Dream Weapons present: LITTLE BLACK BAG C90

 https://yadi.sk/d/Q37hbZiyor7RhQ

While waiting for the next 20ft Radio-mix to broadcast I figured I might as well brush up on - and share another one of my pre-Dream Weapons C90's. Its probably brand new to most of you blog visitors anyway. Upon relistening I enjoyed it way more than I though I would. An unpretentious, non-conceptual bag of freaky fun, I think. Eight years ago these tunes were all ultra obscure (even Drowning in Berlin & Yeweyn Haregitu).

-An eclectic mix of japanese waltzes, vintage electronics, strings & discobeats, fast flowing chanteuses, fun rides, badtrips, space-sweeps, and some occult jazzfusion. Once you opened this Pandoras purse and unleashed all its mysteries and dark little secrets, there's no turning back
-Moahaha, 2011

https://yadi.sk/d/UVlJSyZ-ZHTIEA

Like spinning in an opium hallucination, INCANTATIONS takes you through various stages of intoxication.

Dream Weapons present: SAFE SPACE IS THE PLACE C90


https://yadi.sk/d/cRbd5D15ounkAg

The season of colorful autumn leaves dancing in the air is ending and we’re entering the dark days of winter. So I’ve compliled a bright and gentle soundtrack to help us through. My idea of a safe space is a recreational place in sound filled with soft and comforting melodies, angelic voices, harps, wide eyed innocence and general kindness - rather than the modern understanding of the term. I guess mostly I just added «safe» to Sun Ra’s afrofuturist sci-fi flick and thought it looked kinda clever. Its basically Windswept Daydream / Birds of a Feather part three.

-Come to think of it warm and lovingly crafted melodies sometimes work like magic in horror movies, or as the score to your worst nightmares… but scratch that thought and just revel in tenderness -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: STORM WARNING C60

https://yadi.sk/d/bqJI_YUaGWO-Dg

Last year I made the mixtape Halcyon Daze which was a "feel-good" list of songs to ward off depression and open the doors of summer. Storm Warning follows in the same vein, trying to dispell the dark clouds of coming winter and breathe some sunshine into cold rooms. From calypso to japanese pop songs and african swingers, just let the mood take over and fill you with some optimism - Prabha Devi.

https://yadi.sk/d/WbkgXDcBSUgJtA

A trip to the «mystical orient» much like I imagined - or dreamt it was like during my early childhood days. I planned for this mix to slowly build in intensity from start to finish a little like a long bellydance routine but it rather builds, and builds then slows down… and builds again. -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: MUSIC OF THE SPHERES C90

https://yadi.sk/d/RBthOVLH1RlpiQ

The music of the spheres is recently proven by astrophysicists to be jazz. This is actually the first out of five (or six) oriental/spiritual, latin space-fusions and all that jazz in the vein of Fourth World and The High Priestess. Yeah I decided to keep on compiling until I ran out of unique ensembles and their more or less unheard tunes of awesomeness - and I have A LOT of gems to choose from. Jazz was undoubtly the greatest musical invention of the 20th century and here’s the first sixteen staggering variations of what it sounded like -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: WIND-UP MYSTERY BOX C60

https://yadi.sk/d/un9NnHrJV-l8LA

Digging for shellac-gems in flea markets and second hand stores is always a hit or miss treasure hunt. But the right kind of seven to nine decades old recorded music conveys a sort of life-affirming joy, emotional intensity or wide-eyed beauty that appeals to me more than most contemporary stuff. This mix containing only music of the 78rpm-era is a tribute of sorts to my hand-cranked gramophone player as a "magical mystery box". World music from a different world. -Moahaha

Spiritual world jazz poetry grooves, some eastern tinged psych, epic spaghetti western suspense, a trio of modern/trad Brazilian tunes and a funeral march. Nothing new from Dream Weapons - except this time the music is in fact brand new (or five years old at the most)! Seems like there’s actually some talent out there still (a joke). Enjoy! -Moahaha

Dream Weapons Present: DYING BREED C90


https://yadi.sk/d/qrSFH6FsJnSBOg

As it will take a little over a week from today till our next 20ft Radio special will broadcast, I decided I'd brush up on an almost eight year old C90 that was originally intended for सølγ שаябlɛş (which was shut down while I was on my finishing stages compiling this). A few of you may know this already - but here it is again, as an mp3 "special offer" for our blog-followers exclusively:
  
