MUSIC FOR DREAMS

Willie Graff & Darren Eboli

The Tribeca Tapes

Quality is the key word from Copenhagen based Music For Dreams and here is another home run. Willie Graff splits his year between DJ residencies in New York and Ibiza. In this new outing with studio partner Darren Eboli, the influence is, as the title suggests, clearly NY-based. Over only four tracks, the pair manage to craft a stunningly comprehensive exploration of the essential elements of dance music.

Opening track "Love Flight" staggers into a lush string-driven groove that recalls the glory of Metro Area meets Wally Badarou vibes. Minimal yet playful, it lounges somewhere in the depths of the house tradition, calling on familiar sounds while throwing in odd details along the way (harmonicas?). It takes both skill, devotion and a sense of humor to pull this track off, making for a strong opening. "Moon Tan" lingers on a metallic hook that drags you into a plethora of percussion followed by a rubbery soft baseline. Dubby key work would suggest this was a new wave band jamming at Compass Point, while the icy chill of the xylophone transports you into 80s italo territory.

"Second Sun" pulls out the bag of boogie tricks, relying on a firm but humble baseline and smattering drum machine claps. Nile Rodgers-style guitar licks guide us onwards into a well-orchestrated jam that builds up and breaks down with perfect timing while dreamy chords reach for the sky. "First Light" keeps the groove tight while dipping over towards more Balearic temperatures. Steeped in a watery atmosphere and gentle organic percussion, it focuses in on a trance-inducing arpeggio that lulls you in to the swaying Badarou-style synth swirls that intercept it.

Two Music For Dreams releases in two weeks? The Balearic gods are smiling our way. Somehow sunnier than last week's luxurious Dalholt and Langkilde LP, this lush Latin wax winds its hips between house, Balearic and bossa, garnering support from DJ Harvey, Pete Tong, Ruf Dug, Alfredo and Mison in the process. Our beach party opens with "Te Faz Bem", the most played Balearic beauty of Harvey's Mercury Rising residency at Pikes last summer, which flexes its feathers here in true 'Coma Club' fashion thanks to MFD main man Kenny Bager. Solid Balearic beat percussion nods along nicely in support of the swaying bassline before Latin guitar, echo drenched vocals and eventual bursts of brass kick up the warm smell of colitas. Add in flamenco hand claps, opulent Rhodes chords and a mercurial flute solo and you'll find me sharing a cigar with Maitê Proença and Zico in the corner of an exotic beach bar. Italian DJ don Riccio ups the tempo on the A2, injecting those South American elements with a shuffling carnival house beat and buzzing synth lines while dubbing out the vocal for a deeper version that's a dream to mix. Over on the flip we roll shoulders and shimmy along to the Balearic disco delights of "Deixa Música Tocar" (Let The Music Play), a hypnotic offering alive with incessant bass, scatted vocals and extended trumpet solos. Finally K-Bag takes the controls again for an alternate mix of "Deixa Música Tocar" which tweaks the arrangement into something playful, punchy and percussive, like Tony Allen on a South American vacation.

Patrick says: Another sweet summery treat from the good ship MFD here as the Harvey approved "Te Fez Bem" from Copenema gets a vinyl release. Featuring top reworks from Kenneth Bager and Riccio this is a caliente cut folks. Scorchio!

Copenhagen label Music For Dreams release yet another brilliant debut album, this time by the Danish duo Dalholt & Langkilde. The album has a wonderful warm summery vibe, with slick smooth production, hypnotic bass grooves, live guitars & vocals. The sultry French spoken word vocals on opener ‘Charite’ (one of Patch's Balearic picks of the last few years), ‘Sur Plus’, ‘Tranquille’ ‘& Je M’appelle Spacy’ certainly channel the spirit of Serge Gainsbourg & Max Berlin, which only adds to the European flavour of the LP. There is a jam like feel to most of the tracks on the album; for instance the Moonboots faves "Bonne Nuit" and "Doucement", which sound like Durutti Column /Vini Reilly sessions made in Copenhagen. Demise Ducha provides the vocals on tracks ‘Disco Disco’ & ‘Afrique’, lending an almost Cocteau Twins feel, which when combined with the sweet African (soukous) guitar licks and floaty bongo rhythms are sure to propel these tracks into the realm of the Balearic classic. The album also features summery 95 BPM chugger ‘Versaire’ with Copenhagen friend Emil Breum (The Swan & The Lake) - soft sax tempered with atmospheric synth for a wonderful soundscape effect.

Hotter than a Channel 4 dating show right now, Copenhagen's Music For Dreams follow up the dope Ambala double pack with another twin disc winner, this time from Sweden's Prins Emanuel. Released in double vinyl format, Emanuel’s first full length solo project is a concept album revolving around the medium of the record itself. With a functionalist’s attitude, each of the vinyl records can serve a different purpose. Translated from Swedish, the album title literally reads "Work/Leisure Time" and the contrasting moods of the two discs reflect the different activities. So on a Friday evening, you might tell your girl or boy to put on the A/B sides as you're getting ready to bust some moves that night. And on Sunday evening, you tell him/her to put on the C/D sides as you're relaxing and topping up a bath. Although this is a multi-instrumentalist’s vision, the fact that Prins is primarily a drummer is clearly evident in the masterful hypnotic grooves that form the base on which the whole album stands. And while elements of dub, boogie, afro, house and new age flicker by as we ride along on these motorik rhythms, the balance between warmth and repetition provokes an irresistibly tickly tension. The young Swede won many a fan with his earlier output on Fasaan and Chalice, but this debut long player sees him taking his craft to a whole new level.

Patrick says: Fasaan favourite Prins Emanuel drops a conceptual double pack on Music For Dreams, fusing dub, afro, new age and boogie into a groove heavy masterpiece perfect for nights on the tiles or days on the sofa. If you dug on Studio's "West Coast", then you'll be all over this!

