Dream Weapons

Handpicked obscurities of all genres from every corner of the globe by Sadhu Sadhu, Prabha Devi and Moahaha from Dream Weapons.

Episode 10: Once Upon Now!!!!! - 13/08/2019

Spiritual world jazz poetry grooves, some eastern tinged psych, epic spaghetti western suspense, a trio of modern/trad Brazilian tunes and a funeral march. Nothing new from Dream Weapons - except this time the music is in fact brand new (or five years old at the most)! Seems like there’s actually some talent out there still (a joke). Enjoy!

Episode 09: Polyhymnia - 07/06/2019

A Prabha Devi (☾︎) / Moahaha (♌︎) collaboration without any real plan or concept that turned out like this: Taking off in a sort of festive African, Arab & occasionally South East Asian mode. But eventually slows down and finishes off with a quartet of ethereal folk and sacral choirs that comes with a goosebump-guarantee.

Episode 08: Sunward - 26/04/2019

Exotica tends to get lumped into the easy listening-section. But although a thing of beauty its often got a remarkably eerie and dramatic atmosphere. A lot of «serious music» is surely an easier listen… Anyway to spice things up a little extra in between all the hip beach and jungle-soundscapes I’ve managed to dig up seven wondrously exotic vintage songs for you as well. If you dig this stuff even half as much as I do, you’re in for a real treat!

Episode 07: TVEKLANG - 22/02/2019

Ten vintage analogue electro/acoustic (but not electroacoustic) tunes of shimmering beauty and dreamlike moods to set your mind adrift. Primarily.

«Tve» is Norwegian and means two-or double but as a split… like the forked tongue of a snake. Klang is similar to reverb, but the latter can’t be used in a context such as «complimentary colors forms a harmonious tveklang» - so its not exactly the same. But most of all I think it just sounds and look right for the content of this mix.

Episode 06: Xmas Delights - 17/12/2018

For years now I’ve been certain that I scraped the barrel for quality yuletide tunes the previous year. But no -  there's seemingly no end to these xmas-gems if you know how and where to look. Here’s an hour of mostly folk, latin and lightly jazzy seasonal oldies. Starts off (and ends) on a somewhat (beautifully) serious note but it gets all the more festive throughout. I’ll leave you with this call from A Christmas Carol:
 «Drown sorrow in a cup of wine, And let us all be merry!»

episode 04: mouth of truth

On our forth mix for 20ft Radio, Moahaha and myself traveled the corners of the world in search for the mouth of truth. Our journey took us, among other places, to the buddhist monks of the ancient temples in Japan, the frosty north to visit the Sami people of Russia, warm persian nights sprinkled with lovely serenades, both to Mongolia and Altai Republic for some deep rumbeling tones of throat singing, out to the sweedish sea side to the sound of crisp folk tunes and to Haiti and its haunting Vodou and rural themes. Mouth of Truth is a sombre mix focusing on the bueaty of song and the ocational sparse instrument backing showcasing spirituals, folk, choral, a cappella and sacred songs from all over.

episode 03: curtain call

A murder mystery thriller-horror movie (with lots of nudity)-soundtrack. So here's an hour of dark grooves and stunning melodies just like in those classic 70’s giallo-films. This mix is partly made from nicking killer tunes from largely forgotten B-movies - in combination with some library music-favourites + a couple of cinematographic songs that just seemed to fit in perfectly.
