Saving the Dream



“I have a dream… and I’m saving it”

We need to have dreams and never stop doing it. This place is where my dream became reality, and somewhat unexpectedly ended. Or let’s say, the dreams been put back to sleep —  Some day, some time, there it will be again, that feeling, that energy, and will be happy for saving it — Never stop dreaming. Peace!

Submitting your Music

SUBMITTING YOUR MUSIC — Since 2020 the world has experienced strange, difficult, dark and crazy times. Musicians have been ‘locked-down’ like every other human being and have created a lot of music. Oh yes! Several albums that were made during that time still find their way to our inbox and artists ask me to listen and consider airplay on the show.

There are certainly fantastic albums out there and they sound professional and full of hope with a lot of ‘light’ in it! ✨There’s also a lot of albums that sound rather dark. Dark ambient, dark times, uncertainty, sad feelings and quite a few of them are not about the light whatsoever. Forgive me for saying what I’m about to say and I hope you do understand:

The dark music that reaches us – the deep down sad drone dark ambient – will not make it to the show. This has nothing to do with your skills or your music production itself. It’s about the choices I make: I want to play music in the podcast that is about Light, Positive thinking, Hope, Good Energy & Love.

Sound explorations and ambient experiments that make us feel curious, SPACE and intrigued. Sometimes mystique, sometimes a bit random, but always a useful guide. Music about new times, better times, new initiatives, opportunities, beautiful themes and wonderful spacescapes ????

Music that reflects such themes can count on a high ranking and big chance it will be featured on the podcast! After 3 years of difficult times and the unthinkable worldly situation, I feel it’s time to put that period into the archives. Never to be forgotten of course (!) but not to be played and replayed time after time on the podcast. We’re ready for the NEW!

I hope this decision makes sense to you. At least I hope! Feel free and share your new tracks / upcoming releases with me in the Ambient Zone???????? I’m more than happy to check it and who knows … I can feature you!! ☀️ ???? ✨

The Heat and the Cypriots

In Cyprus , I ask myself: why aren’t there any sunshades attached to flats, houses and windows in general ? In The Netherlands we have plenty of those in all kinds of colours: it helps to keep away direct sunlight, it helps to prevent a room / building from warming up and have too much bright light coming in. In Cyprus I have not seen those. While the heat is extreme and rooms are quickly heated to a 35C and higher. Obviously, Cypriots prefer switching on the AC and let the device do the hard work and rob their bank account. “Oh…we put up some curtains, that will do” type of thought. Something I will probably never understand. 

sunshades everywhere in Holland

Is it because they don’t know about proper sunshades? Is it they don’t know how to install them? Perhaps the concrete won’t hold? That’s another topic – haven’t seen proper concrete anywhere that lasts longer than one year. So yes, that could be part of the issue. Cracks appear everywhere and some parts of the road have been repaired a hundreds times while the same holes and cracks keep coming back.

15.06 Wishing Well

Welcome to the Wishing Well… here you can dream or say what you wish for, some wishes come true, you know, others are kept safe for later in life perhaps.

And if a wish comes true, music can even reinforce, consciously or unconsciously ; it creates a soundtrack we’ll  never forget. Stronger than any fact. Deeper than we thought. Music that we heard at the time of intense changes that – to this day – had a major impact on our lives. That same music may well have been responsible for the feeling that comes to us now, the impression we have, the happy times, the sad times. 

Dare to look back, dare to accept, even if the truth now is not what it seemed before. The music didn’t lie. 

Today’s show is featuring : Ayo, Nicholas Gunn, David Helpling, Ferndance, Lab’s Cloud, Sverre Knut Johansen, Robert Rich, Andrew Heath, Nathan Speir, Stellardrone, Pete Namlook, Lorenzo Montanà, Sinius, Willebrant, The Broken Cradle, Biosphere, Deathprod.
