Dream Weapons present: XMAS DELIGHTS VOL. VI C90


I’m running out of new ways to introduce the same concept for the sixth time in as many years, so I’ll quote myself from 2016 instead "My favorite Christmas tunes reminds why as a child the Yuletide used to be my favorite time of the year. An idealized daydream of what the festive season should be about - or once was"

 -Yet another nostalgia-drenched mix containing a generous chunk of oldies plus jazzy or folk-oriented seasonal-songs. Now you've potentially got seven and a half hours of top notch xmas-delights to enjoy. Who would have thunk it was possible? Not me that’s for sure. Anyway I hope you have yourself an ultra-Merry Christmas!

Dream Weapons present: WINDSWEPT DAYDREAM C90

A loungier, perhaps kitschier reinterpretation of musique d’ameublement - or "furniture music" as Satie branded it. An almost relaxation tape to snuggle up on your sofa rather than for meditating. Alternatively it can just spin in the background while you enjoy a book, a drink or both in a comfortable chair. Should blend in whether on your own or if you’re having company. But what business is it of mine to suggest where or when this should be listened to? - None absolutely. I hope you’ll enjoy it though.

Dream Weapons present: STRINGWEAVER C60

Athough "Stringweaver" sort of resembles the title of a horror novel (and not a very good one), I imagine stringweavers as musicians soundweaving on their stringed instruments.

While making mixes I often place a few folkloric, acoustic-based instrumentals in between songs for breathing space. But I notice that for my own listening pleasure I tend to remove them from that context to make long playlists containing nothing but these "inbetweeners". So I figured others might appreciate some extended breathing space too. And here it is; an hour of the kind of tunes that I could listen to like… forever.


1 Mediha Şen - Gönül Aşkınla (instr.)
2 Andre Hossein - Tema di Manuel e Maria
3 Ostâd Farâmarz Pâyvar & Ostâd Hossein Tehrâni - Zarbi Moghadameh
4 Savanna - Dance of the Clockwork Clown
5 Paul Winter Consort - Herresy
6 Aktuala - Mediterraneo
7 Hossein Farjami - Breeze from Heaven
8 Elisabeth Seitz - Improvisasjon
9 EQ Ensemble - Mimosa

10 Dave Evans - Elephantasia
11 Linda Cohen - Valentine Suite
12 Pan-Ra - Senanque 2
13 Domínguez / El Gringo / Cavour - La Danza de los Wititis
14 Jawdat Abdul Sattar Abdulla - Taqsim On Rast
15 Anibal Sampayo - Misionera
16 Iordanis Tsomidis - Harem Queen
17 Streetmark - Streaming

Dream Weapons present: DEATH RATTLE C60

Death Rattle is a complete hodge-podge of a mix. Completely incoherent, completely jumbled, just put it on and listen in bemusement and astonishment. Perplexity is the key. There might even be a tune or two you really enjoy.

Dream weapons present: FOURTH WORLD C90

Fused with either middle-eastern, latin, asian or african music + perhaps some rock, funk, folk, psychedelics and whatnot: jazz becomes jazz fusion, I guess. Loathed by purists (screw them anyway) and still slowly recovering from its self-inflicted late seventies reputation as show-offy, lifeless and smooth - but needless to say you won’t find any of that sort on this magic rug ride of swirling flutes, trippy percussion, hypnotic vibes and the like.


Btw: I got my title from Hopi mythology. Did you know that Spider Grandmother caused a bamboo to grow into the sky and that it eventually emerged into the Fourth World? True story.

2 Björn J:son Lindh - Abdo
3 Rena Rama - Batiali
4 Joe Zawinul - The Soul of a Village

Dream weapons present: A TRAVELLER’S TALE C90

Whether an explorer, a journey through space or a road movie... any kind of voyage is a thankful theme to work with. While brazenly mixing exotica, anatolian pop, north african polyrhythms, arab maqams, oriental jazz, raqs-recordings and more - this time its a trip through the music, sounds and traditions of the Middle East. My covers can occasionally be somewhat misleading but this one sounds a little like it looks. I think.

