Dream Weapons present: PURGATORY BLUES C60 by Al Lover


"Next up on the Dream Weapons guestmixes is none other than Al Lover. Al spends most of his time touring the world with his solo electronic work and working with levitation as their official Dj. We asked him if he would be interested in doing a mix, and sure enough he delivered an eclectic mix of "Purgatory Blues" ready to download, record on tape and print the cover art." -Prabha Devi

Dream Weapons present: HANUMAN'S FIRE TORCH C60


"Ravana tried to murder the captured Hanuman by setting him on fire with a fire-torch, dressed in Royal Siamese apparel. This mix is named after the incident, but any further resemblance stops here. It's basically a short journey through Jazz, World Music, Voodoo Tunes, French Soundtracks and the odd Gospel song thrown in to confuse and coerce the listener into just relaxing for a moment and giving in.

Nothing is to be gained, but hopefully nothing will be lost either."

Dream Weapons present: EASTERN EMBROIDERIES C120

 Eastern Embroideries c120

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. Politics and troublesome history aside, wether it was armenian tetrachords, persian shashmaqam-modes from the central asian regions, klezmer, balkan or gypsy tunes– somehow it always reminded me of fairy tales.

I compiled 120 minutes in two parts or 2 x c60. If these parts were character types or beings Out of the Village would be the extrovert and Into the Forest the introvert. But music and emotions are more complex than that so you'll find melancholy and joy simultaneously in both the village and the forest.
