Dream Weapons present: DEAD BUT DREAMING C90


Its only occasionally as gloomy as the title and cover suggests. I just like the sound and looks of it.

-Picture yourself floating in some sort of limbo whilst semi-consciously drifting in and out of dreams. Some of them pleasant and beautiful while others eerie and dark but every time you you're about to grasp what its all about, the scenery changes. Perhaps forces of good and evil are fighting for your soul to keep. I don't know I've never been dead – and I don't have a soul. Far out! - but almost gentle enough to qualify as a relaxation tape.

Do yourself a favour and listen all the way through or else you'll miss out on Mal Waldron's stunning farewell.

Dream Weapons present: PÉROLAS BARROCAS C90


And now for something completely different, its: The Best Baroque Mixtape In The World...Ever!*

Pérola Barrocas means irregular pearls – which is the original meaning behind the term Baroque. I skipped the obvious genius of the era Bach (+ Handel...and Purcell), focusing rather heavily on the «early music» sounds of the harpsichord, harp, strings, gloomy organ and quite a lot of viola da gamba-drones. Some songs and dances, a few furiously dynamic orchestral assaults but the allegros are largely outnumbered by the adagios.

Dream Weapons present: PSYCHOMAGIK C60

Psychomagik is a compilation of songs from various walks of life. Intended as nothing more than auditory pleasure and a travelogue around the world taking in the sights and sounds of elusive caves and temples. It's not dark as much as an uplifting melancholy which fits nicely under the umbrella of the occult or the hidden. A paradise of hidden delights.