“Moments In Time” compiled by Moonboots is the second album in the new special collector series on Copenhagen’s music for dreams. The first album was “Tropical Drums Of Deutschland” by Jan Schulte. For the new compilation “Moments In Time”, Music For Dreams has asked long-time friend of the label Moonboots to pick out a selection of songs with the power to encapsulate moods of calm and moments of contemplation.
Moonboots has been a fixture of the Manchester scene since the Balearic boom in the late 80’s. He runs the prolific vinyl label Aficionado Recordings together with fellow DJ Jason Boardman, a project that started out as a Sunday evening club night. Since 2012, they’ve dished out more than a handful of 12” releases with an ever-surprising selection of underground acts at the fringes of what might be called Balearic. Some of these artists turn up here as well, with exclusive material culled from various demos and unfinished tracks. Swedish-based Farbror Resande Mac for instance, with the brooding, glacial and Carpenter-esque “Janne”, an old fave of Moonboots which featured on their (now defunct) website. “Names In The Sand” by Begin starts off as a similar story: a forgotten demo track Moonboots came upon a few years ago and has been spinning in digital form since. The version you will hear on the compilation is a tweaked and finished version. Another exclusive is the extended version of “Från Andra Hand Till Stränderna I Nice” by Gryningen, previously released in 2015 on Aficionado, now extended by Salta to six minutes instead of two.
Stepping aside from digging through the outputs of Aficionado affiliates, Moonboots also manages to stumble over a cover of Lesley Duncan’s eternal masterpiece “Love Song”. As Moon runs an Instagram account called onehundredlovesongs highlighting his collection of Lesley Duncan cover versions, this is clearly an obsession that bears fruit. “The Natureboy version came about in a weird way”, says Moon. “I was DJing at Spiritland (London) and playing this obscure Canadian xian version when the owner Paul came over to ask about it. He then told me his brother had recorded a version, put me in touch and next thing you know it’s on the comp.”
Much of the selection has aimed to include tracks which have previously never seen vinyl release, whether only issued on CD or digital. For instance, the track which gives the compilation its title is a crisp and loungy Paul Hardcastle production from 2005, only ever issued on CD. Other selections only out before on CD are the new age epic “Cello Blue” by David Darling from 2001 filled with field recordings of birds and water while Denmark’s own new age maestro Rishi contributes with the track “Simple Trust” from his 1993 album “Notes From The Inner Stream”. Another track seeing its first vinyl release is the contribution from world-jazz trio Bombay Hotel, featuring Kenneth Knudsen as well as Ole Thiel and Mikkel Nordsø who recently released new material for Music For Dreams - the Cafe Del Mar classic “Between Leaves”. Fact – label boss Kenneth Bager gave a copy of the original Bombay Hotel CD in 1993 to Phil Mison at Cafe Del Mar and told him about the “Between Leaves” track. Phil started to play it and the rest is history. The exception to the rule of vinyl premiers is the sample-heavy “Gissningsleken” by Ben Morris - previously released on a limited run 7” from 2012 - as well as dreamy July Skies track “The Softest Kisses” – the 7” version of which has never been issued elsewhere. New Moonboots faves German duo Blank and Jones are included with the summery “My Island” alongside new Danish artist “The Swan And The Lake“ with the exclusive mix of “Moments Of Lost Swans” (Remix) featuring Jonas Krag on pedal steel guitar. All in all, Moonboots has put together a dense collection of songs with a timeless feel. They will doubtless sound as good in the pub as they might at home on a Sunday or in a cabin in the woods. To top things off, the sleeve design comes from Aficionado’s graphic designer Topsy Van Salkeld.


Mikkel Nordsø and Ole Thiell are no newcomers. Influential key players both on Copenhagen’s jazz scene and on the international circuit since the late 1970s, they have recorded and performed with such greats as Santana, L. Subramaniam, Jan Akkerman and George Duke to name but a few. Their numerous local projects include the much revered Bombay Hotel trio featuring Kenneth Knudsen. On their first record from 1989, they bridged the gaps between fusion jazz, new age and traditional Asian folk music into ethereal expressions that stand out even today. With this new album for Music For Dreams, the duo delves deeper into that soundscape with an even more profound knowledge of their instruments. With Nordsø on the flute and guitar and Thiell on various percussion instruments, they form a musical language together that reaches high spiritual levels while carefully blending electronic instrumentation to complete the experience. Guest vocalist Caroline Francesca steps in on the opener "Good Morning" and the closer "Sun Fo Ni" - the first being a sun-drowsy Brazilian-inspired jam, while "Sun Fo Ni" leans further towards crisp English folk. The inclusion of Francesca comes naturally, as she is the daughter of percussionist and long-time collaborator Jacob Andersen (who also releases on Music For Dreams as Bongo Entp.) making this quite a family affair. Named after a harbour town in Morocco, the track "Essaouira" weaves field recordings of children playing in the sun together with brooding oriental folk and a discrete drum machine beat. For "Japtal" the flute takes centre stage, leading us on a serene journey that unfolds into improvised passages along a chugging heavy groove, escalating and releasing in tempo much like the breathing techniques of yoga. "Velvet Sky" sees the duo at their most relaxed, letting it ride on feather light ambient chords and noodling out into a wigged out prog rock ballad. "B Phrygian" takes us into ancient Anatolian territory, again showcasing the duo’s vibrant live instrumentation with Thiell hurling an army's worth of percussion layers onto the dusty beaten path laid out by Nordsø's stone-faced psychedelic assaults. This album is a classic in the making already getting strong support from Mison and egg-fan Moonboots, who declared it "the best record I have heard in the last 10 Years!" Don’t miss...

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: The pick of this weeks MFD bunch, 'Nordsø & Theill' is frankly sublime. A gorgeous fusion of jazz musicianship, asiatic melodies and esoteric instrumentation, this LP rightly has Moonboots in a spin. A Balearic masterpiece and certain future classic!

