I drunk messaged Falqo on Facebook in 2015 to tell him he was a legend and he was very polite in his response. My message was inspired by coming home from a night out and listening to Sleepy Crusader over and over and dancing in my kitchen on my own.
Falqo doesn’t have a huge amount of music out in the world but it is consistently incredible. Sleepy Crusader is still one of my favourites. It’s pure disco wizardry with some slick vocals. There are so many levels in the song that come together to make it impossible not to dance to. There are spacy keys and the bass is running all over the place. It’s worth listening with decent headphones to hear how the track fills the space.
I could probably write a blog entry for every Falqo song, but this is the particular track that has the biggest personal link. Sometimes when I sit down to write about a song I get in my head about it and talk myself out of writing a post. Sleepy Crusader was the opposite. I’ve listened to it so many times and every time I become more sure that this is one of my favourite songs of all time.
