Reuploads... + Cab Calloway

I've had to reupload Eastern Embroideries, Murderous Grooves, Endless Summer, The Quiet Earth, Seabeds and Desert Caravan to Ulož.to*. I'm quite familiar with it. It's simple to use and effective. If all the info appears in Czech, you can press the English flag. Press "Slow download/turtle" (slow=a minute or two). If there's any problems, just ask me. *Xmas Delights XI, We're Out of Space and Port of Call got new links as well.

  ...Mixcloud has started charging money for uploading further streams, Mediafire is blocking quite a few of my files, pCloud limits all my files due to "high download traffic"(edit: but now all the pCloud-files are active again) ... and they all want my money. But I'm not gonna spend money to share music for free. Looks like the universe is telling me to stop sharing mixtapes..................................  blah...

 

-If for nothing else but to make this post a little less boring, here's "an oldie" I compiled back in 2012, that's probably new to most of you. The link has been active all these years so it's just a repost. Like that Marie Laforêt-comp, it's shaped to resemble a double album: 

LP 1: A+B & LP 2: C+D or both in a:

"Does the hippest man ever to walk the earth need an introduction? If so, I'll let Wikipedia do it for me. Here's 16x2 of my favorite "Hi De Ho" man tunes compiled from a selection of ca. 300. Mainly taken from the 12 CD Chronological Classics - 1930-1947 collection, and the This is Hep-boxset. I definitely prefer his early days and everything included here is recorded sometime inbetween 1930-1941. I've tried to choose the best version I had available both sound-and performance-wise for each song" -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: XMAS DELIGHTS VOL. XI C60

 
 
My approach to this eleventh ever Xmas Delights is the same as my tenth, meaning: another sentimental nostalgia trip containing nothing but the familiar sounds of unfamiliar oldies from yesteryear. Longing back and romanticising the past is simply spirit the of the season. It’s been that way for generations before us. A century ago they were already singing about celebrating Christmas in «the good old fashioned way». Yes I know I’m repeating myself, but that’s just how I like it. Treat yourself with some warm mulled wine, hot cocoa… or eggnog (if that’s your poison:) and cuddle up by the fireplace, if you can - with this, my coziest hour of seasonal music yet. I wish you all, all the best -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: EASTERN EMBROIDERIES & MURDEROUS GROOVES C90X2 (reworkings)

 -I revisit all our old C90’s while making streams to upload for Radio AlHara. However these two mixtapes compiled in spring 2016, were originially C120’s(!). Not long after I posted them I’ve thought them both to be overlong and hard to sit through. You know, a little bloated. Our ninety minute radio slot twice a month was a perfect excuse to trim them down to three-fourths of its original size (plus improve on the flow, the sound and the cover art). To me they feel brand new and I finally enjoy them from start to finish. Well here they are (again):

EASTERN EMBROIDERIES C90 (March, 2016) new link: HERE

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. Wether it’s armenian tetrachords, persian shashmaqam-modes from the central asian regions, klezmer, balkan or gypsy tunes... melancholic,  joyous (or both simultaniously) - it always seem to go straight to my heart -Moahaha

MURDEROUS GROOVES C90 (April, 2016) new link: HERE

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 90 minutes of tunes in all kinds of moods, approaches and genres really, but still pretty much jazz in one way or another -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: WE’RE OUT OF SPACE C90

 
I don't know how well I succeeded but my intention was for the cover art to resemble my favorite Cosmic Jokers, Harmonia and Cluster-albums. I've compiled a sort of «Fahren, fahren, fahren auf der Milchstraße» mix of kosmische unterhaltung. Electronic music, but in a warm and playful way. For the most part -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: DESERT CARAVAN C90