(Past Times Tunes For the End Times - Soothing Sounds of Shellac vol. II)
 

  We all know mankind had its chance and blew it. But as far as I know we did create the greatest music in the universe, and that almost makes up for all the evil and stupidity. Here’s a little time capsule documenting a slice of musical expressions on planet earth from the early to mid 20th century. The sound of imaginary 78’s spinning should provide for some comfort and warmth while you prepare yourself for the very end. Enjoy! -Moahaha, December 2011 

-it seems I've always had a tendency to try and make you think about the four horsemen of the apocalypse while listening to my nice collections of vintage tunes.

2.   Noor Jehan – Umangaen Dil Ke Machli 1947 India

Btw1: A few of these songs aren't as obscure and unheard as they once were. 
Btw2: I remember that Žikva Nemeček song were among a bunch of old tunes that were suppposedly ripped from 78's, but it doesn't sound 70 years+ old. And there's a couple more I never located the recording date for.
Btw3: While re-editing I messed up the tracklist a little bit on the B-side. But as I've said before: hey its for free!

Dream Weapons present: LORD DEATH’S COUNTING SONG C90

https://yadi.sk/d/XsUmFPg7-itZFg

This whole idea sort of came to me while listening through an impressive stack of shares on Die or D.I:Y? containing music by (occasionally perverted, mass murderous) cults and all sorts of far out religious music.

-I went about compiling this pretty much like I’d direct a low budget exploitaiton film about a wacko cult (leader): A beautiful intro with happy children holding hands while dancing, laughing and singing in a field - then the screen goes black, a delightfully eerie main theme starts and the title appears in awesome blood red fonts... or something. After the whole cast, producer, director-routine there’ll be a section showing seemingly innocent everyday life in the cult… Long beards and hair, bellbottoms, singing, nudity/orgies and Jesus sandals… But because they are batshit crazy things take a nasty turn. From there on it’ll just be a bunch of (beautifully shot) semirelated disturbing scenes until all hell/heaven breaks loose and everyone dies. End titles. Hey I never said I could direct!

It depends a little on where you'd draw the line but I suppose less than half of the performers here were actual cult members. Whether scary, naive, beautiful or pure evil its mostly some kind of religious music and mainly Christian (+some occult, pagan etc... stuff). A handful of tunes are «secular/neutral» but moodwise appropriate soundscapes I simply needed to create a killer mix for you all -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: COLONIAL SPACE TOURS C90

https://yadi.sk/d/3YFY62Z4qcitHg

Before I scrapped my original cover, inital idea and most of the content (but kept the title), the concept I went for was something like a travel agency or an intergalactic «Lonely Universe» travel book guide for future colonial space tourists. The end result is closer to this «pulp sci-fi» cover art - predominantly filled with stirring synth licks, drum machines and vocoders. Some new waveish songs as well, but all in all sounding much like the imagined soundtrack for a cheapish sci-fi flick anno ca. 1980 my visual presentation suggests  -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: UNHEIMLICH C60

https://yadi.sk/d/Z_k4SpkAY0gYmg

The common understanding of unheimlich is defined in Sigmund Freud's essay "Das Unheimliche" (published in 1919) where he explores the eeriness of dolls and strangeness in the ordinary. A few layers of meaning gets lost when translated into «uncanny», but its still about something both familiar and unfamiliar. Potentially it can be comforting and discomforting simultaneously. «Oh, that’s just the attic ghost again» or «you look exactly like me!». An «other» kind of haunting beauty is what I was going for. But don’t let my ramblings get in the way for you to decide for yourself -Moahaha

Exotica tends to get lumped into the easy listening-section. But although a thing of beauty its often got a remarkably eerie and dramatic atmosphere. A lot of «serious music» is surely an easier listen… Anyway to spice things up a little extra in between all the hip beach and jungle-soundscapes I’ve managed to dig up seven wondrously exotic vintage songs for you as well. If you dig this stuff even half as much as I do, you’re in for a real treat! -Moahaha
