Weirdest Dream is a new project from Stockholm-based Daniel Fagerstrom and Luciano Leiva, experienced producers who have previously starred - individually, and as part of other outfits - on such labels as RVNG INTL and Permanent Vacation. This outing on Dopeness Galore marks their collaborative debut. It's a wonderfully atmospheric and quietly colourful collection of tracks, all told, with the duo teasing undeniably spacey and evocative sounds out of a collection of vintage analogue synthesizers and drum computers. Stylistically, it's something of an inspired and hard-to-pigeonhole mish-mash of Tangerine Dream motifs, sparking Steve Moore synthesizer chords, hazy acid lines and bustling Motor City futurism (albeit twisted into decidedly Balearic new shapes).