Istanbul-based Tolga Büyük started his solo project Islandman in 2010 and has already built quite a name for himself with a slew of self-released EPs & albums. Already prominent in Istanbul’s psychedelic scene as part of live-performance band Farfara, as Islandman he builds his unique style off the rich history of Turkey’s psychedelic rock movement, taking it further in his own direction.
The Anatolian tradition of fusing the country’s folk music with Western influences has produced a unique legacy of sound, as evident by the discographies of Erkin Koray and Baris Manco for instance, with the guitar long the sound weapon of choice. So too for Islandman, but apart from mastering this instrument quite eloquently, he also orchestrates it into a new and different context than merely providing hippie nostalgia. By re-framing the murky and somewhat dusty Anatolian psychedelic sound with a cool Mediterranean vibe and a very Balearic-friendly production, Islandman’s music is the next step in the progression of Anatolian music.
On “Rest In Space”, his first full length outing for Music For Dreams, the LP keeps a steady pace of around 90-95 bpm, but never gets repetitive with Islandman taking us on a rich and ever surprising journey, full of quirky turns and mysterious instrumentations.
The opener “Rest In Space” treats us to a funky percussion-thick rhythm that lounges into a pool of playful & jazzy horn & flute arrangements. This is followed by the epic “Night Wind” which sweeps across cinematic desert landscapes of synth layers and falls into a dark night time groove reminiscent of Nicolas Jaar & Dave Harrington’s Darkside project. “Seikleos” centers around a motorik electronic rhythm pattern (not unlike the classic electro-pop classic “Popcorn”) that develops into a chugging balearic house jam while stand out track “Future Days” brings in a female guest vocalist to complete the album with a breezy full on groover that echoes of both Sheila Chandra and Tom Tom Club.
Also included is the previously released digital single “Agit” as well as a remix by Berlin-based M.RUX, toning down the heavy guitar of the original in favor of a more bouncier interpretation.
The stunning “Ikaru” wades in through chunks of jungle ambiance and watery percussion to lounge along on a rubbery funk bassline, coupled with a heavy laid back beat and wobbly derelict synth figures.
“Tawhid” is an odd mix of new wave brilliance and prog momentum that breaks into a cascade of pouring rain and surprising percussion breaks. Lastly comes gorgeous Eastern guitar opus “The True Word of the Wind” and the warm vibey dreamscape “Following”.
As a whole, Islandman delivers a delicate buffet of influences - spanning the spectrum from hazy balearic pop to tropical new age flirts to deep spiritual psychedelic jamming. 


Music For Dreams is proud to announce the new album by Danish legend Dub Tractor. One of the founding fathers of electronica in Denmark in the early 90s, Anders Remmer has remained a reluctant beacon of Copenhagen’s scene ever since, with his musical legacy still a work in progress. As well as being a member of Future 3, Remmer has released material under a number of different aliases, but his most frequent guise dating back to 1994 has been Dub Tractor. Under this name, he gently crafts complex yet warm and organic electronic music that flirts with ambient, dub and IDM.
With “Hello Ambient Wash”, the first Dub Tractor album since 2009, Remmer explores further the possibilities of Dub Tractor after the more pop-oriented & shoegaze-flavoured approach of his last album "Sorry". In addition to new material, the second half of “Hello Ambient Wash” presents a retrospective of hand-picked tracks from his first three albums on Flex Records (the label which Music For Dreams founder Kenneth Bager ran with Ole Mortensen from 1994 to 2007).
Two "Discrete Recordings" tracks from 1994 highlight the atmospheric dub origins of Remmer’s sound, while the two tracks from the 1996 album "An Evening With.." see Remmer at his most accessible and funky. The four cuts from his seminal 2000 album "Delay" still sound as vibrant and fresh today as they did then, and perfectly add weight to this unique collection.
Back on the new material, we see Remmer experimenting further with the style he has become synonymous with. On tracks like "Wow" and “Flutter”, he plays with elements of distortion and layers of sound to create an atmosphere of fragility and nostalgic haze. Loops trapped in reverse over the delicate but intense humming of lo-fi ambient noise create a sense that these tracks could fall apart at any given moment, but still push forward at a cautious pace.
The melodic side of Dub Tractor shines through on the opening track "C8 90", the title track "Hello Ambient Wash", and "A7 94". Coming off as crackly old cassette recordings of some lost Southeast Asian folk music filtered through the high-tech dub engines of Remmer, the sound of the new Dub Tractor proves a heady stew of influences that still sound wholly their own.
“Stay Home” echoes more the shoegaze direction Remmer took on "Sorry" with a melancholic sway which layers ghostlike vocals over muted lingering chords. While on tracks like "SIne Song" and "Ltl" Remmer truly gives cause to the name Dub Tractor, as he ploughs down tight rhythms over sub-bass frequencies and a myriad of trickling effects. Like walking through a dense rain forest of sound, drum clicks stick to your body like moist leaves - these tracks conjure the sensation of a cannabis high or an ASMR episode (google that if you don't know it). Remmer must have tapped into some masterful technology of sine wave manipulation to push the listener into these mind altered states. Bonus info: Nils Frahm is a fan. 


Copenhagen’s Music For Dreams comes with yet another strong release - a double album of personal favourites compiled by Jan Schulte. According to all maps and witness accounts, Germany does not officially have any tropical forests. This is of no concern to Schulte however, who has unearthed many stunning examples of tropical drum music recorded there. Perhaps the number of botanical gardens and palm houses in Germany confused musicians into mistaking the climate, or maybe it was just a happy blend of escapism and multi-cultural integration within musical scenes that spawned such a curious output of undefinable tribal folk jazz. Most of the tracks picked by Schulte were released on small labels in the late 80's. The musicians involved were mainly traditionally schooled, born and raised in Germany. At that time to be interested in foreign folk music might have seemed a gimmick to some, what with the emerging "world music boom" already snowballing into the mainstream. But these songs, while they may be based on musical traditions from foreign lands, deal much more with introspection than exploitation. Schulte himself points to his "general fascination for music that describes places where the artists have never been. Songs about the jungle or the rainforest made by people that know the rainforest only from television and books. Somehow I think you can hear their mythical imagination and fantasy in those tracks," he explains. We certainly hear it in the extensive use of wildlife samples on both "Tagtraum Eines Elefanten" by Argile and on "Wuhan Wuchang" by Total Art Of Percussion. Or on the repetitive and trace-inducing drum circle re-enactments of Ralf Nowys "Akili Mali" and Bob Moses’ & Billy Martin’s "Boat Song Part II". And while Austrian band Sanza stands out with their interpretation of the traditional folk song "Sounouh", many of the inclusions take an avantgarde stance towards their visions of the tropics. The works of Om Buschmann and Trimopen seem to convey the stark and feverish nature of the jungle and its dangers, without relying on clichés. And while there is certainly a European approach in the production techniques on many of these recordings, the artists created something beyond all templates. In fusing folk music traditions from various corners of the world with avant-garde jazz improvisation and a distinctly European sound, they carved out a path of their own. Düsseldorf-based Jan Schulte has been following this path with his own productions in the past years. During the present resurgence of tribal influences in underground dance music, his recordings under the alias Wolf Müller and Bufiman have stood out as the most interesting, funky and mindblowing within this niche. With the compilation "Tropical Drums Of Deutschland" for Music For Dreams, Jan Schulte re-traces this path to its origins. With the inclusion of two exclusive edits he also engages and re-examines these tracks and incorporates his own musical expression into the mix.

