NightWaves - The Dreamweave Hour 2

"We first thought of the genre/lifestyle etc of dreamwave back in August of last year. It was never meant to become a part of alternative music consciousness, it just seemed to fit some of the sounds we were hearing coming from the coasts of LA and France. The more we talked, wrote, and thought about it, the more it made sense to us. We are all a part of a collective of music lovers, people who spend significant chunks of their lives searching for the next album that will make us feel like we do when we listen to any song off of Daft Punk's Discovery. Dreamwave is just an extension of that search. We all love hitting a club and dancing to bangers as much as the next kid, but realistically, we're into this kind of music to fall in love with great songs. In its purest form, thats all we really think dreamwave is. Taking modern dance production techniques and forms, and applying them to classic, great songs.

When people hear this music, we always hear the same keystones... Sun, the beach, palmtrees, young love...

Hopefully as you listen to this you hear the same things. This is meant to be a mix you can listen to anywhere. Driving to the beach to kick off the summer. Kicking back with a cocktail on your back porch. In a dark bar while you're huddled into a booth with someone late into the night. This really should work anywhere, anytime."
