Andrea Ferlin

DJ and producer Andrea Ferlin is one of the founders of SLEEP IS COMMERCIAL. It was in 2008
that Andrea, alongside Francesco Assenza, brought the label to life with the release of tracks as
duo Dunkle Dummies and with the launch of the now legendary SLEEP IS COMMERCIAL nights.
While moving to Berlin and establishing SLEEP IS COMMERCIAL represent the latest chapter in
Andreas decade long career, his impressive and extensive background in electronic music have
made him a familiar name on the international club circuit. Equally as prolific in the studio as
playing live, in between sharing line ups with techno legends like Richie Hawtin and Marco Carola
or regular guest appearances at Circoloca @DC-10 in Ibiza, Andrea found time to craft his
production skills and has released his own material since 2006 on groundbreaking labels Freak
n'Chic, Mindshake and Leftroom.
These days, with SLEEP IS COMMERCIAL and Berlin, Andrea is part of two unique communities,
one specific and the other general, both dedicated to moving electronic music ever forward. And
in Berlin Andrea has really discovered and shaped his sound, producing a signature apparent in
all his tracks and performances, something seeming to sway effortlessly between the beat
machine and the snake charmer.
Look for patterns within the over ten year career of Andrea, a strong theme emerges in his
commitment to artistic collaboration. Indeed, Andrea's earliest successes were in partnership with
Dusty Kid between 2002 and 2006. Together, as Duoteque, they released 5 records for the
German label Boxer Sport and appeared on compilations from Minus, Systematic and Crosstown
Rebels.
More accolades followed for his next partnership with Matteo Spedicati. The 2007 and 2008
working with Matteo as “Clarissa Haze Duo” Andrea found an astonishingly different angle to
create electronic tracks from inside his own music. Today, in many ways SLEEP IS
COMMERCIAL offers Andrea the oppertunity to transform his professional attitude towards
artistic collaboration into a way of life.
Whether in the studio, party, or living room he shares the decks with friends, DJs, newcomers
whom inspire him towards constant new projects and experiments.In 2010 he joined forces with
Daniele Papini to release the “Club Mio” EP, and teamed up with new talent, Sardinian DJ Alessio
Mereu releasing 3 acclaimed EPs on SLEEP IS COMMERCIAL as DUM.
2011 saw the DUM tour travel across Europe showcasing their music flavor as well as the return
of some past collaborations; Dunkle Dummies and Clarissa Hazel Duo. To top off this year
Andrea released his new solo project, Sunny Charles, on SLEEP IS COMMERCIAL.
In 2013, toghether with his friend Donald Mezmercic he started a new project called Fedon, they
released the first vinyl called Modern Mantras, and then after couple of months they released the
album on CD called Modern Mantras as well.
In 2014 with the remix of Ion Ludwig, Andrea released his latest EP called Almost. A new album,
singles and some remixes will be coming during the year.
