Dream weapons present: FIRE GONNA BURN MA SOUL C60


Finally got my hands on a mint version of the sensational 1967 seven-inch that bookends this mix. So I simply had to compile an additional 54 minutes out of the vintage African American soul, jazz, spirituals, spoken word, blues and folksongs about Jesus, protest, love, work/penal labor, life and death - that I had lying about. Slowly and inconsequently working our way backwards, two-thirds into the mix we go as far as nine decades back (pre-Great Depression era) - before «safely» arriving exactly where it started. Serious fun guaranteed!

Dream Weapons present: LOW FIDELITY C60


Low Fidelity is another mix with quite a few interwoven genres. From memories of hearing Bobb Trimble the first time in Mikael's apartment in Copenhagen in the late 90s early 2000s, to songs recommended by Paul Welller of all people, this mix follows no tracks and just rises and drops in random fashion. Plug in and enjoy the ride, or stop off and check out one of our other 80+ mixtapes.

P.S. Nefertiti was added before news of France Gall`s death, so a little unexpected homage as well.

Dream Weapons present: THE TIME CAPSULE C90


A time capsule is a gift from a past to a future - which means it represents both the future and the past simultaneously. But no one knows if its a gift from an advanced past to a primitive future, or the other way around. So what is this about then? - nothing really but a concept that establishes an inspirational place in time and space to create this retrofuturistic trip to weirdsville. Come to think of it the title of the tune "Freeform Experimental Electronic Music with Spoken Poetry" says a whole lot about the capsule’s content - just add "catchy" before freeform.
