20ft Radio & Dream Weapons present: CURTAIN CALL C60

Our third mix for 20ft Radio is a murder mystery thriller-horror movie (with lots of nudity)-soundtrack. An overload of dark grooves and stunning melodies like in those classic 70’s giallo-films. This mix is partly made from nicking killer tunes from largely forgotten B-movies - in combination with some library music-favourites + a couple of cinematographic songs that just seemed to fit in perfectly. Enjoy!

2 Franco Micalizzi - Tema di Albert
3 Pierre Vassiliu - Generique Debut (inedit)
4 Giorgio Gaslini - Sdenka's Theme

14 André Previn - Executive Party
15 Giuliano Sorgini - Cattura
16 Fabio Frizzi - Luca il contrabbandiere - Seq. 11

Dream Weapons present: OFF TO SEE THE WIZARD C90

After a short interlude wandering the lonely streets at night we follow the yellow brick road from the summer of love to Altamont and the Manson Family… A slight exaggeration of contrasting opposites there. I could have just informed you that the mix mostly contains warm and loving hippieish-stuff, but there’s both lightly naive and darker-tinged tunes to be found. That would be boring though. How about: a psychedelic trip down memory lane the way nobody remembers it - complied by someone who wasn’t there.


1 New Life - Empty Streets
2 West Coast Workshop - The Dowser And The Thaumaturgi
3 Sabu Martinez - Wounded Knee
4 Foreningen Til Livets Beskyttelse - Fuldmane
5 The Holy Mackerel - Listen to the Voice
6 Jorge Reyes - En el Fondo del Barranco.. Pt. 2
7 John Phillips - The Bird With The Plastic Feathers
8 Vestenvinden - Byen - Del 1
9 Charles Bernstein/Jerry Whitman - Turn Around (Vocal)
10 Vindharpen - Asteroide
11 China Clark and Amirh Bahati - Sunshine & Warmth
12 Rainbow Generator - City Of The Sun
13 Children Of One - Spheres

14 Pugh Rogefeldt - Sail With Me, Come On And Try - I Love You
15 Toubabou - Youvalou Rada (La Nature en Personne)
16 Fishbaugh, Fishbaugh & Zorn - The Best of Times
17 Sky Sulamyth - Caribou Flight
18 Unspoken Word - Morning
19 Jeremy Rothenberg - The Killer (Cherokee Indian)
20 Stenio Mendes - Taquará
21 Bazaar - Harmandali Zeybek
21 Emil Richards and the Factory - No Place I'd Rather Be
23 Thomas Almqvist - Mot Natten
24 Ace of Cups - Afro Blue
25 Brother Ah - Visions


-The aquatint on the cover is «Offering of the Mandan Indians» - plate 14 from Karl Bodmer’s Travels in America.

Dream weapons present: ROCK ME TO SLEEP C90

Built around the ultimate song of despair in the history of mankind (O Death…), these ninety minutes of lamentable lullabies, haunting ballads and melancholic folktunes sort of made itself (well, the four hour long version did). I think I've put together a thing of great beauty and mystery - which I hope you’ll find uplifting rather than depressing. Besides its not as dark or gloomy as I make it out to be. If you were actually rocked to sleep while listening I’m sure your dreams would be mostly pleasant and only slightly eerie.

Dream Weapons present: SPACE PORTAL C90

Space Portal is in essence a Jazz-mix. It breaks its borders a touch but stays within the same overall vibe of "put it on and do other things around the house", or "sit on a ferry and watch the ocean whilst listening". Either way, its a meditative, energetic, slow, twisting, fading, rising mix of live recordings and studio recordings. Sit back, relax.

Dream Weapons present: TANTRIC MIRROR C60

While Prabha Devi is drinking fancy cocktails (or more likely, Old Munk & 7up) under a palm somewhere in India, I'm stuck up north in what seems like an endless winter. I have no idea if you can tell by listening to this though. Tantric Mirror is a split where Prabha Devi did all of side B and I, obviously, did side A. Containing new and old favourites from us both. Well, they are all old... but you get it. Enjoy!