 
It was only a couple of days ago I stumbled upon this dense, 19th century Orientalist painting by Charles-Théodore Frère. It affected me. I felt the intense heat and tasted the sand in my mouth. This is a soundtrack for the cover art and sonically a follow-up to my «east meets west» 2016-mix Orient-Tneiro. Back then I wrote «Oriental jazz-vibes and 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». I wouldn’t last for a day in a habitat like that, but I can listen to this kind of music all day every day. -Moahaha

(self)promotion: Eulipion Corps - Rites & Mysteries (Wormhole World, 2022)

Yes, I've made the cover art for a second Eulipion Corps album. After compiling 150 mixtapes I'm incapable of creating designs for the traditional CD/LP square (I tried both times:). But Julian doesn't seem to mind adopting "our signature look".

I've featured his music on two previous mixes: The Quiet Earth and It Was a Very Good Lightyear. So I'd say there's a fair chance you'll enjoy this if you enjoyed those - and of course if you liked Eulipion Corps (or "our") previous album Aenean Fields.

It's either free to listen to at Bandcamp, or £2.50 to buy the digital version (the CD is unfortunatly already sold out), so if you're curious, there's really no reason not to give it a try. I think it's beautiful. -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: THE HUMMINGBIRDS C60

 
 
Outside my window its all grey and the rain is pouring down. I find myself in need of a mindtrip with a summerly sort of vibe. Which is exactly what I’m offering you all as well. 

-The Americas is the natural habitat of the hummingbird and Latin America is primarily where they live. Much like my similarly themed: La Flor De Sur and Southwards before, I’ve collected a dozen sweet old songs and almost as many (dance) tunes - either originating from, or inspired by musical traditions from  somewhere south of Miami. Or maybe south of Key West. Once again prepare yourself for melodramatic voices, great melodies, infectious rhythms and much beauty! -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: EARTHDUST ONE C90 + ASTRAL LOUNGE C90 (Radio AlHara-revisitation 4 and 3)

Earthdust One will broadcast at the wonderful Radio AlHara tomorrow, thursday at 7:00 PM Betlehem time.  I was never 100% pleased with the opening track (As an introductory song. I do like it), so for this version I've scrapped it. Earthdust One now opens with: 1 Mario Migliardi - Tema di Andromeda... (over My Love Hath Vow'd). Other than that it's identical,  just a little "remastered". Still I think a download link to this new version is in its place:

-My first ever mix for Dream Weapons from December 2015, was supposed to start off in gentlest way - while slowly metamorphosing into unnerving darkness over 90 minutes. But fortunately the listener that plan didn't really work for me. So I started blending a few dark, chilly moods in between the warm and comforting tunes and vice versa - instead. Much better. Folk, avantgarde, soul, enka, surf, jazz… almost every new song introduces a radically different style of music, but I dare say it’s quite an enjoyable ride -Moahaha  

Here's the link to the original post: Earthdust One (2015)

...and two weeks ago, this "oldie" was broadcast (sorry, yes I know been busy and this is all a little messy. But it deserves a visit/revisit).

Dream Weapons present: INDOOR GAMES C90


Late last August I compiled a folk-mix sort of tributing the coming of autumn in all its glory*. This year’s autumnal mix however, is for the great indoors. Contemplative, (but not meditative), gently strange songs and instrumentals for book reading, board games, playing cards, knitting, drinking tea or wine, making soup, staring out the window… or whatever you feel like like doing when days get colder and shorter. This time I actually made the cover art first, and then I started collecting music I enjoy that I associated with the visuals in one way or another -Moahaha

Dream Wapons present: SEVEN DAEMONS & ELECTRIC SHEEP C90 (Radio AlHara-revisitation 1 and 2)

We weren't entirely certain how to go about this, but the great Radio AlHara is planning to broadcast all of Dream Weapons present mixes. They wanted to start with our oldest C90's, and send them in chronological order evey second and fourth thursday each month at 7:00 PM Betlehem time. We love that they'll be getting a little extra exposure many years later.  And may use this as an excuse to repost and reintroduce our (by now seven year old) mixtapes in relation to them being broadcast. I'm sure quite a few of you haven't gotten around to check out all our nearly 200 posts yet anyway, so these old mixtapes may be brand new to maybe most of you anyway? It actually started the 10th of August with our second ever mix: Electric Sheep from 2015 -Moahaha

