Music For Dreams / Denmark / 2019 / 2LP
For Music For Dreams’ collector’s series, the Danish label aim to bring us something a little different, something a little out there.
After eclectic contributions from Jan Schulte, Moonboots and most recently Basso, they now lend the slot to Belgian sonic globetrotter DJ soFa.
As always, he’s been granted supreme curatorial sovereignty, and the man held them to that one. For "Elsewhere Jr I", soFa takes us on a trip to the alluring and magical reality of childhood - and a trip, it is.
The double LP features both new and old compositions from a wide range of countries, all centered around the youngest citizens of planet earth. The compilation has been 2.5 years in the making, with soFa collecting obscure pieces from all over the world and inspiring young collaborators to produce new tracks mostly by means of analogue synthesizers and vintage drum machines. The result is a thematically and sonically homogenous collage of cosmic children’s music.
