Dream Weapons present: THE GOLDEN DAWN C60



"The Golden Dawn is a mix of songs i've been listening to lately. Nothing really more complicated than that. Some of them seemed to fit together, others didn't but it made for a mix that wasn't just one long hum of similar sounds. Enjoy it for what is is, if you like a song here or there thats a bonus, if you like the whole thing, well, then we might just become friends".

Dream Weapons present: XMAS DELIGHTS VOL. V (+ I, II, III, IV) C60



or


My favorite Christmas tunes reminds why as a child the Yuletide used to be my favorite time of the year. An idealized daydream of what the festive season should be - or once was.

"The only listenable Christmas compilation…ever!" I half-jokingly added to my first volume in this series - cowardly washing my hands from responsibility while claiming my innocence (or wait that’s easter) for its questionable content. But four xmas-compilations later; it has grown to become my no. 1 genre of music! No not really - its not even a genre. But the best discoveries are usually either oldies, jazz, folk/medieval or classically oriented - sometimes combined. And I love all of that.

So a Merry Christmas to you all and I hope you enjoy our antimaterialistic gift of music!

We decided I’d might as well make a grand Xmas Delights Vol. I-V bonanza for our blog-visitors. A carefully designed and finely selected six hours of music in total to get you and your beloved ones through the holidays in one piece!


- Last year I shaped made the cover art in a 1970’s christmas card kind of style (or rather stole Ivo Caprino’s and added my own title). One for the sophisticated listener. A purely european, traditional folk/semiclassical mix. Looks joyful and childish on surface but contains about 3/4 pure melancholic beauty and only 1/4 of festive joy.


- A little all over the place - mostly fun and filled with forgotten treasures. 100% vintage coziness and nostalgic-vibes guaranteed.


- Unquestionably my all-time sloppiest cover design job... ever. Imaging two young women dressed as babies for christmas presents. Hm - but the actual songs collected are as great as-or better than ever.


- The original and first. Back then I was yet to become this genre’s connoisseur par excellence* and the beginning of the pentalogy is naturally the closest to resemble a regular collection of christmas-tunes. Containing quite a few household names and a number of actual hits. Just the good stuff though.

Dream Weapons present: EPISODES OF INSECT LIFE C90 - an NTS radio special.


A collaboration for NTS radio containing nine songs from Sadhu Sadhu (who also compiled this mix), Prabha Devi and Moahaha each. Its really Dream Weapons Present: Dream Weapons Present - but I kept the strangely apt title of the L.M Budgen-book I reworked for our cover art instead. «He filled their listening ears with wondrous things» is its subtitle - and what we aim for.

Dream Weapons present: ONE LAST DANCE C90



Here / Here

You are cordially invited to a feast for ears and feet alike - atleast compared to most of my other mixes.

Don’t know if US voters went for the warmonger or fascist-alternative just yet, but either way wintertime is most certainly here. I just learned that the first statement of the 2nd law of thermodynamics is that "heat flows spontaneously from a hot to a cold body". Unintentionally erotic-sounding laws of thermodynamics sort of sums up my primary intentions with this mix - cuz that’s what the world needs. Now get ready for one last dance around the globe.

Dream Weapons recommends: ETHERIC FOUNTAIN CHANNEL



My dear friend Tsaheylu Silene Bathyketes, has released a new album! Check it out!

- Sadhu Sadhu

NEW TAPE from ETHERIC FOUNTAIN CHANNEL on SUNROAD RECORDS(Norway) c90 limited to 100ex

A mix of newage music, loops, noises and fieldrecordings/naturesounds. The self-titeled tape from etheric fountain channel stretches over 90 minutes and has floating transitions between the songs,blurring the compositions as parts to its whole,adding a overall feeling or color despite its wide range of expressions. its a fairytale journey through undiscovered landscapes. From digging through ditches as a hedgehog to witnessing futuristic monoliths being erected from an eagle's eye. It takes you walking by a lake in thick fog, hearing portals opening and closing through the echoing waves. The music is almost entirely made of acoustic instruments and field recordings, except some keyboardnotes in there that stick out as kind of obvious. It's got dimensions of depth you don't discover in it's ocean of sound on the first listening, though it's manageable. If you work at sorting out its layers and textures -you can hope to reveal new forms of meditation and or worship. The tape is a inspired incarnated image of the dancing elementals on the threshold of our senses. A pure communication in the form of musical memory.

Dream Weapons present: THE HEARING FOREST AND THE SEEING FIELD C90

Traditional-to psychedelic folk-favorites of a gentle, mysterious beauty long lost. Twenty songs and a few instrumental interludes all recorded sometime in between the mid-60’s up to early 80’s, that may lull you into a longing for olden times - centuries before you were born.

Times that… must have been total shit if you weren’t royalty or filthy rich. And anyone that lucky were most likely some sort of tyrant. BUT let’s not dwell on short and miserable lives once lived.

I'm afraid I seem to have strayed somewhat from my original brief. But in a nutshell: art is more fun than reality. Enjoy!

Dream Weapons present: SPIRITS UNKNOWN C90


Mainly spiritual jazz - including some spirited latin and oriental fusions. Or just some jazz gems I enjoy. I also dug up eight of my favorite jazz poetry tunes (all with musical accompany) and placed them in between. I like how these spoken grooves about biblical texts, New York City, STD’s, life memories, prostitution, apocalyptic visions and the blues influences and comments its musical surroundings. This mix probably seem less random than it is because of it. And in a good way, I think. - Moahaha

"Cold Trance is a mix of ethereal electronica intertwined with barren, soundscapes meant to act as a projection for the coming winter.

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.
