The Dreams Mix (Part 2) (2021)


Dreams, what are they made of? Why do humans dream? We aren't the only creatures on this Earth to dream, but why do we dream? And why can't I, most of the time, remember what I dreamt about? And why are dreams so short? It is such a magical thing that I can't understand how it works, and why we experience it, but sometimes you just have to accept that things happen, and you will never understand the meaning behind it. It can be a magical thing, or a complete nightmare. Yeah, that raises another question: why do we have nightmares? Don't we 'suffer' enough when we are awake? Why be tormented in our sleep too?

You might be wondering why I am talking about dreaming, right? Well, Selectabwoy is back with a new mix, all focussed on the concept of dreaming. Well, that's not strictly true, but you will know why. Technically speaking, the songs are all brilliant anthems, but they have got dreams in the title, or refer to the concept of dreaming. But don't you worry: it's not something that will get you asleep easily. Maybe it might get you more relaxed, more mellowed out. But the bass and melodies will certainly keep you awake.


In short, he took some records that contain the word 'dream' or any variation to the word 'dream', and made a mix of all those songs. And now I'm sitting here, at 7am, blasting out the mix at max volume, and I feel good. I feel relaxed. I feel so damn good inside, and I am just sitting in my office, WFH. Who would have thought that life could be so great?


All jokes aside, whatever Selectabwoy does, turns into gold. It is true. His Soundcloud page is the one I visit the most, as it's got tons of excellent mixes, and it's the variety that I appreciate. Big Drum and Bass mixes? Yes, he's got them. Jungle anthem driving mix? Sure! Birthday mix for his missus that contains Rap/Hip Hop anthems? You've guessed it, he's got 2 of them!


He's one of the most prolific DJs on Soundcloud, hence why every so often you will find a review on my website of one of his mixes. He's just so fucking good. Hence why I voted for him, hoping he would appear on the DJ Mag 100. Unfortunately, he didn't. One day he might. We can all just hope and dream about it happening...

This is certainly a mix focussed on dreaming/dreams. Look at the titles. Most of the songs do contain the word 'dream', or a variation to this word. And the age of each song in this mix ranges too: the oldest is from 1992, the 'newest' is from 2021. So are treated to everything dream related.


It's like this mix is the ultimate dream catcher. I remember, as a kid, I would have a dream catcher hanging above my bed. It never worked, but the thought was there, when my dad purchased it.


This mix is as good as you wanted it to be. And I know you wanted to hear a good mix today. I am telepathic. Or pathetic, whatever word it is you think of right now. But at least I'm here to inform you about this mix made by Selectabwoy, one certainly worth a listen. Or, once you've listened to it, you might even dream of Selectabwoy. Whatever floats your boat.


I really enjoyed this mix. It's a nice relaxing mix. Doesn't get in your face at all. It's like a pillow that embraces your face, and becomes your friend for the next few hours, while you dose off to dream land.


A solid mix. He always delivers, doesn't he? Another wicked mix, and I really like the concept of this mix. It's different, and I like it! More of these sleepy mixes please, mr Selectabwoy!


Best record? Well, I do like both the opening track and the closing track. So, those are my favourite ones.
