Sleepy & Boo Return to Cielo for #ILLUSION on March 12th

February 24, 2016

New York’s production and DJ duo Sleepy & Boo are making their return to Cielo on Saturday, March 12th, presenting the next edition of their own #ILLUSION night. With Spring due to arrive soon in New York, this event is dedicated to the spirit of renewal and growth, summoning the energy and promise of the new seasons that await. #ILLUSION is Sleepy & Boo’s signature event, an opportunity for them to play a monthly headlining set on one of New York’s finest sound systems, joined each time by friends and up-and-coming local talent.

#ILLUSION is an event that invites partygoers to create their own reality. Combining optical illusion imagery in the artwork, with the Eastern philosophy that life itself is an illusion of the mind, this party uses music and the euphoria of dancing as the gateway to uncover this alternative understanding. Cielo’s pristine Funktion One sound system is the perfect way to deliver this message, with all the dimensions and frequencies of sound transmitted to the dancefloor. The club is celebrating it’s 13th anniversary in February, a milestone achievement for this longstanding sanctuary of top-notch sound and underground music.

2016 has been a busy year for Sleepy & Boo, hitting the road up and down the east coast to share their sounds at some of North America’s top nightclubs. In February, they debuted at Boston’s Bijou nightclub – alongside their friend Claptone – and they also returned to Washington DC’s U Street Music to support Victor Calderone. They close out the month with their fourth appearance at Montreal’s seductive Velvet speakeasy, and begin March by debuting at Providence’s infamous Therapy afterhours. And the night before they return to Cielo for #ILLUSION, Sleepy & Boo will play in St. Martin at the inaugural edition of the SX Music festival, playing at Tantra in the side room for Maceo Plex’s ellum showcase.  They are also working hard in the studio on new original music, with new releases coming shortly on New York’s 3Bridge Records, De-Noize Records and Nitegrooves.

To set the vibe for the next #ILLUSION, Sleepy & Boo have just uploaded a brand-new live mix to their Soundcloud page. Their March 2016 #ILLUSION mix features some deep grooves before segueing into tougher techno, with tracks from some of their favorite producers – including Dubspeeka, Kaiserdisco, and Reset Robot to name a few. That mix is live here –https://soundcloud.com/sleepy-boo/illusion-march-2016

Joining Sleepy & Boo in the booth for the night will be New York’s Iman Rizky and Gavin Stephenson, who will be making their #ILLUSION debut. This duo heads up the renowned ebb + flow parties in New NYC, events well regarded for their positive vibes and deep, melodic underground sounds.
