Review: Music for Dreams, the label founded by Kenneth Bager, sets out its stall for the 2019 summer season. It's no surprise that Copenhagen 2019 is a chilled out, unhurried affair. Starting with easy listening pieces from Mike Salta and Phil Mison - the latter's acoustic guitar-led "Morning Lights" is particularly memorable - it moves into low-slung disco courte-sy of the Cheapedits take on Copenema & Thomas Volmer Schulz's "Serei Sei" and the MOR-esque guitar on Rayet's "Marie-Ange" It's sometimes a challenge for chill out compilations not to veer into the wallpaper music category, but Music For Dreams avoids this conundrum with Kojo Antwi's Afro-funk and Djosos Krost's wonderfully dubbed out "That's My Woman".
Review: Denmark's Music For Dreams continues to provide fine, off-kilter deep house by the truckload, and this new single from Drumpoet Community's Willie Graff and Darren Eboli is a lovely flash of sun-kissed dance music to bring the summer months in. "Love Flight" is an aptly dreamy wash of gentle house beats, while "First Light" expands further out into the ether. "Second Sun" brings in a lush, warm bass that gets the groove on the funky side, leaving "Moon Tan" to bubble gently in a pool of tropical percussion jingles that could easily be left on repeat. Nice stuff from both label and artists!