20ft Radio and Dream Weapons present: STATIC LINES C60

Static Lines is a collaboration by Dream Weapons for 20ft Radio containing twenty minutes of hand-picked electronic tunes by Sadhu Sadhu (⟡), Prabha Devi (☾) and Moahaha (♌︎) each. For our third radio special we wanted to do something different than simply complile another best-of-everything-we-represent-mix. The end result is mostly an hour of catchy electro-pop - with the occasional soundscape snuck in between the "hits"

Dream weapons present: RITES AND PASSAGES C60

My idea of tunes for tripping, meditation, worship, rituals and other spiritual practices. But like myself you can just listen while leading your everyday life doing anything or nothing. I think all great music has the potential to mentally transcend you to places you’re not physically at. But nothing transports you along to other dimensions quite like pounding flutes and swirling percussion (or was it the other way around). 

I’m probably overemphasizing this whole transcendental-vibe a little. Among other things you’ll immediately notice that there’s normal jazz here too - albeit of the orientally & spiritually oriented kind.

Dream Weapons present: EARTH’S ORBIT C90

Covering a lot of musical territory and many moods - earth’s yearlong orbit around the sun seemed like an appropriate metaphor for my world party mix no. 4 or 5 (or 6). The Armenian lady dressed in her stunning traditional folk-costume largely exudes serious beauty but there’s an overweight of festive dance tunes here (also loaded with beauty I may add). Yet another one for the ever expanding dream-party-that-may-never-materialize-collection.

Dream weapons present: FIRE GONNA BURN MA SOUL C60

Finally got my hands on a mint version of the sensational 1967 seven-inch that bookends this mix. So I simply had to compile an additional 54 minutes out of the vintage African American soul, jazz, spirituals, spoken word, blues and folksongs about Jesus, protest, love, work/penal labor, life and death - that I had lying about. Slowly and inconsequently working our way backwards, two-thirds into the mix we go as far as nine decades back (pre-Great Depression era) - before «safely» arriving exactly where it started. Serious fun guaranteed!


1. King Coleman - Freedom
2. Michel Larue - How Come Me Here?
3. Brother John Sellers - Chain Gang
4. Sarah Webster Fabio - Soul Through a Lickin’ Stick
5. William S. Fischer - Gurea Da
6. Fugi - Revelations (Alt. take)
7. Shades of Black Lightning - Yesterdays Dream
8. Odetta - Ox-Driver Song
9. Byard Lancaster Quartet - Pam Africa

10. Ella Jenkins - Pole Pole
11. Vera Hall Ward - Travelling Shoes
12. Johnny Jackson & Inmates of Texas State Prisons - Hammer Ring
13. Victoria Spivey & Luis Russell's Orchestra - Dirty T.B. Blues
14. Ethel Waters - Down In My Soul
15. The Charioteers - Jesus is a Rock in the Weary Land
16. Sounds of Liberation - New Life
17. Thyme - Bony Bony
18. Langston Hughes - Testament
19. King Coleman - Freedom (Instrumental)

Dream Weapons present: LOW FIDELITY C60

Low Fidelity is another mix with quite a few interwoven genres. From memories of hearing Bobb Trimble the first time in Mikael's apartment in Copenhagen in the late 90s early 2000s, to songs recommended by Paul Welller of all people, this mix follows no tracks and just rises and drops in random fashion. Plug in and enjoy the ride, or stop off and check out one of our other 80+ mixtapes.

- Prabha Devi

Suzanne Menzel - Summer Rain
Dara Puspita - Surabaya
Peter Howell/John Ferdinando - Tomorrow Come Someday
Cooley Munson - Sightly Sue
The Children of Sunshine - Its A Long Way To Heaven
Catherine Derain - Le temps sen va 
Joe Simon - Rainbow Road
Bobb Trimble - One Mile from Heaven
France Gall - Nefertiti
Lion - You've Got A Woman
Robert Lester Folsom - Jericho
Stella Rambisai Chiweshe - Sarura Wako
Orchestre Septentrional Dhaiti - Angela
Roberto De Simone NCCP - II Coro Delle Lavandaie I Danieli E Voci Femminili
Unknown - akazéhé par une jeune fille
Tartit - Ansari
Sofia Loren - S`agapo


P.S. Nefertiti was added before news of France Gall`s death, so a little unexpected homage as well.

Dream Weapons present: THE TIME CAPSULE C90

A time capsule is a gift from a past to a future - which means it represents both the future and the past simultaneously. But no one knows if its a gift from an advanced past to a primitive future, or the other way around. So what is this about then? - nothing really but a concept that establishes an inspirational place in time and space to create this retrofuturistic trip to weirdsville. Come to think of it the title of the tune "Freeform Experimental Electronic Music with Spoken Poetry" says a whole lot about the capsule’s content - just add "catchy" before freeform.
