After a long and stressful day in the office, I felt the need to calm down when I returned home. I felt the need to listen to something smooth, something relaxing. Groovy, but not too energetic. “Pegasus” of DJ Sleeptalker did the trick.
With a wide space setting, reverbed synth lines and a guitar track smooth as silk, DJ Sleeptalker manages to relax your soul within the first seconds of this track. Adding more elements over the whole intro, the song finally reaches the groove point, keeping the listener in the flow from there on. The used elements remind me a lot of those typical productions like e. g. Café del Mar tracks. Typical chillout elements used in an intelligent way. Not overloaded, but enough to keep you listening with that curiosity, wondering what will happen next. I found myself slightly grooving to the steady slow beat, and that music was exactly what I wanted to hear tonight.
“Pegasus” is one of the tracks of DJ Sleeptalkers album “Pegasus from Space” which was released already in 2015, alongside 13 other tracks and a mixtrack on it, available on all major distribution labels, distributed by the german based tyranno media group. Those other tracks on the album are sketching a complete picture of what DJ Sleeptalker is all about – dreamy chillout, with the playful usage of electro synth lines, and sometimes picking up the pace by using glitches, swooshes, vocal one-shots and noises. All those elements aren’t new to the genre, I give you that. But, the intelligent arrangement of those are the essence of Sleeptalkers music. Listen for yourself! And be prepared to relax.
