Shuteye is award-winning singer-songwriter Elysia Hang-fu and veteran DJ/Producer Alena Ratner. Before finding one another both artists spent several years writing music and lyrics of their own. So by the time they met in 2010 they had a massive amount of unused material. After meeting each other they realized they were each other’s missing piece. They blended their art into a unique electronic sound that became Shuteye. This Chicago duo brings their own sound that truly is emotionally electrifying! Shuteye has shared the stage with artists such as Ladyhawke, The Deertracks, Peaches, JD Samson & Toro Y Moi. In May Shuteye won the Monster Diesel VEKTR Headphones Contest which got their song “Heats And Stones” converted to a 3D track. The track was featured in displays around the world! The band was recently voted Runner Up for “Best New Band” in the Chicago Reader’s “Best of Chicago 2012.” They debuted their first EP Sun Night Sky in 2011 which is a off their brand new album Hush Hush that just released last week. Take a listen for yourself!
