It has been two years since we have seen the introduction of the SLEEP-OVER brand with their first video. Since then a lot has changed, from the crew to the clothes and the vibe in general. Were the first video was sexy, to say the least, this one is strictly about the skating or as the founder Fatos Veseli said “I wanted this one to be for the skaters, the people that backed the brand”.
IN 2020 Fatos has taken the reigns and has pulled the brand closer to his own person. “At the start, I was wearing hoody’s, T-shirts and tighter pants but I was dreaming of the South of France. Driving along the coast in a cabriolet car. We needed and wanted to make those clothes to connect to our base but I wanted to evolve and project the brand to where I feel I want to be. Now we have gotten to a place where the designs and the cuts are our own. That means a lot.”
There is no denying that this brand is being propelled forward by hard work and love for what SLEEP-OVER means to the people working on it. Pascal Kurth & Gabriel Dimming worked on the video up to the moment the beamer projected the light onto the silver screen. “They have been the motor behind this video, not me. I want them to have their day in the sun, to shine for a moment, because they put it all into the video.” Fatos told me.
For people that have seen the brand grow, it has been quite the journey, but for the people in the know, it hasn’t been a surprise that the changes have worked. Their newest collection is being worn by both men and women alike. So cheers, to SLEEP-OVER and the hard work behind it, because that is the foundation of any successful brand.
Damn, that is # 3 already? Yes. Our third Converse “Push Berlin” session earlier this year went down successfully and we can’t wait to reopen the doors of YAAM next Tuesday. Here is what went down, who was there and what you have missed out on:
Together with Converse, we are proudly hosting a session for everyone to join on the 03.03 (Tuesday) at YAAM Berlin, after Give Something Back To Berlin took over the park, build by Yamato Living Ramps.

Starting something completely on your own, at one point in your life, is a natural step for someone motivated and creative. Fatos Veseli is not a new guy to the German skateboarding scene and definitely one of the most shining characters from the city of Cologne. The city with the Dom is quite sexy, we have to admit; definitely not because of the architecture (the city got bombed to a high percentage during WW2) but more of its people. If you have ever been to Cologne you know what we are talking about, it is almost like you can touch the harmony that is in the air.
Fatos is using Sleep-Over as his very own creative outlet and all of his friends are down with that and support his vision, that’s something you can clearly see in this first ever brand video featuring guys like Kalle Wiehn, Kevin Vietzke, Norman Wirtz, Daniel Giesecke and quite a lot of more new faces. The girls you see on the video are all good friends of the guys above, big Thank you to Anke, Charly, Mareike, Maureen,Meagan and Sophie.

The Sleep-Over X Robotron Skateboards collaboration is now available HERE.
Robotron has had a great year! They turned ten, multiple team riders have put out parts this year and Carsten “Barney” Beneker has been ripping extra hard since he hit that three-oh, so the bot chose to tour around Bella Italia this year.
Unfortunately not everybody could come but that left some extra room for some people that we don’t see skate that often. And with some people, we mean Julian Ruhe that sly guy truly sprinkled some style onto the pizza di-robo. Don’t waste any more time and click play.
Also featuring: Niklas Speer von Cappeln, Fatos Veseli, Kalle Wiehn, Jan Hoffmann & Dennis Behrens.

Intro: Philipp Jadke

Jan got his shirt, the board of course and a first video premiere, surrounded by all his loved ones. All Photos by Friedjof Feye. Make sure to come back at 6pm ;).

Neben vielen großartigen Tricks, die in Trier oder Umgebung gestanden wurden und Bildern, die manch einen in frühere Lebensabschnitte versetzten, erwarten den Zuschauer persönliche Statements von Wissenschaftlern, Bürgern und Skatern zur Szene und ihrer Entwicklung.
Nehmt euch die Zeit und geniesst diese wirklich sehenswerte Dokumentation, in der Leute wie Mvf, Pat Lindenberger, Alex Mizurov, Fatos Veseli, Pascal Reif, Nob Szombati, Alessandro Magnani, Willow und weitere drin vorkommen. Gute Arbeit.
