Dream Weapons present: MONDE À PART C60

 
 
Its been quite some time since I last unleashed a multifarious around-the-globe-in-an-hour song&dance-ride* upon our listeners. Soo... I guess its time for another sprawling collection of finely aged melodies that you’ve never ever heard before - originating from somewhere either east or south of… me. My semipretentious Godard-paraphrasing title aside, I really just hope my selection of songs will lift your spirits -Moahaha

2 Elisabeth Waldo - Balsa Boat
3 Khurmo Shirinova - Didam Ingori - Дидам Ингори Худро
4 The Silvery Boys - O Amanhecer

Dream Weapons present: A SONG IN THE BLOOD C90

 
 
So here’s another download only/revisitation of an older mix once posted elsewhere. I remade the cover (as always), removed a track that had about 5 million plays by now + a tune from a guy named Maria (whom I mistook for a woman) and a France Gall-song later used by Prabha Devi etc... The end result ended up about 80% identical to the original compilation. Probably a few songs you might have heard before and the B-side has a lot of really strange transitions, but whatever. A for Alluring lyricism and B for Beer and skittles perhaps. Here what I wrote six years ago:


-I planned to build A Song in the Blood around a couple of slow and sensuous songs by April Stevens and The Paris Sisters. You know the kind of long forgotten seemingly innocent (not really all that innocent, though) sounding pop-ditties that David Lynch could dig up, use in a scene and forever transform it into a masterpiece of melancholy, desperation and gloom. But this seductive mixtape of mine never materialised.

Instead I kept adding gently intense, ghostly folk tunes, eastern european folksy-pop on the A-side, and sweet girl groups of the far east, playful ye-ye, Bollywood, japanese vocal jazz and allsorts of stuff on the B-side... A trip through the motions and around the world presented by an all female cast. It wasn't meant to be a collection of songs sung by women excusively either. It just turned out that way
-Moahaha, September 2014

2. Salli Terri - Estrella Do Mar
3. Eva Porubová - Jede Matúšek

Dream Weapons present: SOMETHING BAD IS BETTER THAN NOTHING C60

 
 
When it comes to pursuing our goals, finding a deeper sense of purpose, or mastering a skill, doing something and taking some action is always better than doing nothing.

That is until we set a goal that is too far out of reach or our ideals gets in the way. Then our pursuit of continued action is replaced by the realization of how far we have to go to get to where we want to be. It’s then that nothing instead of something seems justifiable.

-That’s when its time to just chill, break some eggs, make an omelette and listen to something good. Like this compilation of German rock and jazz funk, Quebecois prog, Finnish folk and soft rock, American jazz, soul, hard rock, space rock and private press pop, Brazilian boogie, Turkish psychedelic funk, British modal jazz and mod pop -Lemon Fogg

1 The Rias Orchestra – Thariah
2 Epitaph – Kind of a Man
3 L.A. King – Wad’n
4 Plume Latraverse – Adiadyll

20ft Radio & Dream Weapons present: WE TRAVEL THE EARTHWAYS C60

One dope hour of worldjazz/psychfolk-grooves from the glorious era of corduroy bell-bottoms and swirly paisley prints. Imagine yourself in dry, earthy, sunburned landscapes riding on camels, elephants and on horseback across sand dunes, the savannah, the steppes and praries - or in a densely moist jungle, while riverboat traveling through the backwaters etc… Something like that. If any of this resembles your daily life already - just picture yourself on a reindeer sleigh ride through northern Scandinavia instead. Either way it’s the mindtrip you sorely need right now! -Moahaha

20ft Radio & Dream Weapons present: INNEROUTERSPACE C60

 «Where the mind goes, the body will follow» as that motivational Arnold Schwarzenegger-quote goes. Of course he was talking about bodybuilding, but it might as well had been about trippin’ far out into the Milky Way, surrounded by its billions of planets and stars - while accompanied by Kosmische Muzik. Here's ten mostly analogue electronic tunes lost in space and time 1979-1986 -Moahaha