Patrick says: Clad head to toe in safari attire, Jan takes us into the imaginary jungles of Europe's heartland with this collection of esoteric and exotic tribal jazz. Essential listening for fans of Jan, Marco and Basso.

That cyberpunk chameleon of styles, Manchester’s pride and dancefloor master Ruf Dug is back on wax on Copenhagen’s Music For Dreams. Following up the first 12” of remixes that came out last year, we once again re-visit the island life of monsieur Ruffy and his debut full length album “Island” (recorded during a sojourn on Guadeloupe).

First up we have Italians on the mix. Hi-jacking Ruffy’s tribute to Wally Badarou, Leo Mas and Fabrice opt to do their own thing: which is churning out a bouncing house belter of their own that bears little resemblance to the original lo-fi synth reverie. Closer to the original then, is fellow Mancunian Andi Hanley’s take on the same track.

Adding sparse percussion and and a simple but effective drum beat, this take seems to simply be an uncovered second half of the original, where it finally takes off for the dancefloor. “Mangrove Dub” is reworked by fresh-on-the-scene Aussie producer Tropical Hi-Fi who creates a brilliant version full of moist ambient textures and reverb-heavy dub treatments. At last but definitely not least, Seahawks turns the whimsical hippie folk ballad “Le Rayon Vert” into a more intense and neatly dressed affair, focusing on the instrumental parts and lifting aside vocalist Nev Cotte’s contribution to the original. Still with a mindful of tropical dreams and the ocean shore close at hand, but in a more introvert Vini Reilly kind of way. Essential package.

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: Like all stone-cold classics, Ruf Dug's 'Island' has had a number of producers queueing up to remix the originals, and here we get the second volume of the outcome. From the thumping house of the Leo Mas & Fabrice remix of 'Thank You Wally' (and it's equally competent doppelganger c/o MCR legend Hanley) all the way through to the stunning Seahawks take on 'Le Rayon Vert', this is a worthwhile addition to the seminal OG. Great stuff.

Nick Mackrory & Harry Collier’s musical partnership dates all the way back to the 90's, when they were both deeply invested in the musical boom in the UK that followed acid house, the rave scene, and the Ibiza experience. Nick went from drumsticks to turntables to studio wizardry; while Harry honed in on his golden voice - which led him to a stint as a singer for Faithless. They found their way back to each other in 2014 and have since developed a sound together that is fresh but not too polished. With touches of 60's chanson coupled with sundazed electronics, their songs linger on like the feeling of a long day spent outdoors in summer. This album collects their previously released singles for Music For Dreams along with exclusive new material and a number of remixes, edits and alternate versions that together form a mesmerizing listening experience. The lazy guitar grooves and samba rhythms of "Tu Sonrisa" that so faithfully revisits the original sound of the White Isle in its hippie days, are here present on melancholic chansons like "The Other Side" and sleepy instrumentals such as "Inside You". They also prove a suitable framing on their cover of the Jimmy Webb-penned classic "Wichita Lineman". But in contrast to their folky fuzzy side, we also get some rather funky explorations into balearic beat with a dub version of "Pen-A-Maen" that bubbles along on a heavy bassline and some wonderful synth strings. "Blue Bird" picks up the pace somewhere between the warm proto-house soul of Maze and the deep house meditations of Larry Heard, with Collier letting his scope as a singer come to full fruition in some rather trippy turns. Other highlights include the rather special version of the classic "Aranjuez" and a new string update of "Elle Dit". On remix duties we get Music For Dreams labelmate 55 Cancri e, who sprinkles her dreamy night time dust all over "Elle Dit" and creates an astonishingly unified blend of their two musical universes. Also lending a hand to transform "Elle Dit" is veteran duo Seahawks, who gently layer it in their cosmicaquatic color palette. Andi Hanley steps in to re-structure "Lucky Charm" into a jazz beat treat by numbers.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: After the beguiling wonder of "Elle Dit", Mackrory and Collier return to Music For Dreams with a long-player of hazy folk gems, swooning country and coastal grooves primed for your next Balearic bliss out...

Silent Riders

I See You Remixes - Inc. Whatever Whatever / Dennis Bovell / Andi Hanley / Kenneth Bager Reworks

Copenhagen-based trio Silent Riders recently wowed us with their immersive neo-gothic full length album debut on Music For Dreams. Now they are back with a remixed package aimed directly for the darkest of dancefloors. Together with some top notch remixers, they are re-visiting their stand out track "I See You" as well as "Shadows", another cut off their self-titled album. First off legendary producer Dennis Bovell lends some of his charms and works "I See You" into a wacky dubbed out groover, skillfully edited down by Mancunian Andi Hanley. No stranger to the flavours of new wave, having produced bands like Saada Bonaire, The Slits and Orange Juice, Bovell brilliantly fuses his dub science with the raw mood of the Riders. Upping the tempo considerably, NYC duo Bryan Mette and Justin Strauss (yes, THAT Justin Strauss!) don their Whatever/Whatever mantle to flesh out the original into a much more hungry club creature, agile and warmer yet with that air of New York cool that really hits you on all levels. Label boss Kenneth Bager himself sits down with the trio to rework the material into a dark brooding extended mix that could easily fit the soundtrack of a John Carpenter flick. Fresh on the scene is HLLW (pronounced 'hollow') who churns out an organic drum'n'bass banger with eerie layers of odd vocal echoes and a gurgling bass rumble. Last up Fellow countryman Kasper Bjørke offers a more leftfield and mechanical approach to the track. Chugging along at 97 BPM, this epic rhythmic excursion unveils slowly and with hints towards the cosmic-minded Germany of the 1980s. Also features a new jam version of “Shadows” - the band themselves take another turn at the track in the studio and deliver a healthy dose of old school electro á la Egyptian Lover and some powerful cold wave chords to underpin the loose vocal performance of singer Lu.

