With Minutes of Sleep, Francis Harris has crafted a true masterpiece. Born from the heartbreaking death of his mother, Minutes Of Sleep is full of melancholic beauty and reflection. Buried in it’s depths are field recordings, collected during the last few weeks of his mothers life, which convey, in his words, “the dirt and noise of existence”. Although the album’s basis is a sad and mournful subject, grace and beauty still shine through. Francis has managed to craft a sound that is entirely his own, a heartfelt and mesmerizing version of house and techno.
