With his sizable history on labels like Fat City and Tectonic, Illum Sphere makes the leap to Ninja Tune with this esoteric concoction of slow house thud and starry-eyed melodics. "Sleeprunner" features all of the producer's strongest characteristics, from warm and immersive basslines to emotive strings, but all realised through a decidedly unconventional framework befitting of the reputation he has made for himself. Zed Bias meanwhile creates an equally housey version of the track that lays on some rigid claps, cheeky sub bass and fluttering arpeggios in a distinctly summery style. Clearly feeling doubly inspired from his first go at the track, Illum Sphere comes back around for a "re-run" of "Sleeprunner" that turns the track into a slow-release techno peppered with undulating acid lines and rugged drums.