1 Age - Hymalaya

Dream Weapons present: ARIRANG MOUNTAIN PASS (SONG SEARCH VOL. 3) C60


The story begun like this: Many moons ago a former flatmate had this wondrous 1960’s or early 70’s female fronted, South Korean Trot/folk-pop record that we used to spin all the time. In my unsuccessful search for that original album I came across hours of enchanting folk, pop and gentle trot-oldies from the same era instead…

BUT *drumwhirl* now I’ve finally located the album in question (Hurrah!) and so my song search saga ends. Turns out it was by The Queen of Elegy herself: «Lee Mija's folk song album» from 1970 (featured song «Changbu Taryeong» is taken from there). Before you check out the holy grail of Trot, immerse yourself in this final hour of 20 golden trot-delights -Moahaha

 «Nostalgia for a time you've never known». These tunes will make you long for those carefree summers long before you were born. Yes its truly gorgeous stuff. Some of you may recognize the cover art’s resemblance to Drawn From Memory. That’s because this is its fraternal twin. So I might as well re-use what I wrote then.

-Some music transcends you to outer space or other dimensions - while Anemoia is like a time machine that transports you backwards to a deceitfully wondrous past that never was. Twenty-one dusty old gems that time forgot from all over most of the world -Moahaha

An off season open air ballet for figure skaters, musically accompanied by dreamy analogue electronics. Although ideal for letting your mind drift away on a frozen lake (or into outer space), I think icy instrumentals are perfectly suitable for the summertime.

20ft Radio & Dream Weapons present: SOUTH OF SAHEL C60


https://yadi.sk/d/Ugp3b01BM_YtDw

Culturally and historically, the Sahel is a shoreline between the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa. So this mix contains music originating from the latter part of the continent - that has generally been less influenced by arab culture. Which means more Afrobeat, Qaraami, Highlife,  Bikutsi, Mande+Yoruba Music, and no belly dance grooves. Full of beauty, life, joy and intense emotions - and perfect for the summer. Cheers! -Moahaha

Dream Weapons Present: DANSE MORTELLE C60

https://yadi.sk/d/HLpsts6Sk4pMXA

The way I see it any kind of musical expression that speaks to me is a positive experience. Now I think its time for some darkness again. The beautiful, weird and wicked sort of dark. I often pretend I’m directing a movie when I compile mixes. And the open ended, artsy but unintentionally comical straight to VHS film d’horreur érotique; Danse Mortelle revolves around a Bubonic Plague. It includes quite a few scenes of seduction and witchcraft plus dancing and singing around mountainous bonfires - which is why I’m posting it in time for Walpurgis Night. After all I named myself after the maniacal laugh of a fictional villain -Moahaha!

Dream Weapons present: TRAVELIN’ IN THE DARK C60

https://yadi.sk/d/xzOJKjjFuVIWBw

Largely a collection of 40-50 year old (fashioned) haunting folk songs that were crafted somewhere in the Anglosphere. Gentle melodies of eras past filled with forlorn longing, unrequited love, hopes & fears, war, death and God. To me these tunes belongs to the woods, the lakes, the mountains... not the concrete buildings of the crowded cities - or its artificial lighting. Rural music that'll take you away on overgrown paths and dusty dirt roads. Like a singular road movie on foot -Moahaha

Seriously - I simply forgot to post an earlier version of this at March 8 last year. Anyway I figured eighteen female fronted 1970-1980’s tunes you’ve probably never heard - that would have been big hits in a fairer world - was the appropriate mix to share on this day. Easily my most lighthearted mix ever containing gorgeous City Pop, Mandopop, Synth Pop, Latin Pop, + just plain Pop, Enka, Soul/Funk, New Wave, Blue Beat/Reggae and Vocal Jazz. Yes its Happy Hour. Well mostly… especially if you don’t too pay close attention to some of the lyrics. Cheers! -Moahaha

Another oriental/spiritual, latin, psych-fusion and all that jazz in the vein of Music of the Spheres, The High Priestess and Fourth World (+ most of Spirits Unknown). The sort of post-Coltrane «world jazz» musical language that developed seemingly everywhere in combination with electric Miles, is an endless source for compilable gems yet to be discovered. Fifteen gorgeously warm and earthy grooves combined with some darkly tinted mysticism. And out of everything I listen to These are a few of my favorite things within The Sound of Music -Moahaha
