Only Love has been a labor of love. The project had no corporate funding and we’re giving it away for free. We created it because we felt it should exist and you should have it.

Our ability to create and fund projects like this depends entirely on your support. We hope it inspires you the way Coldcut’s Journeys by DJ, DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing and the movie Scratch inspired us. If you appreciate it, help us support the future of DJing.

On behalf of The DJ Hookup & SLEEPER, thanks and enjoy!

About Only Love

 
2016 has been tough.

We lost Phife, Bowie & Prince.

And tensions are high.

We asked one of our favorite people, award winning DJ, SLEEPER, to create something beautiful that would bring people together. The result was Only Love.

In 2009, SLEEPER released a video of him mixing 18 songs in 10 minutes. This became the first DJ video to get 1,000,000+ views on YouTube. The project took him to MTV, ESPN, URB, the prestigious TED Conference and across the world.

When we began this Only Love, we expected a straight-forward follow up to this previous hit.

But SLEEPER had higher aspirations.

In the 7 years since the first video, sophisticated video mixing technology has emerged. SLEEPER wanted to elevate this project by seamlessly incorporating film.

The result is the birth of a new genre – The Mixfilm.

Only Love isn’t a mixtape, a performance video, a music video or a filmed routine. It’s the unique outcome of bluring the lines between these formats. It’s a new type of journey that we hope will inspire the imagination the way Coldcut’s Journeys by DJ, DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing, and the movie Scratch inspired ours. We hope it gives birth to many more mixfilms. We hope it’ll make DJs proud to call themselves DJs and inspire people to consider what’s possible with this art.

We hope you enjoy.

I’ve always tried to create things that are timeless. When people think about DJing, they think about crazy parties and festivals. With this project, I wanted to make an impact that would last beyond 1 night.

Musically, it’s a blend of genres, but visually, it’s a blend of people, because we’re all one family. I hope it gives you a moment to reflect and be grateful, regardless of what’s going on around us.

Title
The DJ Hookup Presents "Only Love" a Mixfilm by SLEEPER
Description

Only Love is a collaboration between top-rated DJ e-tailer, The DJ Hookup, and award winning DJ, SLEEPER. Only Love gives birth to a new genre, the mixfilm, which combines film, DJ performance and mixtape to take the viewer on a new kind of journey. It’s the follow up to SLEEPER's 2009 viral hit, which made him the first DJ to get over 1,000,000 view on YouTube. Only Love was born out of the losses of history-defining musicians, David Bowie, Prince and Phife Dawg. It’s a response to the divisive political climate of 2016 with something beautiful intended to bring people together.
