20ft Radio & Dream Weapons present: DRAIN CRYSTALS 2 C60


We're back! There's been a few real life complications that has prevented us from posting lately - a computer crash amongst them. But we have no intentions of quitting although this is our...

100th mix (hurrah!) and we had HUGE plans but the only thing that materialised is this follow-up to the first Dream Weapons-mixtape ever posted. So here it is: approximately 20 minutes of conscientiously selected music from each - all in a Drain Crystals-mode. Which means intimate, gentle, darkly gorgeous and haunting but nevertheless strange music - covering most of those genres and styles you’ve all grown accustomed to from Sadhu Sadhu ⟡, Praha Devi ☾︎ and Moahaha ♌︎︎. Cheers!

    1. Hey ghost AKA Eddie Brock, glad you like 'em!

      -I tried to describe the process of making a mixtape - including cover art in "The Time Capsule"-comment section (have a look). I found it difficult to explain though, and it doesn’t seem to have been helpful to the person who asked.

      But first you (obviously) need some Image Manipulation Program - like Photoshop, or the one I use: GIMP... the latter is free to download. If you’re new to all that it’ll take a little while to get used to the tools, coloring, filters etc… I’m sure there’s plenty of youtube tutorials that’ll get you started.

      Its much easier if you use an "existing" cassette cover as a base (one of our more straight forward designs such as «Ancient Future» should do the trick - you’ll find a large image file in each download-folder) for the one you’d like to make. I always find some nice and somewhat relevant image - an old book-cover, a vintage photo or illustration etc... adjust it in size and paste it over image on the the front of the existing cover thet you got. I often use the «clone tool» to clean up/remove old text/info. There’s also thousands of free fonts to download and install. Just write «free fonts "psychedelic» «Eastern European»… or whatever you need.

      … I don’t know whether you’re used to work with «photoshop» or not. If you’re not I have a feeling this won’t get you started. And if you’re a designer this far too elementary. Anyway, don't hesitate to ask and I'll try to answer in more detail.