Danish composer The Swan And The Lake is at it again with his trademark widescreen soundscapes wrapped around eight new tracks of exquisite Scandinavian Balearica. With the release of his first album "Moments" last year on Copenhagen’s Music For Dreams, we were introduced to a unique artistic vision. With one foot in the ambient chill out spectrum and the other in everything from classical avantgarde, IDM and jazz, the music of Emil Svane Breum under his alias The Swan And The Lake is both very accessible yet complex. On his new album "Clouds" we see him expand on those same ideas and with seemingly simple means achieve extraordinary strong emotions. Opening side A, the jazzy intro of "Fresh Food" leads us into a sublime piece of hazy ambient groover that could easily be mistaken for a lost 80s production from Japan. "Clouds Over Østerbro" keeps things playfully cool and adds elements of scat singing and xylophones, layered over Breum’s shimmering bright chords. While the title suggests we are still on Danish soil, this feels like a five minute vacation to a tropical paradise. Guitarist Johan Liepstack makes a guest appearance on "Summer In December" which comes off as an understated anthem that could break out into euphoria at any second, but manages to stay in a sombre state all the way through. On the track "Plastic Pacific Ocean Remake" we are visited once more by airy Vangelis-like vocals which assume the role of a nurturing angel, guiding us to a comforting state of relaxation and healing, as Breum lays down an overwhelmingly beautiful synth serenade with chords that hit you right at the core of your most vulnerable state. Flip over for the Mallorca inspired track "Port d'Andratx" which comes in two versions - Part 1 (Sun) shines like a perfect escape into that Cafe Del Mar/ Hostal la Torre sunset while the more deep and melancholic Part 2 is aptly named Rain. The gentle trickling of "Waterfalls" sees Breum mimic the eternal cycle of water, creating an organic and ethereal composition that stretches out seemingly without beginning or end. And finally on "Heaven’s Voice" we see Breum in his most epic and emotional mood, as he steers us through a slow explosive force of cinematic sounds. It all ends with a heartfelt spoken word contribution by guest vocalist Neonbi.

Music For Dreams bossed 2016, and this new signing from Chile keeps their hot streak flaming right through to 2k17. Behind the name Estancia La Mar is a trio of some of the most sought after names on the Chilean music scene. Mario Martinez is maybe the most well-known on the international club circuit with his quirky and fresh take on house under the alias Motivado, also head of electronic label Discos Pegaos and an acclaimed DJ. Pablo Munoz produces music for adverts and TV in addition to sound engineering and producing for some of Chile’s alternative pop acts via his Janeiros Studios. The third name is perhaps the most unlikely of the three, Juan Pablo Abalo, who mainly writes and arranges classical music for orchestras and ensembles, but is also one half of acclaimed electronic pop duo Los Días Contados. This album "Sesiones de Panamá" was born from a live session in Janeiros Studio, and that freeform live attitude is clearly evident in the resulting music. Throughout the six long tracks of the album, the trio build up progressive atmospheric pieces of genre-defying instrumental music that sits comfortably on rhythmic patterns reminiscent of house. As if Pink Floyd had made a Balearic house record in the mid 90s, they forge a crisp soundscape with space for experimentation. At the centre of their musical expression is the clear influence of their hometown Santiago and its surrounding nature, evident in titles like "El Pacífico Mexicano", "Botavara" and "Isla Margarita". Opening track "Botavara" rolls in on a gentle breeze of tropical percussion and floats along on a carpet of new age synthesizers. The epic "La Casa Del Torrero" starts with a shuffling beat and dreamy xylophone melody,before tripping out into a full 11-minute long cosmic synth and percussion jam. The South American feel comes stronger on "El Pacifico Mexicano" with chattery polyrhythms carving out a groove along massive waves of ambience - the transcendental music of Manuel Göttsching comes to mind. With "Isla Margarita" we get the featherlight feel of a Wally Badarou production that recent deep house producers have been trying their best to emulate. For the Estancia trio this comes as no struggle, and across a stunning 10 minutes they make that sound their own. On "Terminos & Condiciones" we find the the trio at their quirkiest. Using a long sample of a telephone conversation between an airline customer service agent and a very angry and confused customer, we are led into an uncomfortable contemplation of life’s stressful situations. Closing track "Polaris" ups the tempo considerably and delivers the album’s most dancefloor-friendly track. Relying on a heavy kick with a smattering of hi-hats, the echoing piano chords send us into a blissful revision of 90s’ deep house that is constantly building in momentum. Limited press - be quick - NO repress. 

Copenhagen’s Music For Dreams continue their string of pearls in 2016 with the 12” release of Apiento & LX’s DISH. At the request of cutting edge Danish designer Trine Lindegaard, Paul Byrne (aka Apiento) created this music to accompany her DISH project - a playful fusion of food, fashion and art - when it premiered at 2016 Copenhagen Fashion Week. For the project, Lindegaard worked with members of integration organization ITMV in Copenhagen to produce clothing items based on their favourite food dishes, Apiento and regular collaborator UK-based house producer LX, used the recorded interviews of their discussions as raw material with cut-up samples of the women’s voices woven into the music for the runway show. The result is an ethereal and avant-garde mix of crisp beats and featherlight percussion blended in a fresh and modern Oriental-flavoured Balearic groove packed with gorgeous flutes and kalimbas. The powerful dub on the flip-side brings a heavier more trippy feel geared firmly for the dancefloor. As well as a string of great remixes and edits as Apiento, Paul Byrne is also well known for his behind-the-scenes work with labels like Junior Boy's Own, International Feel and DEEWEE, and for his highly influential blog Test Pressing.


