Sleepwalkrs drops VIP Remix of ‘More Than Words’
Sleepwalkrs has unveiled a ‘VIP Remix’ of ‘More Than Words’, his smash collaborative single with MNEK, out now.
Combining punchy kick drums, euphoric rave sirens and a behemoth drop, the ‘VIP Remix’ of ‘More Than Words’ transforms the melodic original to a stripped-back club version, highlighting the wide range of Sleepwalkrs’ production style. It marks the second transformation of the single, following on from Ferreck Dawn’s tech house cut released earlier this month.
An instant hit, the track has already amassed over 3.5 million streams since its October release, alongside being named Billy Da Kid’s ‘Track Of The Week’ on Kiss FM and securing the coveted playlist spot on Channel 4’s ‘Sunday Brunch’.
More recently Sleepwalkrs and MNEK dropped two official videos to accompany the track. The first, shot by Mike Baldwin (NOTD, Royksopp and Take That), centres around a performance by a deaf & hearing impaired dance troupe, while the second is a behind-the-scenes that focuses on the performers themselves and also features an interview with choreographer Chris Fonseca.
Real name Roberto Manfredi, Sleepwalkrs made a big impression last year when he joined his old friend THRDL!FE for ‘Outta My Head’, a single that garnered BBC Radio 1 airplay from Scott Mills and has since amassed 7.5 million Spotify streams. More recently he linked up with French artist HUGEL on ‘Magnify’, an acclaimed single that made it onto the Kiss ‘Dance’ and BBC Radio 1 ‘Party Anthems’ playlists, as well as being remixed by Mike Mago and Sammy Porter. Continuing his ascent through the ranks, Sleepwalkrs’ music has received further heavyweight support from the likes of Oliver Heldens, Hardwell, Cassius and Don Diablo.
Grammy award winning South Londoner MNEK has worked alongside some of the biggest names in the industry, collaborating with the likes of Zara Larson, Stormzy, Jax Jones and Gorgon City, and writing with international stars such as Beyoncé, Little Mix, Dua Lipa, Christina Aguilera, Mabel, Anne Marie, Selena Gomez, The Saturdays and Clean Bandit. His back catalogue includes a number of worldwide hits including ‘Ready For Your Love’, ‘Never Forget You’, and ‘Blinded By Your Grace’. Most recently, his hit with Joel Corry, ‘Head & Heart’, has become a global success, topping the charts in a number of countries and marking his first UK #1 single.