Next one, for tomorrow/thursday (August) 24th is this one:


SEVEN DAEMONS C90 (2015) (link to original post)

-Seven Daemons pretends to be an esoteric journey into the very eye of psychedelia, but in fact it is simply a collection of songs I had on heavy rotation back then. From instrumentals to charming 70s pop-songs that flew under the radar, i’m sure there is something here for everyones fussy tastes -Prabha Devi

ELECTRIC SHEEP C90 (link to original post) 

-Pretty, strange and pretty strange soundscapes made with warmly radiating analogue synths. Often accompanied by dreamlike and eerie voices singing and speaking -by Sadhu Sadhu

Dream Weapons present: ENDLESS SUMMER C60

In this day and age I can’t wait for the dog days to end, but as a child I dreaded the coming of autumn. Remember feeling free, doing nothing, riding a bike with that girl or boy that became your best friend while on holiday? Or maybe you befriended a neighborhood cat. I always did. A warm and loving bittersweet farewell to the last breath of summer. Also, the actual songs here are mostly catchy, fun and (from) all over the place -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: THE QUIET EARTH C60

While waiting for a fun and lively radio special to broadcast, I decided to share this failed attempt on compiling an hour of «pleasant background music». I guess that’s outside my field of expertise. But it's still a nice mix! All very quiet and non-intrusive, but in a blue and melancholic way. Not as dark as the cover art suggests, but it would probably make for a beautiful soundtrack to a classy horror movie -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: DARK SWEETS C90

My official mixtape "debut" from some time in late 2011. Until then I had only made compilations for myself, a few friends, former girlfriends and my wife. I’m thankful that oVo contacted me and invited me to join inn on सølγ שаябlɛş. This was the first of the two contributions I shared before it got shut down and Owl went incognito. Pretty much. 

 As the years have gone by I’ve found additional info and learned that what I thought was a mix filled exclusively with pre-rock 78RPM-era tunes has three songs from the 1960’s on it. But they sure sound older!

The version I'm sharing here is almost identical, but better sounding and hopefully better looking too. Here's how I presented it back when it was originally shared:

-Dark Sweets is actually a by-product of compiling hours and hours of 50 – 100 year old music from all over the world for a New Years Eve party. For this mix I singled out my favorites tunes among the obscure tracks ripped directly from 78’s. I’ve added a few hits from my own collection but tried to stay away from any tracks I’ve discovered on other comps and mixtapes. So this should be a unique listening experience for most of you -Moahaha 

1. Ukulele Ike - Night Owl 1933
2. Zarah Leander - Jag Har Hört I Vindens Sus En Gång 1938
3. Victor Young - Hebrew Chant 1947
4. Cab Calloway and His Orchestra - Evenin’ 1933
5. Woody Herman - Marakesh 1955
6. Amelita Galli-Curci - Russian Nightingale Song 1927
7. The Kansas City Six - Pagin’ The Devil 1938
8. Henry Hall - Home 1932
9. Sofia Vembo - Konta Sto Nilo 1938
10. Desi Arnaz - Tabu 1951
11. Unidentified - Nights of Happiness
12. Nahwand - Fantasi
13. Katsuhiko Haida - Oh By Jingo 1937 (2022 bonus!)
14. Nat Shilkret - Bolero 1930
15. Six Brothers Brown - Peter Gink 1919

16. Tak Shindo - Cherry Blossoms 1960
17. Waldjinah - Igm Kr Sunda Kelapa 1968
18. Rina Celi Y Su Orquesta - Una Casita 1947
19. Alexander Chevtschenko - Zwei Guitarren 1943