Att Lämna Tellus (in english: To Leave Tellus) is a journey between the planets Tellus (Earth) and 55 Cancri e. It starts on Tellus with a feeling thatyou might not be where you are supposed to. A search for a peace of mind and a place in the universe where you belong. Travelling through deserts, dark forests, emotions, space and time. Giving up and moving on at the same time. A revelation. An awakening. Suddenly there is no fear anymore and that is when you find love and the courage to start over. Leaving home for another home. 55 Cancri e - a new beginning. 
On her debut full length album for Danish label Music For Dreams, Sara Hausenkamp lets her dreams of space travel come to full fruition. With a steady hand on her guitar, the Swedish artist steers us through the desert at night, through cosmic noises of space, and finally to the distant planet 55 Cancri e. Ranging from melancholic to hopeful, the music of 55 Cancri e is perhaps an expression of Hausenkamp’s longing for a better home planet, and for the possibility of escape. In creating these kinds of science fiction lullabies, she is preparing us for both the beauty and the sadness of a looming future. Using her voice mainly to hum or whistle along, she does however break the silence on a few tracks to sing in her native tongue. On "Rävjakt" she imagines a turning of the tables, where the fox hunters are chased out of the forest by the animals. "Alltid Du" is a tender and straightforward love song that has become the centre of her recent live performances. And on "55 Cancri e I (We Ran Away)" she switches over to English for the first time, where we find her in a slightly different voice. Often working with variations of recurring musical themes, Hausenkamp allows for subtle changes over a number of tracks to create a linear progression that unfolds as a whole in a hypnotic brew of folk-inspired pop. Saturating it all in a glistening atmosphere of both electronic and acoustic sounds as well as samples and field recordings, this album comes as a natural format for Hausenkamp to explore her ideas. 

Jose Manuel

Excursion Africanism

Prolific Italian DJ and producer José Manuel releases his debut concept album ‘Excursion Africanism’ on the highly respected Copenhagen based Music For Dreams label. José Manuel began his DJ career in clubs in Italy at the age of 16 and has since gone on to produce and release singles on esteemed Belgian label Eskimo Recordings, cool Parisian label Kill The DJ and collaborated with others such as Tusk, Wax, Kinfolk, Cocktail D’Amore, Above Machine, and Is It Balearic? On this new double vinyl LP ‘Excursion Africanism’, José Manuel delivers innovative and deeply percussive tribal grooves washed with voices and sounds of the African continent. The album includes the singles ‘Bilimbosa’ with its relaxed percussive guitar groove and stunning vocal delivery from Babacar Dieng and ‘Babylon’ which also features Dieng’s spiritual voice this time fused with a raw voodoo rhythm. Other highlights are the tribalistic and dreamy ‘Macumba’; the chanting ambience of ‘Voices of Africa’; ‘Rain’ - nomadic village chill out with savannah beats and the funky percussive world groove of ‘Congo’. Afrobeat drumming, electronic textures and cinematic accordion become the template for ‘Magic’ while ‘Excursion Africanism Part 3’ is spaced out futuristic roots music for the global generation. The original of ‘Hungry’ is laden with jungle beats, strong bass and repeated afro choir, plus we have a special bonus version - the sublime afro trance dub by Ibiza legend Leo Mas and partner Fabrice. ‘Excursion Africanism’ is a visionary concept album written, produced, and arranged by José Manuel that succeeds in combining a sense of Balearic beats, world music and Afro acid within a template of space disco.

Copenhagen’s Music For Dreams release a special vinyl edition of the first ever artist album from Ibiza legend DJ Pippi. Entitled "Bocadillos Variados", the ten track double LP showcases Pippi’s own style of soulful Balearic grooves and quality global house. Highlights include the funky new Ibiza summer anthem "Cristal Palpita", Balearic underground hit "La Serenata" recorded with Kenneth Bager, the Grace Jones influenced "Make U Smile" with Tuccinelli and stunning soulful track "So Beautiful" featuring Barbara Tucker. The LP also features contributions from producers and musicians J.L., Victor Martin (Eurythmics) and Ibiza luminary Cesar De Melero. Originally from Italy, DJ Pippi got his break in Ibiza when the management at Pacha heard one of his mixtapes back in the early 80s. He has since become synonymous with the rise of Pacha and Pippi has worked two different eras at the club. The first stint was between 1984 and 1987, the second started in 1991 and continues to this day. He spent the intervening years as resident DJ at the openair club Ku, now Privilege. After 30 years in Ibiza, Pippi is now an island institution and this summer can be heard in residence at Pacha, Jockey Club in Salinas, Santos in Playa D’en Bossa, and also playing Glitterbox at Space. Pippi’s previous recording successes have included house anthems The Original "I Luv U Baby" and B-Tribe "Fiesta Fatal", both worldwide dance hits. This debut LP sees the DJ and producer drawing on that lifetime of experience to deliver a true representation of the Mediterranean sound.

Sil says: Music For Dreams reach out to a true Balearic legend for this latest release, inviting longtime Pacha resident DJ Pippi to take us on a journey through the diverse club sounds found at the heart of the White Isle.

Doctr

Tropique - Inc. Kenneth Bager Edit

Every once in a while a record comes along that defies any sort of conventional explanation and transcends today’s numbed-out consensus beats - “Tropique”, the latest offering on Copenhagen’s Music For Dreams is one of them. Cosmic disco, neo-Balearic, retro-Italo-futurism – get as creative as you like trying to peg it but one thing is for sure, Doctr’s “Tropique” is undoubtedly an excellently crafted tune, an irresistible crowd-pleaser. As if magically appearing from the untouched realms of electronic music, the soundtrack to some quirky, exotic floating party at the centre of the Bermuda Triangle, “Tropique” is a simple concept, a seemingly innocent loop which rolls along and sneakily picks up more effects with each rotation. The production is near faultless, perfectly structured and fine-tuned to draw the maximum drama out of its infectious bass and tasty keyboard hook. Its creator? Well, little is documented about the producer who simply goes by the name of Doctr, but it’s clear that he operates to the beat of his own drum and knows how to rock a party with rollicking flair judging by the dubby yet joyous vibes he brings to this eclectic and high-sprited offering. “Tropique” sounds like its gestation was characterised by years of crate-digging and wild, balmy nights. Having played only a handful of acclaimed shows so far, it appears Doctr is that rare find; a crowd-pleasing DJ whose musical skills trump his proven ability to move bums.
‘Tropique” is the tune this summer’s been craving and will no doubt become virtually inescapable throughout 2016 and for years to come - a future classic for sure.


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Music For Dreams take a house excursion with this piano driven terrace tonker from Doctr. Hedonistic shizzle which comes backed by a Compass Point styled rework from Mr Bager himself.

