James Zabiela, Steve Angello, Timo Maas, Deadmau5, M.A.N.D.Y, Danny Howells, and many more. Every year, they also take Basic NYC to Miami for the Winter Music Conference, where their daytime, outdoor events at the Beach Plaza Hotel have become some of the WMC’s most anticipated annual fiestas. They have recently launched their own monthly residency at Cielo, where Sleepy & Boo are the headlining guests, joined by their own supporting artists and friends.
Sleepy & Boo have worked tirelessly to bring quality, cutting-edge dance music to New York’s clubbers, both through their own DJ sets, and the events they organize. With their S&B Sessions podcast now up on iTunes, and plans for a digital label in the works, Sleepy & Boo continue to look for new ways to share their enthusiasm and love for this music and culture.
