Dream Weapons present: ACROPODIUM C60


As a curator of mixtapes, this time I decided to invite 17 artists/composers to interpret a sculpture by Brâncuși. Haha no I didn’t. Originally I found a catalogue with an «ugly» (but in a great way) Jean Arp-piece pictured on the front page that I wanted to use as cover art. Naturally I started collecting a bunch of twisted tunes. But as often before I ended up in more beautiful place than where I started. Eventually the selected music didn’t really resemble ‘Ptolemy II’ at all anymore. So at the finishing stages I swapped that in favour of this alluring work of art instead. Finally here’s the equivalence to the exquisite «Mlle Pogany II» in sound. Somewhat -Moahaha.

1 Omoide Hatoba - A Scab Forms Crone
2 Anthony Davis - Prolog (The Days In Space)

Dream Weapons present: CELESTIAL SPACE INN C60

 
«Jazzing through the luminiferous ether» goes the strapline... which was the title of an interesting article I never read. For several millennia ether was thought to exist everywhere in space - as a fifth element of sorts. We have now come to learn that ether is superfluous. But that’s irrelevant to this musical excursion in vivid and spirited jazz fusion packed with sizzling grooves and scattered with heavenly chants. I have no idea what I’m talking about, but: Can you dig it? -Moahaha
 

1 Azteca - A Night In Nazca
2 Angelo Noce Santoro - Odessa - part I

Dream Weapons present: THE INNOCENTS C90

 

Up here in the northern hemisphere January is the coldest month of the year. And after a couple of mournful or dystopian shares, it's time once again to let a little sunshine in. In addition to fill your soundspace with beauty and bright welcoming warmth, these tunes will provide you with a healthy dose of vitamin D. Those who know me won’t be surprised to find glimpses of darkness in the light and vice versa - which means you need not to worry about overdosing on cuteness (depending a little on your level of tolerance I suppose). I could simply have written that The Innocents along with Safe Space is the Place, Birds of a Feather and Windswept Daydream makes for a six hours long quadrilogy of gently comforting melodies and trust that those four titles (plus the cover art) were explaination enough in themselves -Moahaha


1 Brewer & Shipley - Mass for M'Lady
2 Manfred Mann- Love Theme
3 Lori Balmer - Here Before The Sun
4 Cross Country - Just a Thought

Dream Weapons present: SECTOR UNIT C60

 

If you fuse the future utopian concept of (Kraftwerk’s) Computer World with the subterranean dystopia of Mark of the Mole (by The Residents) and add to that a Kafkaesque bureaucratic nightmare - you’ll find yourself somewhere in the neighbourhood of Sector Unit. There’s literally tons of reasons I’d rather have my not all bright, not totally bleak distant future as seen from the early 1980’s - instead of the future we got. The matching analogue electronic score being one of them - Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: OBSERVANCE C60

Observance is actually our 150th mix (yay) ever, but it seems I'm not really in a much of a celeboratory mood. Time to get somewhat serious again. I always find it easier to describe my inner imagined scenery rather than the actual musical content. A remembrance of sorts or maybe a burial is how I picture this. More like a modern version of a boat set on fire and set adrift than a «regular funeral» though. A darkly tinted meditation contemplating a closure, an ending or loss. But my ideal soundtrack to a customary practice, rite, or ceremony is not devoid of light - or life. -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: XMAS DELIGHTS VOL. IX C60

 
 
This year it took Pete Seeger’s banjo plucking whilst whistling the chorale from Beethoven's Ninth to seriously get me into the right kind of seasonal mood. No wonder «An die Freude» for a choir of 10 000 voices is Japan's most popular Christmas tradition. Other than that, Moahaha’s Ninth (Xmas Delights) is the usual nostalgia-drenched hour stuffed with the uttermost folk, latin and lightly jazzy Yuletide oldies. Yeah still mostly vintage tunes because hardly anyone knows how to properly sing or arrange carols anymore. As always there’s Santa vs Jesus battling out whether 'Tis the season to be mainly jolly or thankful - and if the Christmas spirit is something you’re supposed to drink or not. Happy holidays y’all! -and take care, Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: THE WILD ONES C60

This time I wanted to compile the ultimate soundtrack for a non-existing B-movie. Let's say its an unnecessarily violent, mildly entertaining Bonnie & Clydeish cash-in flick with a killer score and a moderately large cult following. Something like that.

-Gorgeous themes, groovin’ tunes, hip chansons, soul bangers, occult psych, far out exotica… its got a little bit of everything. And the action seemingly takes place on several continents. Yeah this one was mostly put together to entertain myself - and you. It almost qualifies as a "party mix" -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: REMONTANT C60

Seems we’ve all withered away for the most of this year and everyone's in need of a reblooming. But spring is nowhere near and all we can do is dream.