Ambala

Calypso Beach

    Continuing a fruitful, fifteen year relationship, Phil Mison is back on Music For Dreams with brand new collaborative project, Ambala. Recorded with Danish musician and engineer Volmer across a series of weekend sojourns to the scenic streets of Copenhagen.This vinyl three tracker is a teaser for a full album of Ambala magic slated for release just before the summer kicks in. First track "Calypso Beach" showcases a new direction from former Cafe Del Mar DJ Phil Mison - classical house with West Indian vibes - a hooky steel drum, live bass, dreamy pads and an irresistible melody make a winning combo. Flip over and there is another twisted tale "High Line...", a funky organ-driven groove wrought out of old school drum machines and soulful keys. It's hypnotic Balearic for warm summer nights. EP closer "Bambari" is a slow African chugger complete with chanting voices. Three choice cuts - pick your favourite! More quality Mediterranean output from that man Mison aka Cantoma aka Ambala.

    For 19 years, Cafe Mambo has been hailed as the place to be on the sunset strip in San Antonio, Ibiza. With an unrivalled reputation built via great guest DJs and the world famous sunset. The family behind Cafe Mambo love great, chilled out down-tempo music and in 2013 they entered into a new relationship with Music For Dreams honcho Kenneth Bager, the legendary Balearic, ambient and techno DJ / producer, who exports his Balearic delights from his native Copenhagen to Ibiza for this double CD compilation.

    The compilations opens with rain forest ambience from John Heckle and goes on to include everything from opera by Maria Callas, cinematica from Johann Johannsson, a Balearic chugger by Mudd & Pollard, Ramadanman's post-dubstep rework of Jamie Woon's "Night Air", deep house from Jacob Gurevitsch, Buggles' 80s Compass Point style electro-reggae and Richard Hawley's echo-drenched Americana. Where ever you are - sofa surfing, sitting by the ocean, in a forest, driving or gliding in the skies - this double CD takes you through a musical journey of sunset material of the highest calibre…

    Ruf Dug’s debut album "Island" was released to much acclaim in 2015 on Kenneth Bager’s Music For Dreams imprint. It sold out its first promo run within weeks, delighted our Balearic customers and bagged the #15 spot in our End Of Year review. Now for 2016, Ruffy has picked some of his favourite artists to rework his tracks and this is the result. I'll leave the talking to Ruffy...
    "When Kenneth asked me to make the album he always had the plan that we would get some remixes done of the tracks. From an early point in the album I was thinking about who I'd love to remix the tracks, and this represents the first part of some serious wish fulfillment! Peaking Lights' music I adore; I had the luck to play with Aaron a while ago and we got on very well. It was a total thrill when he agreed to do the remix. I made "Speedboat" in part as a tribute to (i.e. ripoff of!) the PL sound so there is some very nice symmetry to the remix. Al Breadwinner is an incredible dub producer from Stockport, not far from my house at all. He has an enviable all-analog hardware studio and is constantly producing dubs. He was the very first person on my list to do remixes - "Rasta Beach" is the most Reggae-ish track on there and to hear it after it's been through his rig is really something. 2814 have emerged this year - a duo who I still haven't met in real life, they transformed the Vaporwave landscape earlier year with their debut album, showcasing incredible compositional tunes. Here they have taken "Tendacayou" from the hilltop spa and dropped it firmly in a dark cyber dystopia, and it sounds all the better for it. K-BAG is the man who makes it all happen, the man with the master plan. He sent me a mail and asked for the parts to Dominica a while back. He's taken Dominica and turned it into the ultimate sunset soundtrack... from Cafe Del Mar to the Louisiana museum, this is one to send out over the waves when the sky is turning orange...”

    Music For Dreams release their first vinyl of 2016 with the debut of Nick Mackrory & Harry Collier. Late one night label boss Kenneth Bager was surfing the net and found "Elle Dit" – he immediately fell in love with the track and signed the duo. Their first outing for the Danish imprint showcases their distinctive blend of electronic and organic acoustics with a very Balearic twist. Mackrory began his musical career as a drummer before embracing electronic music during the early UK rave scene and branching out as a DJ, producer and percussionist. More recently he’s been running labels Forgotten Corner and Colona with fellow producer Phil Banks. Vocalist Collier has previously recorded and toured with Faithless as well as successfully writing and performing with his own band Kubb. This new collaboration sees both artists on top form with Mackrory’s productions providing beautiful backdrops to Collier’s uniquely stripped back, honest and emotional vocal performances. "Elle Dit" gives a perfect example of the Balearic duo’s timeless Burt Bacharach songwriting stylings and is a bitter-sweet ode to the breakup of a rather Kafka-esque love affair. It has been heavily featured on Ibiza Sonica and gained support from former Cafe Del Mar Resident Phil Mison. "Tu Sonrisa" continues the continental theme with Spanish lyrics made up by non-Spanish speakers Mackrory and Collier "so please forgive us if it doesn't make much sense! We think it's about drinking margaritas on a beach, chatting to a beautiful señorita, with the sunshine filtering through the leaves of the palm trees!" The instrumental has been getting strong support from Manchester’s Moonboots. Finally ‘Pen-amaen’ is an epic piece of jammed Balearic madness - inspired by the local Cornish coastline that hosts the sunrise where on certain mornings a mermaid can be seen silhouetted against the sky.

    Copenhagen’s Music For Dreams continues its run of great releases with a tasteful 12 inch from label boss Kenneth Bager who presents four on-the-money remixes of his single "Sunshine Stereo" taken from forthcoming album "Follow The Beat". Currently enjoying heavy rotation on P3 (Denmark’s answer to Radio One), this summery anthem gets makeovers from Denmark’s Jazzbox, Greek duo Bonnie & Klein and from Mr Bager himself who teams up with Napoli-born producer extraordinaire Tuccinelli to give us not only a superb extended vocal mix but also an on-fire dub version of the track that’s sure to be a future classic both for the Balearic brigade and all lovers of funky downtempo dubbed-out weirdness. Treading the same territory as the fabulous Frankie Knuckles’ ‘Hallucinogenic’ mix of "Ain’t Nobody", this dub is full of tricks, teasing and pleasing the dancefloor and already getting strong support from Moonboots, Amnesia legend Leo Mas and Danish DJ Peter Visti. Elsewhere Jazzbox deliver a great uptempo beach boogie version full of soul and groove making great use of the unmistakeable voice of Damon Scott, known for his work with Storm Queen, while Bonnie & Klein produce a very special percussive jazzy dub mix. The pair are on a roll at the moment and this remix with its warm marimba vibes creates that Mediterranean vibe we all love. A real sun-soaked winter warmer, this 12” feels like a knitted sweater in the cold! Limited vinyl.

