Recorded in Denmark in 1986 by the then up and coming afro pop singer Kojo Antwi from Ghana, the tunes were issued in limited numbers as he was leaving Denmark, sparking his international solo career after he left the Classique Vibes. Though a popular favourite on cassette in Ghana his debut album was only released in small numbers in Europe and never achieved the same attention. The tracks selected here showcases Kojo’s transition from the highlife sound of the Classique Vibes to the more drum machine driven highlife disco on ‘Hini Mi’ as well as the deep, computerized reggae on ‘Emeribi Be Ba’.

Tropical Drums Of Deutschland

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
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 "generalfascination 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 Buschmannand 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 thesetracks and incorporates his own musical expression into the mix.
Prins Emanuel - Diagonal Music

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
The young virtuoso producer Prins Emanuel follows up his acclaimed debut album on Music For Dreams with something quite different than what we’re used to hearing from him. While Arbete & Fritid was an epic odyssey into the furthest corners of disco with an array of studio wizardry and complex rhythms, Diagonal Musik is a sparse and delicate exploration of the acoustic guitar. Steering away from his comfort zone, the Prins follows his intuition for experimentation and lands somewhere in a field of genre-defiant folk-jazz meditations; a development that fits like hand in glove for the eccentric nature of Music For Dreams.

Genre:Electronic / Dance
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.

For the second in its new special collector series, 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. The result is the exquisite “Moments In Time”Moonboots has been a fixture of the Manchester scene since the Balearic boom in the late 80s. He runs the prolific vinyl label Aficionado Recordings together with fellow DJ Jason Boardman, a project that started out as a Sunday 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 on this album, 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 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 but here extended by Salta to six minutes instead of two.Aside from digging through the outputs of Aficionado affiliates, Moonboots also unearths 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!”Many of the selections have never previously been available on vinyl, 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 released on CD. The same applies to 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 Von Salkeld.

"The Best record I have heard in the last 10 Years" Moonboots (Aficionado)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 numerouslocal 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 Phil Mison and Manchester’s Moonboots who declared it "the best record I have heard in the last 10 Years!" Don’t miss...

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.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Copenhagen based Music For Dreams release the debut album of Mackrory and Collier.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 cosmic-aquatic color palette. Andi Hanley steps in to re-structure "Lucky Charm" into a jazz beat treat by numbers.

Music For Dreams are on a roll in 2016, and this new signing from Chile is no exception. 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 engineeringand 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 chatterypolyrhythms 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.

Music For Dreams continue their high profile string of releases with this double album of dark pop brilliance from Danish newcomers Silent Riders.Apart from their names - Lu, Gee and C - little is known about this mysterious trio who wear masks during live performances. Emerging from some unknown murky world, materialising from the shadows in the woods, they have created a mythical sphere accessible only through their music - a vision of electronica that is organic and alive with both warmth and danger.Led by the sultry voice of Lu, we are drawn into the dark imaginings of the Silent Riders with almost cinematic brilliance as Gee and C man the machines that weave the atmospheric dronings of their world - a world that could be easily mistaken for one created by David Lynch or Tim Burton. The rhythms that form the path to this domain remind us along the way of previous travellers such as Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire or Tolouse Lowtrax. With the opening track "I See You", Silent Riders offer up a brilliant pop diamond combining all elements of their distinctive sound palette. Lu’s soulful voice bounces off almost funky drum machines, all drenched in layers of dark analog ambience. On the lush "Copenhagen Dream", Lu channels a sense of brit-pop nonchalance into a political song about the state of her city. In contrast, "Being Afraid" sees the band in their hardest grittiest mode - with Lu reminiscent of PJ Harvey at her most moody and the slow groove behind her like a factory machine beating and releasing steam. Other highlights include the chilling "Static" and the ethereal beauty of closing track "Falling" which sees the Riders in their most relaxed and dreamy state, and echoes the works of Portishead and Massive Attack. A stunning debut - limited vinyl release - don’t miss.

