Dream Weapons present: MORNING DEW C90

Although the title itself is nicked from Tony Hatch and Jackie Trents cover version of Bonnie Dobson's apocalyptic anti-nuclear protest song, I figured it was time for some pleasantly organic and good-natured music. In short I've compiled a collection of jazzed & psyched up «world folk». The challenge (or fun really) is mixing andalusian classical piano, baroque pop, medieval dancetunes, argentinian folklore and everything in between - while trying to maintain a natural flow. There's plenty of melancholy and dark moods but practically every second out of these ninety minutes are full of comforting warmth and beauty. Atleast according to me they are.

Dream Weapons present: DEUTSCH NEPAL C60
"Deutsch Nepal is a space-oddity mix mean't for late nights in the company of prescription drugs or herbs, staring through telescopes at the peripheries of space and all its unknown wonder. It is not a party playlist, it is mean't for contemplation. I have found many a great night listening to it staring out of the windows of buses through Central America or on planes, in airports or driving through long tunnels" - Prabha Devi

Dream Weapons present: ANTROPOCEN C90

The Anthropocene (same thing... in english) is a proposed epoch that begins when human activities started to have a significant global impact on Earth's geology and ecosystems. The name is a prop combination of anthropo- meaning "human" and -cene meaning «new».

Translating our present era into music is apparently the sound of cinematographic moods and static grooves - featuring new/cold & no wave, soulful drum machines, avantgarde oldies, vintage electronics and electroacoustic delights (and most certainly not the gentle psych-folk my cover art suggests)... at its catchiest! Join inn to rejoice in the wondrous and mourn the terrible ways of mankind at the end of Antropocen.