    Copenhagen’s Music For Dreams delivers another strong package with the debut from Danish artist Emil Germ. A sensitive artist overflowing with creativity and personality, he comes across like a mix between Arthur Russell /Royksopp meets Vini Reilly but stands firmly on his own feet combining falsetto vocals, beautiful guitar playing, and powerful keyboards with slow disco grooves: "I just play and do what feels natural" says Emil Germ. This Music For Dreams 12" features two tracks from his forthcoming album "Adult Party" - first single "Tease and Burn" is already gaining international recognition - on the playlist of 28 international radio stations and getting support from the likes of Yam Who, Ame,, French Rivera, DJ Nori etc. - while "Give" is another quality slice of slow disco with pop sensibilities - a very catchy groove and an irresistible melody line that will creep under your skin and stay there for months. On the remix tip, Messalina edit maestro Lucci Capri delivers a housed up Larry Heard inspired remix of "Tease and Burn" with a great jazzy sunset feel and looped guitar hooks - essential for lovers of the White Isle. Athens-based duo Bonnie & Klein take on remix duties for "Give" and the result is a modern Chic/Talking Heads style affair not far from Erol Alkan’s recent remix of Kindness. Emil Germ has recorded new David Byrne-esque guitars  especially for this mix, which alongside the repeated saxophones and a superb breakdown make this a serious dancefloor contender. A great introduction to the hotly-anticipated new album. 

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Patrick says: Ahead of his forthcoming LP, Music For Dreams' latest signing Emil Germ hits us with this tasty 12" sampler, pairing a couple of his Arthur Russell meets Vini Reilly originals with a sunset house remix from Lucci Capri and a Chic-esque interpretation from Bonnie & Klein. Already selling like hotcakes so act fast.

    Copenhagen’s Music For Dreams continues to fly the flag for Balearic madness with this high quality four-tracker. EP opener “Charité” is the result of a jam session between two young Danes, Mads and Frederik, and seems certain to be a future classic, with demand building since its first plays on label boss Kenneth Bager’s Ibiza Sonica radio show. A deep and dense Balearic groover in the style of Max Berlin (yes that good!), the track combines French spoken vocals (mais oui, bien sûr), Spanish guitars, floating bongos and a warm bassline into a rich and heady cognac groove. Legendary Balearic pioneer Phil Mison heard an early mix and his exact words were "This is good, no, this is really really good!", and you can't argue with Phil. Mads Dalholt pops up again on Side B in collaboration with fellow Danes Dj Zimino and Dj Djek for a spot of "Balearica". This groovesome number does what is says on the tin as a smooth and rolling bassline, 70s Hammond keys and deep and mysterious voices create an incessant groove, bringing together various styles and influences in a hippie spirit. Closing out each side in sublime form is Troels Hammer, a composer and piano player whose debut LP is soon to be released on the label. Here he previews two short compositions from that LP, "Azur" and "Birdy", which both ooze that melancholic sunset vibe we just about remember from the golden Cafe Del Mar era.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Patrick says: Finding the middle ground between Max Berlin's 'Elle Et Moi' and Yves Simon's 'Raconte-Toi', Dalholt & Langkilde perfectly nail the windswept sleaze of a swarthy lothario on 'Charite'. Whispered French vocals and open-shirted guitar licks top a cognac-smooth groove in this record bag staple.

    Brand new wax from Denmark’s acclaimed Music For Dreams imprint featuring two artists new to the label - Bonnie & Klein and Coyote. Hailing from Greece, Bonnie & Klein debut with three impressive cuts including future sunset classic "Total Blue" - already receiving maximum support from the likes of Moonboots and Phil Mison, this gentle summery melody conjures up perfect Cafe Del Mar moments with its dreamy pads, lush keyboards and beautiful accordion. Also "Coral" which follows the same route - another sunset chill-out gem with a Mental Generation/ Double Fantasy feel - and finally "Demode", a great bass-heavy slo-mo White Isle dreamscape with gorgeous flute. Also making their first foray onto Music For Dreams are Is It Balearic? dons Coyote with the superb "Gitarra", a flamenco/ Spanish guitar-laden, percussion-driven chugging monster of a track with huge Balearic dancefloor appeal.

    Music For Dreams label head honcho Kenneth Bager is back with a sixth outing in the "Luftkastellet" CD compilation series. Featuring a selection of Balearic house, cosmic disco, downbeat grooves and twisted psyche-dance gems, the set includes the likes of Aeroplane's all-conquering mix of Grace Jones' "Williams' Blood", Edwyn Collins wonderful "You'll Never Know (My Love)", remixes by DJ Disse, Pocketknife and Mungolian Jetset and more.

    1. Edwyn Collins - You'll Never Know (My Love) (Ashley Beedle's We Love You Edwyn Edit)

    12 Shantel - Disko Partizani

    Kenneth Bager's back with a second "Luftkastellet" compilation, this time tracking the club / event's musical development in 2004. Joe Dukie & DJ Fitchie's "Midnight Marauders" opens the show on a melancholic reggae tip, followed by beats from Flevans, some global sounds (including Shantel's eastern European "Bucovina"), deep house (Trentemoller, Losoul and Hessismore on the mix) and a general mixed-up Balearic vibe.

    This is the fifth volume in Kenneth Bager's "Luftkastellet" compilation series, and brings us another fine genre-spanning selection from the Music For Dreams co-founder. As you'd expect from MFD, the set opens with some typically Balearic dreaminess from Deep Dive Corp and Reverso 68's mix of Badly, as well as downbeat outings from Liv Lykke and Ikon. Moving up through the BPMs, there's a great edit of the Doors by DJ Disse, lush electro-disco-pop from Roisin Murphy, some electronics from Delia Gonzales (Carl Craig rmx) and Trentemoller.
