Dream Weapons present: THE HUMMINGBIRDS C60

Outside my window its all grey and the rain is pouring down. I find myself in need of a mindtrip with a summerly sort of vibe. Which is exactly what I’m offering you all as well. 

-The Americas is the natural habitat of the hummingbird and Latin America is primarily where they live. Much like my similarly themed: La Flor De Sur and Southwards before, I’ve collected a dozen sweet old songs and almost as many (dance) tunes - either originating from, or inspired by musical traditions from  somewhere south of Miami. Or maybe south of Key West. Once again prepare yourself for melodramatic voices, great melodies, infectious rhythms and much beauty! -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: EARTHDUST ONE C90 + ASTRAL LOUNGE C90 (Radio AlHara-revisitation 4 and 3)

Earthdust One will broadcast at the wonderful Radio AlHara tomorrow, thursday at 7:00 PM Betlehem time.  I was never 100% pleased with the opening track (As an introductory song. I do like it), so for this version I've scrapped it. Earthdust One now opens with: 1 Mario Migliardi - Tema di Andromeda... (over My Love Hath Vow'd). Other than that it's identical,  just a little "remastered". Still I think a download link to this new version is in its place:

-My first ever mix for Dream Weapons from December 2015, was supposed to start off in gentlest way - while slowly metamorphosing into unnerving darkness over 90 minutes. But fortunately for the listener that plan didn't really work for me. So I started blending a few dark, chilly moods in between the warm and comforting tunes and vice versa - instead. Much better. Folk, avantgarde, soul, enka, surf, jazz… almost every new song introduces a radically different style of music, but I dare say it’s quite an enjoyable ride -Moahaha  

Here's the link to the original post: Earthdust One (2015)

...and two weeks ago, this "oldie" was broadcast (sorry, yes I know been busy and this is all a little messy. But it deserves a visit/revisit).

Dream Weapons present: INDOOR GAMES C90

Late last August I compiled a folk-mix sort of tributing the coming of autumn in all its glory*. This year’s autumnal mix however, is for the great indoors. Contemplative, (but not meditative), gently strange songs and instrumentals for book reading, board games, playing cards, knitting, drinking tea or wine, making soup, staring out the window… or whatever you feel like like doing when days get colder and shorter. This time I actually made the cover art first, and then I started collecting music I enjoy that I associated with the visuals in one way or another -Moahaha
