Dream Weapons present: MY DEAR LIFE C60 by Glockenspiel

For the first time in ages, we present a guestmix. Big thanks to mr Glockenspiel for his contribution! 

- Sadhu Sadhu

My Dear Life is an eclectic mix of library music, French baroque pop, some obscure acid folk and some Beatlesque tunes. It makes for a dreamy and at times almost sacral listen. There’s not really a cohesive theme here, but I usually prefer it that way. You don’t really know what’s coming next, and that keeps you from drifting off and forget about what you listen to. Hope you enjoy this mix and share it with others.”

Dream weapons present: (UN) MODERN C90

This collection of 20/21th century classical/avantgarde music sounded way more cutting edge at its early stages. But these haunting spine-tinglers of otherworldly beauty kept replacing the more challenging ugliness, until the latter material felt like roadblocks on a musical journey. Melancholic and mournful - at times even sentimental and nostalgic-sounding, but then again even mid-century totalitarian brutalist architecture comes across as sort of cozy in 2017. (un)modern or not mind you - for our 50th mix(!) I still compiled a rather dark and brooding hour and a half.
