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, Frivolous, 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.
Galen founded Sunset Sound System with the idea of providing free, outdoor picnic-style parties where people could commune and dance while watching the sun set behind the San Francisco skyline. Word spread quickly, and what began as a few friends with speakers and a generator turned into festivities of over 1,000 people within the first year.  Today, Sunset Sound System is on the move, boasting big-name talent for their international boat parties, festival-style campouts and famed park gatherings.

The early Sunset events served as Galen's creative outlet and a prime platform to perfect his technique. DJing meant extensive knowledge of music history, hard-earned vinyl collections, and truly intuitive mixing. Inspired by the psychedelic climate of the 90's San Francisco music scene Galen successfully grew himself into a household name that he maintains today, holding it down with the world's top talent. His sets are thoughtful, yet never pre-planned, with artfully-timed track selections that spark any dance floor he touches, appealing to the old school just as much as the new.

Creative fusion with Claude VonStroke led to a killer remix of '80s breakbeat classic "Jam On It," and a mutual profound love for pizza inspired him and Justin Martin to co-produce Dirtybird classics, "Dust Devil" and "Tumbleweed."   Soon after, he landed a coveted feature spot on Annie Nightingale's Radio 1 Show where he impressed BBC listeners with his smooth mixing style. Most recently, Galen's Sunset remix of "I Feel Love" by Get Physical charmer, Lopazz, catapulted to #1 on his Beatport chart.

The summer of 2013 opened European doors with a breakthrough appearance at Dirtybird's Ibiza residency. At Croatia's Garden Festival, Galen shined on the Sunset Sound System Boat Party alongside Justin Martin, Eats Everything, and Solar. His new track, "ICANCU" has just been released on the Dirtybird BBQ Compilation and another "Your Own Style" is to coming out soon on Smoke N' Mirrors. 2014 also brings the boys of Sunset Sound System back to Croatia for another Garden Festival Boat Party among other European dates.