Danish label Music For Dreams releases another winner with the debut album from Danish artist Emil Breum aka The Swan And The Lake. "Moments" showcases Breum’s talent for creating exquisite and sensitive soundscapes whose timeless atmosphere echoes contemporary classical composers as well as some of the more New Age-minded artists of the Berlin School. Although mostly known as a spiritual movement, New Age also spawned a musical ideology that lives on past the clutches of cults and communes: a purity in sound, and a longing for music to reflect the sounds of nature. "Moments" captures this essence perfectly, its compositions seeming to suspend time and prolong a sense of clarity, like staring out over a beautiful landscape at sunset - both a sobering and healing experience.Opening both sides of the album are collaborations with guitarist Anders Brandt who provides a beautiful groove alongside Breum’s motionless ambient states and "Dive" has become an established favorite in many DJs’ sunset playlists in Ibiza this summer. Also included is Moonboots’ (of Manchester’s Aficionado) pick "Moments of Lost Swans", a gorgeous modern Balearic track full of melodic marimbas. Another highlight is the string-based "Bright Lights" which plays out in in three parts - an electronic intro glides into Breum’s moody piano chords and finally drops into an emotional string ending that feels like a cross between Michael Nyman and Nils Frahm. The New Age upbeat feel of "Waiting For Spring" gives it the air of a forgotten Cafe Del Mar classic - emotive keys, reverbs, marimbas, pianos make a memorable and unique track. Breum also supplies the photo for the front cover of the album, an image borne of his desire to capture special moments of day and night, just as he has done with the mesmerising musical landscapes on this stunning debut. Limited vinyl edition.

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.

Music For Dreams proudly presents the brand new project from Ibiza legend Leo Mas. Sonic Friends Of The Galaxy is a joint venture with regular parter Fabrice and DJ Rocca who have teamed up to deliver future Balearic classic ‘Adamo & Eva’. This 12” features four very different versions of the track and first up is the floor-friendly ‘Paradiso Mix’, created by Leo, Fabrice and Rocca together - a velvety groove with a sax reminiscent of 808 State standard ‘Pacific State’ and a jumpy deep bass, perfect for moon elevation. Followed by two Leo Mas & Fabrice mixes - the midtempo almost esoteric ‘Es Vedrà Mix’, a moody Ibiza creature, and the gorgeous ‘On Air Mix’ with all elements floating in space with only few rhythmical touches, a moment of pure bliss. Finally, Rocca’s ‘Original Sin Mix’ is a stabby, oscillating acidic beauty. Get your hands on this limited vinyl before it disappears into a Galaxy far away ...

Music For Dreams are proud to present the latest vinyl sampler of ‘Mediterraneo - Rare Balearica Vol 1’, their Leo Mas curated series of sought after Italian goodies! Leo Mas says: "This third sampler of my ‘Mediterraneo’ compilation opens with ‘U (I Dig You)’ by Chrisma, a cover of ‘Who’ by Odyssey, a project from 1974 that saw Vangelis collaborate with Richelle Dassin and Robert Fitoussi and which only ever came out on 7". It was covered twice in 1977, once by Chrisma and also by Demis Roussous, with his ‘I Dig You’ version. Chrisma's cover was produced by Niko Papathanassiou, Vangelis' brother, and the version I choose is the Extended, found on side A of the original 12", a sexy and nocturnal funk disco suite that I love.“The second track on side A of the sampler is ‘Clouds Over Thin Paper’ by Faust'O from his album ‘Love Story’ that came out in 1985. Faust'O is a great borderline artist, original and innovative, a true rebel. His first productions from the late Seventies have a sound between Berlin Bowie, Joy Division and the first dark new-wave.“On the B side, I choose ‘Blue Light’, a track by Giorgio Li Calzi ft. Marconi Union. Calzi collaborated in his career with artists like Wolfgang Flür from Kraftwerk, Alexandre Balanescu and others and for this track he worked with Marconi Union from Manchester, true makers of a minimal English ambient sound, who also worked with Jah Wobble. ‘Blue Light’ is an emotional track with a great dreamy atmosphere that I loved at first listening, simply beautiful. With my partner Fabrice we did a version of ‘Blue Light’, the Androids Dream Remix. We chose this title because while working on it memories of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner came to us!", finishes Mas. Limited vinyl - don’t sleep.

A three tracker from Copenhagen’s Music For Dreams and an unusual new house direction for this normally chilled/Balearic label, but all 3 tracks still have that definite White Isla feeling. James Moor’s ‘Spirits’ is an irresistible funky track in a Ten Walls vein, perfectly blending melodic bass with dark emotive elements - a killer for the dance floor. Electronic artist Hess is More's classic ‘Yes Boss’ (more than 9 million views on You Tube) is here revamped by Serge Devant with a very groovy b-line and mad vocals creating that after-hours DC10 feeling and already getting support from Jamie Jones. Born in Ibiza, Valentin Huedo is former resident DJ at Cafe Del Mar, now resident at Blue Marlin and this release is his debut for Music For Dreams. ‘Running On Grass’ is all flowing pads, rolling beats and a beautiful little melodic hook with spot-on production and an Innervisons feel. Sounds great on the dancefloor or on headphones - a true testament to Huedo’s versatility. Limited edition.
