Erich Inuri A great album sets itself apart by transporting the listener to another place. This album does that many times and wraps you up in a blanket of peace and warmth. It's also amazing at inducing sleep. Favorite track: Sover.

Andrea Martignano This compilation is absolutely marvellous, relaxing and still engaging, emotional. My favorite track is "Alla Sera" by Emanuele Errante, it sounds as a spacey Mahler adagio evolving and reverberating along its deep pizzicatos. Incredible. Thank you! Favorite track: Alla Sera.

Lost Tribe Sound Quite the collection of artists, all highly adept at putting me to sleep (a good thing in this context). Another solid entry from Whitelabrecs.

Niall Holohan What a great way to start 2020 Whitelabrecs. Beautiful compilation from start to finish, and just what I needed to start my day 😊 Favorite track: Aurora (Luna Version).

about

Sleeplaboratory is a compilation series that we launched in 2019 and the success of this effectively launched our printed gatefold-LP style CDrs which featured all of last year. The Sleeplaboratory1/.0 compilation was created as a special celebration for our fiftieth release and we enjoyed the concept so much, that we decided to run another one. Sleeplaboratory2.0 continues the themes of sleep, rest and personal reflection, not necessarily aiming to meet the current trend of mindfulness and well-being but instead, it intends to rest the listener in a way that is appropriate to them.

The idea was originally came about after our label owner Harry and his wife had a baby daughter, Isla. Harry curated a full-length compilation to help soothe his daughter to sleep and whilst Isla hasn’t needed much of a helping hand where sleep is concerned, he was keen to continue this project as a series. Throughout much of last year, we have been working on a follow-up, inviting artists to meet this sleepy brief of minimalist Ambient tones. We’ve invited familiar label artists back as well as established names and perhaps you’ll see that the odd one or two go on to have releases with us later this year.

Over the 16 tracks, a serene and enveloping environment is established. The physical product is as usual presented across four printed panels and this time, artwork is provided by Harry’s wife Beth in an image taken on a family day out. As usual, we will not make any recommendation on how our listeners might best enjoy this record and so it’s down to you to choose the best environment to listen, whether this be late at night with headphones, on a loud system or perhaps played through Bluetooth speakers in and around your home.
