Debut Album 'Sleep Of Reason' Released 5 August

Raffertie - Debut Album 'Sleep Of Reason' Released 5 August

We are proud to announce full details of the debut album from Ben Stefanski aka Raffertie, Sleep Of Reason, released 5 August - pre-order your copy now from the Ninjashop & iTunes.

The album features both the recent "Build Me Up" (watch Vincent Haycock's stunning short film below) and "Trust" feat. YADi, streaming now exclusively at Fake DIY.

Sleep Of Reason is rich, enigmatic and full of yearning, a piece that has been strongly inspired by Stefanski's childhood in a British seaside town, the faded grandeur and ageing population of which caused him to ruminate on mortality as a child.

Raffertie says of the album "Albums I listened to and connected with most when growing up, and indeed still now, were those that made me feel like I wasn't alone. That perhaps sounds quite sad, but that whole process of connection was ultimately what I felt drawing me into a lot of music. Catharsis, it seems to me, is the universal backbone of music. It's a process of coming to terms with our relative daemons".
