Friends of Friends Signs Different Sleep, Readies Debut EP; Listen to a Track Now
The Friends of Friends label has established itself as a solid outpost for various melodically textured and beat-oriented sounds over the past few years, and now, the LA-based imprint has added a new act to its roster, Different Sleep. Not much is known about the San Diego-raised, Chicago-based producer born Rafa Alvarez, but Friends of Friends will be issuing his debut EP, Conflict, on April 22. The complete tracklist hasn't been shared just yet, but the record's artwork is below, along with a stream of swirling EP cut "Damage," a song which purportedly "explores the pain and discomfort caused by a broken relationship and the subsequent sorrow that unfolds."
