Biography

Raffertie has crafted a debut album with the clearest and most fruitful of purposes; to remind the listener that they are not alone. That's something that most people to whom music is very important will recognise - we all discovered albums in our youth that spoke directly to us, or so it seemed. It's a rather noble sentiment, and one that's resulted in a stunning debut album, ... Read more in Amazon's Raffertie Store

3.0 out of 5 stars In Need Of A Voice Of His Own 11 Aug 2013
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Raffertie (aka Benjamin Stefanski) is a British producer whose debut album
bears many of the hallmarks of current cooler-than-thou electronica.
What he has delivered in these thirteen tracks, however, is a cut-and-paste
compendium which fails, to my hairy ears at least, to achieve sonic coherence.

His debts to James Blake are immediately obvious and in compositions such
as 'Rain', 'Touching', 'Window Out' and (especially) 'Black Rainbow' become
unavoidably apparent. The melancholy melodic material, fractured beats and
deconstructed vocals are almost embarrassingly derivative but Mr Stefanski's
management of his materials can rarely hold a candle to his illustrious mentor.
(Methinks he may also be more than a tad aware of the work of San Francisco
based producer Eskmo). There is skill here in abundance but little originality.

On a more generous note 'Trust', a moody duet of-sorts with Ms Yadi, is a
rather lovely invention but when faced with the interminable arpeggios of
instrumental number 'One Track Mind' and the numinous xx-lite approximations
of 'Known' any possibility of my becoming a True Believer was entirely crushed.

Mr Stefanski certainly has potential but will need to find his own voice to prosper.

At 12 clock at night trying to find music to Liston to while doing sketchbook work I had stumbled across this album by accident.
Some say that this guy has stolen the idea of James Blakes breakthrough album his self titled. I however love this style of cutting up vocals and making it seem like he is singing far away from the microphone.

The stand out track for me is Rain it gives a complete sense of mixing daughter with the lightly dense acoustic strumming mixed in the this guy's style of vocal completes into a great sexy Rnb mix that How To Dress Well couldn't make up.

For fans of James Blake, Baths and Blood Orange I would highly recommend this album to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars recommended 30 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this album. It reminds me of the XX, James Blake, Jamie Woon, Moderat ...all mixed together. The atmosfere is dark and haunting but captivating.
Only remark might be that maybe he should use guest vocalists in the future. This album would be killer with some strong voices on the tracks. But this is only a detail
If you have come as far as to reading reviews to decide whether to buy it or not: buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Music with deep sound and texture 13 Aug 2013
By Spabo
Format:Audio CD
Raffertie Sleep Of Reason is rich of dark sounds and textures with moments of full delight pleasure. His voice and sound reminds me J Blake at times but with a different take.

Raffertie sounds cross the line between disco and down beat very experimental and enjoyable.
