Dream weapons present: GHOSTIN THROUGH NEITHERLANDS C90



or



Not sure this title sits well with any native speaker of english but it makes sense to me. A ghost story of the sort that might have given you a good scare as a child, but maybe not so much if revisited as a grown up. It won't give you nightmares anymore but the dense, haunting atmosphere is still present. Childhood memories both from experience and fiction when magic and the supernatural felt just as real as reality – you know a little like that Stranger Things-series.

Dream weapons present: SOUNDSTORMS C90



or



Although you can't tell by listening to my mixtapes shared here so far, I've always loved heavy, hypnotic riffs and pounding percussion - but it seems every kraut-or spacerock obscurity of the golden era is already dug up, ressurected and compiled to death. Which is why it was more inspirational to present some fuzzed & far out cosmic rock from the last couple of decades instead. A lot more fun for both me and you. Sixteen more or less contemporary bands mostly (but not all) sounding much like they're some long lost and overlooked 70's discovery - but why hold that against them as long as the ideas and tunes are groovy and fresh?

Dream weapons present: DISTANT DRUMS C90



or


I originally shared an almost identical version of this last summer, but guessing its new to most visitors here.

Distant Drums is my attempt at compiling an exotica or rather just an exotic-sounding mix - or maybe a few tunes here simply remind me of the sun and the ocean. Anyway I decided not to allow myself to include any of the usual suspects - and leaving out any favorites discovered on Flash Straps (highly recommended blog!) many rips and mixes. I almost succeeded on both accounts. I've loved the sound of this criminally underrated genre ever since I got Martin Denny's A Taste of Honey for free at a flea market a little over 20 years ago (hardly exotica and far from being among his best, but it did the trick). So here's a light, gentle and deliciously inauthentic 90-minute tour around everywhere in the world westerners consider east or south.

Dream weapons present: DEAD BUT DREAMING C90



or




Its only occasionally as gloomy as the title and cover suggests. I just like the sound and looks of it.

-Picture yourself floating in some sort of limbo whilst semi-consciously drifting in and out of dreams. Some of them pleasant and beautiful while others eerie and dark but every time you you're about to grasp what its all about, the scenery changes. Perhaps forces of good and evil are fighting for your soul to keep. I don't know I've never been dead – and I don't have a soul. Far out! - but almost gentle enough to qualify as a relaxation tape.

Do yourself a favour and listen all the way through or else you'll miss out on Mal Waldron's stunning farewell.

Dream weapons present: PÉROLAS BARROCAS C90



or


And now for something completely different, its: The Best Baroque Mixtape In The World...Ever!*

Pérola Barrocas means irregular pearls – which is the original meaning behind the term Baroque. I skipped the obvious genius of the era Bach (+ Handel...and Purcell), focusing rather heavily on the «early music» sounds of the harpsichord, harp, strings, gloomy organ and quite a lot of viola da gamba-drones. Some songs and dances, a few furiously dynamic orchestral assaults but the allegros are largely outnumbered by the adagios.

Psychomagik is a compilation of songs from various walks of life. Intended as nothing more than auditory pleasure and a travelogue around the world taking in the sights and sounds of elusive caves and temples. It's not dark as much as an uplifting melancholy which fits nicely under the umbrella of the occult or the hidden. A paradise of hidden delights.

Dream Weapons present: CULT WORSHIP SONGS C60


"The latest mix from Prabha Devi is a slower, more introverted mix. A collection of songs you can enjoy in private meditation but not really suited for being the soundtrack of a party unless its a valium or LSD affair. It's listening music for the loner, tonic for the vagabond, or companion songs for those on long train rides. Imagine sitting in a field with Ye-Ho-Wah disciples running around in white garments in the sunlight. This would be the soundtrack"

Dream Weapons present: ORIENT-TNEIRO c90



West mirroring east - east mirroring west

- with musical influences going back and fourth featuring artist from both «worlds». There's an oriental jazz-vibe throughout but I've included everything from psychedelic ragarock-fusion or whatever-to slow 'n sensuous bellydance grooves. Unlike an Exotica-album your inner imagined landscapes won't be of the sea or the jungle, but the desert and the savannah.

