Sleepfields is a four-track musical atmospheric piece released under AUTUMNIST's former name ABUSE. This EP is profiling his music further deep into an atmospheric field of dreamy soundtrack-ish melodies.

It has been previously published as a self-made CD packed into cardboard sleeve and limited to only 300 numbered copies. Now, on the occasion of its 10th anniversary, it's for free download together with 3 stuning remixes. Enjoy it!

“... music with perfect scenic proportions... ”
Michal Nanoru / iMUSIQ (music magazine, czech republic, 2002)

“... the most pleasant surprise of 2002. We really look forward to the first official long-play album...”
Peter Kolarik / 3/4 Revue (cross–culture magazine, slovak republic, 2003)

“... If I can compare Sleepfields EP to something, then definitely to Autechre during the period of the Anvil Vapre breakthrough EP. At first listen it has the same hard shell, but beneath the surface you find plenty of musically expressed emotions...”
Martin Zoul / Freemusic.cz (music webzine, czech republic, 2002)

“... these tracks can really take you somewhere if not permanently, for quite some time. They can lull you, but your sleep will be restless. They can sooth you without sacrificing tension. They can terrify you but you won‘t know what you fear. Sleepfields EP evokes emotions - it relaxes and disconcerts simultaneously...”
Radim Bartik / Shadowbox.cz (music webzine, czech republic, 2002)

“... first rate music that blends a spiritual dimension with a sence of humour...”
Martina Skupa / Navigator (lifestyle magazine, slovak republic, 2003)

A hypnotic blend of up-to-date electronica with genre crossing as its manifest. In its wide-spectral electronic mix AUTUMNIST (formerly ABUSE) combines ambient with soundwalls of breakbeat and hip-hop beats, hi-tech courses with lo-fi pop, bizzare movie-like atmospheres with extraterrestrial folklore. ... more
