Dream Weapons present: I HEAR VOICES C90

I had already started collecting tunes for this mix of mine simultaneously as Sadhu Sadhu mentioned his similarily themed Mouth of Truth. His approach was quite unlike I Hear Voices. But I too present to you a smörgåsbord of human emotions expressed through the use of voice-or voices as the running theme. I always had a soft spot for spoken word done with genuine musicality - and half of the material included is musically accompanied poetry and tales. While the rest is primarily wondrous folksongs, or the more abstracted «voice as an instrument» kind of soundscapes. As often before this mix is darkly flavored, jazzy, folky, psychedelic and occasionally far out and experimental -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: SILK ROAD C60

SILK ROAD started off as an attempt to piece together some music from the countries bordering that legendary passage, however, too many songs failed to fit, and I found others from different countries that worked better so it became what it is. A kind of excavation into some primitive songs and some more polished and well-recorded. Just light a shisha pipe, brew some mint tea and sit back and immerse yourself for an hour.