"Kasbah Ghosts is a slow-moving meditation that rises and falls like an inland lake, at times one for pondering, at times one for slipping into a cheery flashback of opiates or laudanum.

My main man Kyle (Crystal Stilts/Woods/Get The People/Meatus Murder/The Ladybug Transistor/The Soft City/I Was A King/ etc etc etc) all around sweet guy whom I've have had the pleasure to share stage with a couple of times and sorted me out when I was a lost soul running around the streets of NY not knowing where I was, is finally releasing his debut solo album the 20th of this month and it makes me excited. Check it out!


If you are in the NY area you can catch the release the 18th here
And if you can't make it to the show, you could always pre-order the album here and get your hands on the limited vinyl edition. (250 copies)

Dream Weapons present: THE EXECUTIONER'S SONG c90


...and the road leads to nowhereis the first line sung in «Blow Your Brains Out», the opening song. But after a handful of seductive folk/pop-tunes followed closely by various southeast-asian grooves and the likes, overlapped by some avant-weirdness & doom-laden baroque - this road has actually lead you to the guillotine (dripping with the memories of the people it had seen) of The Excecutioner's Song

I think of this mix like a road movie in music – a road-horror movie perhaps. Open, adventurous, dreamlike and surreal for the first parts of the trip but true to the genre it takes a darker turn and ends in (bloody) tragedy.

Dream Weapons Present: FUTURA PRIMITIVA c90



I thought this would end up as the less pretentious pulp-version of Antropocen (a former mix of mine). But aside from the coverart and my approach to writing this text, the actual music itself is most definitely in the same ballpark. These ninety minutes are equally packed with analogue electronics served on a bed of drum machines occasionally spiced up with a few minimalist tunes and soundscapes - among other things.

Dream Weapons Present: MURDEROUS GROOVES c120


Jazz can be and mean a great many different things - spiritual, intellectual, political, relaxing, painful... you name it. Its also potentially full of suspense, tension, action and horror which is why jazz has been used to a great extent in film noir, thrillers, crime, giallo, cop-movies to name a few genres. I don't know why film-makers abandoned the perfect soundpalette to go along with moving images in favour of pompous orchestral scores and seemingly random pop-songs, but I know that they shouldn't have.

There's much greatness hidden in mostly obscure soundtracks and even more obscure production/library records - and from countless hours of excellence I've compiled 2x60 minutes of tunes in all kinds of moods, approaches and genres really, but still pretty much jazz in one way or another.

Reups

Mediafire has started to act up, so some of our mixes haven't been available for download lately. I've reuploaded the ones currently having issues and fixed the links in the original posts and the archive. We'll probably have to move everything from mediafire to something else at one point, but I still haven't found a good substitute. (zippyshare doesn't support https and mega has no stats etc etc, so suggestions for good hosts are welcome!)

New links:
MORNING DEW C90
EASTERN EMBROIDERIES C120 
MARTIAN SURGERY DERVISHES C90
ANTROPOCEN C90 
ANTISEPTICALLY CLEAN C90 
ELEPHANT HOTEL C60

Let us know if you have problems with other links, and we'll get on it asap.

All the best,

https://www.mediafire.com/download/4l3c0ssdsy70b4a/FILLING_THE_INFINITE_BETWEEN_TWO_SOULS_C120_DRMWPN21.zip

"Ajay Saggar has been immersed in music since he was a baby. His Indian parents filled the house with Bollywood soundtracks from the 50s,60s and 70s. On moving to England in 1976 at the age of 11, Ajay was spoon fed punk rock by John Peel through his nightly radio show. He started buying records shortly afterwards and has never stopped. His musical palette has expanded vastly since then and music was and is his life.

