Review: Copenhagen's Music For Dreams returns with the next installment in their acclaimed Sunset Sessions compilation series. Expertly curated by label chief Kenneth Bager, Sunset Sessions 10 features top-shelf balearic material from both established and up-and-coming artists. Highlights come from Troels Hammer on the glassy-eyed and bittersweet sunset vibes of "Infinita" (feat Clara Valente), The Swan, The Lake & Rosebud get seriously lo-slung on the poolside antics of "Respect The Vibe", Bager and Anders Ponsaing take you on a breezy, sax-fuelled night drive down the coast on "Greece 2000" (feat Claus Hojensgard) and the ever reliable Gerd Janson delivers a typically neon-lit disco anthem with his remix of The New Age Orchestra's "Let's Dream Together".
Review: Music for dreams, memory or the rainforest lounge, the Danish label are the ones to finally wrangle Kenneth Bager for 'the' official reissue of Let's Dream Together. Originally put out in 1989, and dug up out of obscurity by Young Marco and the Redlight Records crew to popular appeal in 2013, The New Age Orchestra sees a new light of day. Said to be deeply inspired by Manuel Gottsching, this record is full of classic Bager sax-action, new age piano keys, Korg MS-20 moon landings and watery field recordings. With the original recordings born in a backyard studio in the heart of Copenhagen, you can get your doses of electro-disco-drum-tracks of the time in "La Llegada De Los Tambores (part 2)", next to some housier beats in "Let's Dream Together (part 4)" alongsde more ambient sessions like "Epilog (part 5)" & "Momento Del Sol (part 3)". And for everything in the one place - dive into the 40-minute-long session of "The Dream (The Full Satisfaction)". Let's dream!
Review: Danish chill out legend Kenneth Bager turns in a ninth Sunset Session on his most esteemed Music For Dreams imprint. In the game for some 20 years now, Bager's compilations are something to be trusted and highlights this time come from Lucci Capri's down and dirty "Boom Boom Clap" and the syncopated rhythms of SIRS remix to Bongo Entp. Soulful touches of jazz make it into the deep house affairs of Pepe Link's "Gypsy Love Affair" and amid the bassline mechanics of "Man With The Red Face". But let's not forget the man Kenneth Bager himself, who chips on with an ambient edit to Laudness' "Atlantish" - think 80s soundtrack music - next to the handpan drumming, balearic vocals, electronic drum programming and spanish guitar of "Avisa A (feat DJ DIVO & OliO)". Ole!