-So let your mind wander whilst listening to this bouquet of twenty reascended tunes from when the world was young. Visit our planet’s past ports and harbours, dance and drink your way through ballrooms, jazz clubs, saloons, opium dens, bars and castles. Make a stop in some small countryside village and smell its fresh, unpolluted air. Highbrow, lowbrow, in tears or laughter - a tragedy or a comedy. It doesn’t matter as long as you’re free -Moahaha

November the 5th 2015 Sadhu Sadhu & Prabha Devi posted their very first DWp-mix! The five pointed pentagram inside a pentagon (within the circle) on the cover symbolizes Dream Weapons present first five years of existence. Obviously.

-Joining forces for a second time, since the previous Polyhymnia, Moahaha and I dive into the mystical tapestry of occult whispers. Illuminating dark corners, sprinkling dust in quiet antechambers, these songs are mean't to be enjoyed in the stark, bone cold of winter.

Dream Weapons present: IT WELCOMES YOU C90

The three-day observance of Allhallowtide is upon us - which felt like the perfect excuse to locate and ever so slightly rework/improve my pre-dream weapons «horrorscore-mix». It was a pleasantly unpleasant revisitation containing one dark or dimly lit gem after the other. I think you might enjoy it too. Back in 2015 I wrote:

-I went for scores with a Fabio Frizzi/John Carpenter/Goblin sort of synthified keyboard driven approach but (largely) avoided all those themes «everyone» already knows - such as Suspiria, (the original) Halloween, The Beyond etc. There's probably just as much melancholic beauty as there is dark electrofunk here. Some of you are probably familiar with a few of these tunes already - but you never heard them presented like this -Moahaahaahaaaaa…!

…Oh, the title is inspired by The Creepshow Welcomes You (opening titles) in combination with the modern day classic It Follows. The thought of a something evil that appears welcoming at first was sort of chilling.

Its been quite some time since I last unleashed a multifarious around-the-globe-in-an-hour song&dance-ride* upon our listeners. Soo... I guess its time for another sprawling collection of finely aged melodies that you’ve never ever heard before - originating from somewhere either east or south of… me.

Dream Weapons present: A SONG IN THE BLOOD C90

 
 
So here’s another download only/revisitation of an older mix once posted elsewhere. I remade the cover (as always), removed a track that had about 5 million plays by now + a tune from a guy named Maria (whom I mistook for a woman) and a France Gall-song later used by Prabha Devi etc... The end result ended up about 80% identical to the original compilation. Probably a few songs you might have heard before and the B-side has a lot of really strange transitions, but whatever. A for Alluring lyricism and B for Beer and skittles perhaps. Here what I wrote six years ago:


-I planned to build A Song in the Blood around a couple of slow and sensuous songs by April Stevens and The Paris Sisters. You know the kind of long forgotten seemingly innocent (not really all that innocent, though) sounding pop-ditties that David Lynch could dig up, use in a scene and forever transform it into a masterpiece of melancholy, desperation and gloom. But this seductive mixtape of mine never materialised.

Instead I kept adding gently intense, ghostly folk tunes, eastern european folksy-pop on the A-side, and sweet girl groups of the far east, playful ye-ye, Bollywood, japanese vocal jazz and allsorts of stuff on the B-side... A trip through the motions and around the world presented by an all female cast. It wasn't meant to be a collection of songs sung by women excusively either. It just turned out that way

Dream Weapons present: SOMETHING BAD IS BETTER THAN NOTHING C60

 
 
When it comes to pursuing our goals, finding a deeper sense of purpose, or mastering a skill, doing something and taking some action is always better than doing nothing.

That is until we set a goal that is too far out of reach or our ideals gets in the way. Then our pursuit of continued action is replaced by the realization of how far we have to go to get to where we want to be. It’s then that nothing instead of something seems justifiable.

-That’s when its time to just chill, break some eggs, make an omelette and listen to something good. Like this compilation of German rock and jazz funk, Quebecois prog, Finnish folk and soft rock, American jazz, soul, hard rock, space rock and private press pop, Brazilian boogie, Turkish psychedelic funk, British modal jazz and mod pop -Lemon Fogg

Side A
1 The Rias Orchestra – Thariah
2 Epitaph – Kind of a Man
3 L.A. King – Wad’n
4 Plume Latraverse – Adiadyll

7 Michael Andrews - Something Bad Is Better Than Nothing

10 Apparition - Astral Spirit
11 Nitzinger – Motherlode

20ft Radio & Dream Weapons present: WE TRAVEL THE EARTHWAYS C60

One dope hour of worldjazz/psychfolk-grooves from the glorious era of corduroy bell-bottoms and swirly paisley prints. Imagine yourself in dry, earthy, sunburned landscapes riding on camels, elephants and on horseback across sand dunes, the savannah, the steppes and praries - or in a densely moist jungle, while riverboat traveling through the backwaters etc… Something like that. If any of this resembles your daily life already - just picture yourself on a reindeer sleigh ride through northern Scandinavia instead. Either way it’s the mindtrip you sorely need right now! -Moahaha