He plays in the bands KING CHAMPION SOUNDS, and DEUTSCHE ASHRAM. He has worked as a sound engineer for bands like My Bloody Valentine, Dinosaur Jr., Mogwai, Sleater-Kinney, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Aerial M, Mum, The For Carnation, Sebadoh, etc etc. Currently employed at the Paradiso in Amsterdam, music is everywhere!"

https://www.mediafire.com/download/r43rk33s2dueypr/HANUMAN%27S_FIRE_TORCH_C60_DRM019.zip

"Ravana tried to murder the captured Hanuman by setting him on fire with a fire-torch, dressed in Royal Siamese apparel. This mix is named after the incident, but any further resemblance stops here. It's basically a short journey through Jazz, World Music, Voodoo Tunes, French Soundtracks and the odd Gospel song thrown in to confuse and coerce the listener into just relaxing for a moment and giving in.

Nothing is to be gained, but hopefully nothing will be lost either."

Dream Weapons present: EASTERN EMBROIDERIES C120



 Eastern Embroideries c120

Ever since my childhood I've had an affinity for a certain timbre that could mainly be found in the music from behind the Iron Curtain and in the regions of the former Sovietunion. Politics and troublesome history aside, wether it was armenian tetrachords, persian shashmaqam-modes from the central asian regions, klezmer, balkan or gypsy tunes– somehow it always reminded me of fairy tales.

I compiled 120 minutes in two parts or 2 x c60. If these parts were character types or beings Out of the Village would be the extrovert and Into the Forest the introvert. But music and emotions are more complex than that so you'll find melancholy and joy simultaneously in both the village and the forest.

Dream Weapons present: MORNING DEW C90

https://mega.nz/#!I1FxwT6Z!mM5URlIUy6aIqbASWrYLzvvcGCCfMfSJwahpeSSyKW8
Morning Dew c90

Although the title itself is nicked from Tony Hatch and Jackie Trents cover version of Bonnie Dobson's apocalyptic anti-nuclear protest song, I figured it was time for some pleasantly organic and good-natured music. In short I've compiled a collection of jazzed & psyched up «world folk». The challenge (or fun really) is mixing andalusian classical piano, baroque pop, medieval dancetunes, argentinian folklore and everything in between - while trying to maintain a natural flow. There's plenty of melancholy and dark moods but practically every second out of these ninety minutes are full of comforting warmth and beauty. Atleast according to me they are.

Dream Weapons present: ANTROPOCEN C90

https://www.mediafire.com/download/r2g87bdo1ooxaz0/ANTROPOCEN_C90_DRM014.zip

The Anthropocene (same thing... in english) is a proposed epoch that begins when human activities started to have a significant global impact on Earth's geology and ecosystems. The name is a prop combination of anthropo- meaning "human" and -cene meaning «new».

Translating our present era into music is apparently the sound of cinematographic moods and static grooves - featuring new/cold & no wave, soulful drum machines, avantgarde oldies, vintage electronics and electroacoustic delights (and most certainly not the gentle psych-folk my cover art suggests)... at its catchiest! Join inn to rejoice in the wondrous and mourn the terrible ways of mankind at the end of Antropocen.

Dream Weapons present: ANTISEPTICALLY CLEAN C90 by Dave W

https://www.mediafire.com/download/bg27y762guuzqlx/ANTISEPTICALLY_CLEAN_C90_DRMWPN_010.zip

This guestmix was made by Dave from the New York space-rockers White Hills. A regular face on the touring routes all over the world, he has amassed an impressive record collection over the years and is treating us to a peek inside his head

"From the time I was in high school I've always cherished making cassette mixes for friends. It was a way to turn friends on to music I'm into, and create something special and meaningful for them. When Dream Weapons asked if I'd be interested in putting a mix together for them, it was a no brainer,  With this mix I present to the listener a C90 look into my record collection. Most of the tracks I  digitized myself. Some of the names may be familiar (i.e. James T. Pursey otherwise known as Jimmy Pursey from Sham69 and Brian Brain aka Martin Atkins from PiL) but seen in a different light from the work they are known for. Hopefully there's a track or two you've never heard before in which  turns you on to a new artist and causes you to seek out their output in a way that supports their art. In the end that is the point of these things, isn't it? So, sit back and enjoy the ebb and flow…"
