From their home base in New York, Sleepy & Boo have become preeminent players in the Big Apple’s dynamic dance music scene. For close to nine years, they’ve been the resident DJs and driving force behind Basic NYC, their own celebrated underground music throwdown that's been an important part of New York's nightlife spectrum. Launched in 2004, the party features Sleepy & Boo playing alongside a who’s who of the world’s most important DJs, all performing to a packed house of energetic music lovers. It’s an event that’s recognized for its diversity, with partygoers treated to a huge range of talent and sounds (everyone from Kaskade to Jeff Mills have been guests over the years). Named as New York’s “Best Dance Party 2009” by New York Magazine, Basic NYC has become an international destination for clubbers eager to catch world-class DJs in intimate spaces.
As DJs themselves, Sleepy & Boo have been featured at a huge range of events - from their own headlining "Sleepy & Boo + Friends" residency, to all the major dance music festivals, to sold-out concert shows supporting some of the world's top artists. Whether warming up for A-class superstars, or headlining an event themselves, Sleepy & Boo's musical knowledge, sophisticated taste, and dedication to energizing the dancefloor have earned them a loyal base of music-loving fans and followers.
In 2013, Sleepy & Boo began a new partnership with the revamped Marquee New York, joining the club as Friday resident DJs and programming the talent for the night. They have added a new dimension to the club by bringing in some of the world's best underground DJs, welcoming a huge array of veteran and newcomer talent to the club's Funktion One-equipped DJ booth.
