Philippa returns to her At Peace imprint this September with the ‘Sleep All Day’ EP, following on from the inaugural release on the label in June.
Producer and DJ Philippa was born and raised in New Zealand and was an integral part of the electronic music scene on her home turf for two decades; now residing in Berlin , Germany, she’s taken steps to spread her musical knowledge and productions to a wider audience courtesy of her fledgling imprint, At Peace. The label’s and her own debut EP was released in June 2019 and saw support from many leading figures in both the classic and contemporary house scene, thanks to Philippa’s tasteful, authentic and soulful approach towards the genre.
Here Philippa delivers the second release in the shape of ‘Sleep All Day’, and ‘Dragonfly’ takes the lead employing swirling vocal chants, bright piano samples and choppy, jazz- tinged double bass hits alongside an organic, swinging drum groove. The result is a dynamic and mellifluent house cut and perfectly carries over the aesthetic from the preceding release.
Title-track ‘Sleep All Day’ follows next, this time round taking a more groove-driven approach by fusing choppy funk guitar licks, circling bass notes, bright chords and tension building strings alongside raw, crunchy drums throughout. A Radio Edit of ‘Sleep All Day’ then closes the package, a more direct to the heart take on the composition.
Release date:September 6th, 2019
