Frankfurt hailing German producer Shuko recently dropped his Sleepless album – a 16 track instrumental project filled with optimism and hope. Having produced elsewhere for the likes of Talib Kweli and Lil Wayne, he set the bar fairly high for his own musical presence – but with here he rises to the challenge and comes out winning.

Each track on Sleepless tells a story, drawing on a spectrum of electronic and soulful influences to produce a rich album full of twists and turns; in one moment highlighting the struggle over a reggae beat [“Hustle On And On”], then uuplifting you over an old school smooth beat [“You Can Make It”].

Available to buy on BandCamp, stream the full album below and also check out his video for “The House.”
