Sleep No More is the first studio album by American hip hop producer DJ Signify. It was released on Lex Records on April 20, 2004. The album peaked at number 86 on the CMJ Top 200 chart.

DJ Signify offers the Form with a variant, aggressive lyrics with a depressive often realistic nature that nevertheless may sound familiar to whoever lives in such a social context. Common situations yet cruel, intriguing, prosaically violent, bleakly sad or furiously anguished that bring enough drama to bring the emotional context, rather than the funkyness festivity or the delirious gangster obsession for money, women, drugs and delinquency. Instead of using this as a chance to push themselves and try new and daring things, Sleep No More basically comes off like a regular Buck 65 album with a more hellish overtone as opposed to his occasional fun side. But, then again, I did have pretty high expectations so those Lex Records fans unfamiliar with Buck’s work will fall immediately in love with this.

Should there be a tone that defines hip-hop, that must be aggression-drama, if not "funkyness", perhaps the two are intimately correlated to work together.Two sides of the coin for a genre that pretty much sums the life of a great portion of the working class, not just in America, but the world. It is a language that revolves around both the outcast, the survivalist and the Middle middle class, both crossing upwards and inwards the red thin line towards misery, always playing the mortadel in the sandwich from free market. There is a similarity with punk and garage rock in that same context of appreciation, although completely different in Form and content, there is the aggression ingredient present in each and a clearly method of expression for that portion of the social pyramid and their discomptent, for either their dreams, or their nightmares.DJ Signify offers the Form with a variant, aggressive lyrics with a depressive often realistic nature that nevertheless may sound familiar to whoever lives in such a social context. Common situations yet cruel, intriguing, prosaically violent, bleakly sad or furiously anguished that bring enough drama to bring the emotional context, rather than the funkyness festivity or the delirious gangster obsession for money, women, drugs and delinquency. How often "rappers" appears to be even more systemic and fanatically alienated for the offerings that brings the system they apparently despise. "Sleep No more" is in that way is a different work that defines a world going straight to hell in the sum of many particularly lyrical stories narrated with the violent narrative of the suburbs yet preserving the distinctively poetic aspect that makes it more than a simple anecdote and more like an animated drama with a minimal soundtrack. That of hip hop with a way darker tone, one that appeals to hopelessness and entrapment, doped and decayed, with Detroit like ghost towns, or obscure allies, people gathered to catch some warm burning tires while in a snowfall or the closure of odd and ugly apartments without windows where not even the telly bring a scent of light.This is dark, not in a romantically or idealistic artsy shit, this the real life, the sharp edge where many walk their lives and make it a song or an album out of it. A requiem for a world that preaches happiness as a creed that has no real scenario to develop other than movies and propaganda. Musically, we may relate this style with a part of trip hop with a predilection towards dark atmospheres, circumvented by strong beats and sparse spooky instrumentation, very well elaborated rhymes that find a special disposition towards a poetic declamac. Bits of Dark ambience may be perceived to create the momentum for the lyrics to bring the stormy apparition. Certainly akin with the sinister and the gloomy, and not for everybody as this not intended to bring a party out of it, rather more conscious than fictional. Rhythms are solid and progressions are well elaborated suscintly mixing the electronic elements with the instrumental part. It's an album that moves you, point to the soul rather than the body even if the two may be linked by the rhythms provided, lyrics and atmosphere are too dramatic as reality sneaks around. Apocalyptic in a way. In my opinion this is an hyper realistic trip-hop, bits of Illbient and dark ambience work with moments of well elaborated cinematic, part of an horror soundtrack for the working class of today's world and a modern requien, still unsure if destined for mankind or our Western civilization.
