20ft Radio & Dream Weapons present: ODYSSÉE ORIENTALE C60

A trip to the «mystical orient» much like I imagined - or dreamt it was like during my early childhood days. I planned for this mix to slowly build in intensity from start to finish a little like a long bellydance routine but it rather builds, and builds then slows down… and builds again. -Moahaha

  1. thanks, sincerely, every new release from dream weapons is an incredible present that lasts for years after downloading it. I never use these web platforms to express myself, but in this case i feel a huge debt impossible to compensate. Assuming the impossibility of answering to your beautiful potlatch, at least i wanted to express my gratitude.

    1. Thank you for making an exception (expressing yourself). We wouldn't be doing this if we weren't enjoying it, but a comment like yours do mean a lot.

  2. Another super mix. Ahem... I've tried everything, but I can't get track 14 to load into my roxio software.

    1. Thanks! Sometimes its just about the "unusual" letters - like the Ç at the beginning of the title. Anyway try this (and let me know if it loads):

  3. Yes, I usually remove the accents, shorten the file names. But about 80% of the mixes I've downloaded from dreamweapons end up with 1 or 2 tracks which won't load into roxio - whatever I do.

    I've downloaded and installed Yandex. End result: exactly the same I'm afraid. Such a shame.

    However, by accident I've found that after renaming the main file, and then RENAMING all the mp3 files to the same name - now I can load into Roxio. But I have to load the tracks carefully in the right order... I think....

    It's a good thing I have a sense of humour!

    1. Strange, but I have no experience with Roxio. Anyway I've never downloaded and installed yandex myself and don't know what that is good for. The link I pasted into my previous comment was to a new mp3-version of the song that wouldn't load. You should be able to just press download and get the file (I would remove the installed Yandex-thing).

    2. Everything is fine Moahaha. The method I described above has enabled me to burn all the mix-tapes I'd downloaded - including "The Girl Who Collects The Bones of The Deer". That had no end of long titles and accents.

      Thanks for all your help. An even bigger thanks for sharing so much marvellous and obscure music.

    3. Great! - I probably wasn't much help though.