Dream weapons present: EXPLORADORA C90

An exploration of mysteries, melancholy, love, death, religion, good & evil... plus other important stuff. Exclusively and exquisitely sung or spoken by a cast of female voices (sans a duet and probably a mixed secondary school choir - or maybe two).

Exploradora is the Spanish or Portuguese word for "female explorer". Yes, like the Dora in that horrid animated educational show. Join inn on a voyage in sound where every continent on Mother Earth except Antarctica is explored, represented and heard.

In short: much beauty, but darkness lurks

Dream Weapons present: KAI TAK DESCENT C60 by Hong Kong Soul Radio

New guest mix for you all. This time from none other than Hong Kong Soul Radio:

"Hong Kong’s cultural identity was formed in the late 70s and 80s as Cantopop and Hong Kong films (including their soundtracks) became a cultural dominant force in Asia and Chinese communities around the world. Early Cantopop was hugely influenced by Western folk / pop of the 60s, Japanese pop / enka of the 60s and 70s, and Mandarin pop of the 40s and 50s. This mix attempts to connect all the dots and show the roots of what would eventually become the “Golden Era of Cantopop” in Hong Kong." - Hong Kong Soul Radio

Dream Weapons present: SOLEMN SOLEIL C60

Solemn Soleil is a playlist that perfectly exemplifies the Scandinavian summer. At times brilliantine and blazing hot, switching swiftly to downpours and seeking shelter in bars where all you want to do is listen to sad lullabies. There are some more well-known songs on this mix, it wasn't an attempt at obscurity, merely a nice collection to listen to depending on the weather.

Dream weapons present: YESTERLAND C90

Welcome (back) to Yesterland! I took the title from an online theme park for discontinued Disneyland attractions. Its actually a reworking of my third Pre-Rock mixtape* now improved in sound and flow with thirteen "brand new" and better tunes! Just about as fresh as a revisit to Yesterland can get...

One reason I love compiling music from the days of shellac is that the concept of «around the world in music» works like magic when the tunes are sonically unified in murky sound and hiss. Of course another appeal is that from the first half of the 20th century there's still so much unheard greatness out there waiting to get discovered.

1. Anne Shelton - Nightingale / 1942
2. Barnabás Von Géczy - Mexican Serenade / 1935

24. Janusz Poplawski - Garmoszka / 1930’s
25. Andy Kirk & His Twelve Clouds of Joy - Casey Jones Blues / 1931
26. Ruth Etting - Happy Days And Lonely Nights / 1928
27. Ken 'Snakeships' Johnson & His West Indian Dance Band (with Al Bowlly & the Henderson Twins) - Blow, Blow Thou Winter Wind / 1940
28. Jack Hart And His Dance Band - Song of the Dawn / 1930’s
29. Fréhel - L'Obsede / 1930
30. Toula Abratzi - Soultana / 1937
31. Rena Ntallia - Yialeli / 1952


*originally shared elsewhere over three years ago. Plus I’m well aware that rock had existed for a couple of years in 1957, but the two tunes in question sound as if they’re from ancient times.

Dream weapons present: EXORCISM C90

Its never the wrong season for some dark and haunting music is it? As you can probably guess this is a late 1970’s horror soundtrack. Apparently its from a terrifying story based on actual events. The back cover text says:

-Exorcism is a visually stunning, wonderfully gruesome tale of horror brimming with eerie beauty and hallucinatory wonder.

...Several ancient roman stone tablets are unearthed in a roman tomb located in Yugoslavia by a team of british archaeologists. They are brought back to a collection in a small university town in northern England. Years later a professor of greek solves the mystery of the magical symbols added to one specific tablet. While reading the spell out loud, a curse is cast on his own wife and two daughters and ancient demon spirits are unleashed…
