Dream Weapons present: INTO BLISS C90

One reason as to why I compile all these jazz-mixes of pure bliss and no atonal blowouts just occurred to me: This is largely how I present jazz to others in real life. Very few people I know are as deeply into all kinds of music as myself. Anything too free, avantgarde or invasive will just get in the way of conversation - and make them uncomfortable. Hell, in regards to my family, even the jazz collected here would give me weird looks. But my friends wouldn’t mind this. And I obviously love it, so «Into Bliss» is an attempt to… please everyone (except for my family) -Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: HERDING CALLS C60

As promised in my previous post here's that Western European folk-mix of mine. Or rather the Nordic nations plus France, some Celtic songs, a Welsh tune and uh... an Irish music project from Sardinia. No 1970’s psychfolk this time, but more traditionally based. In all of my crate digging life I’ve flicked through countless Scandinavian folk albums with similar cover art to this one, in the cheap bins. As charming as they often appeared visually, I still never gave them the time of day. Well, not until in the last couple of years or so. About half of these represent some of the best tunes I’ve located on such albums - while the other half is found… elsewhere:) An hour full of life and wonderful melodies. Try it! -Moahaha
