You know the words to their songs every time you hear them played, so much that you might even feel like you know them or have glimpsed into their closets. PillowTalk is more than a whispered chat before bed but is that groovy, soulful, electronic music band who have been gifting you songs from the heart since 2011. Born that summer in the Lower Haight District of San Francisco by members Sammy Doyle, Ryan Williams and Michael Tello, their music fuses the sounds of classic R&B, boogie and disco with underground house and indie dance.
These gentlemen are known for their hard work in the studio with releases out on Crew Love, Visionquest, Life & Death, Wolf + Lamb, Circus Company, Kompakt, Bang The Box, D-Edge, and remixes for Groove Armada, Kasper Bjork, DJ Tennis, HVOB, Laid Back, Soul Clap, W+L, Nick Monaco, Midnight Magic, Future Generations, Set Mo and Lonely Boy. With nonstop touring around the world, PillowTalk never ceases to surprise their listeners with classic edits and collaborations with artists such as: Ruede Hagelstein, DJ Tennis, Thugfucker, Deniz Kurtel, Tone Of Arc and Navid Izadi, to name a few.
Their latest singles, Love Addicted, Booty Rang and Love Train released on the new Crew Love imprint were big summer tunes in 2016. You might have seen Sammy D and Michael Tello DJ or caught the PillowTalk live show at the infamous, “Love Train” tour in Barcelona which has rocked the Sonar Festival each year.
On top of a new album which is in the works for 2017, the gentlemen also have a shared single with LowHeads entitled Black Paradise due for release in March also on Crew Love Records and a remix of How Does it Feel by the legendary group, Laid Back, coming out on Soul Clap Records this summer.
PillowTalk's music is a soundtrack to long nights as it is lazy days —there is something about each of their records that covers the span of living: sun-splashed jams, peak-time party tunes and low-lit moments of intimacy. This is music to suit all times, as that is what PillowTalk is all about.
These artists realize that some of your deepest secrets are revealed whilst pillow talking and feel lucky enough to listen in.
