If you haven't already heard, Slushii has had an ominous week to say the least. The main abnormalities began when he deleted all, but one, tweet from his Twitter account, leaving fans confused until he spoke out. Slushii wrote:
Decided to rid myself of all social media on my phone because it was becoming a problem and toxic in my personal life.
I really can't put it into words, but something clicked for me recently that made me realize that I didn't need to be absorbed in this ecosystem and could actually go out and experience things and live my life.
I'm not gonna sugarcoat it. I've been really depressed lately. Don't know why.
Will update you guys when the new music is ready.
But I'm doing better now.
– love u”
Nonetheless, following the events that have transpired, Slushii released a new song on his archives account. The track was a somber tune, and I'm speculating here, but the release, titled “Sleep,” felt like a musical representation of how he had been feeling. Speaking as someone who has suffered from depression, those who undergo this feeling sometimes want to do nothing all day and sleep the entire day away. It's terrible, but the feeling can be difficult to conquer, and I can only hope that Slushii has began to beat that feeling.
Blending a melancholy melody with hip-hop drum lines, listen to “Sleep” by Slushii below while we, at EDM Sauce, continue to update you on the young electronic music star.
Slushii will be performing at quite the wide variety of festivals this season.
