Horizons Music label boss Neil Monteiro gives us the factual rundown of their latest various artists album Dreamthief 2.
1. With the Triad + Synth sense track ‘Past Present Future’, the vocal sample is a recording from one of them. Plus, the entire track was done without Triad + Synth ever being in a studio together.
2. Linden’s ‘Letting Go’ was the final track chosen for the album, and at just over 3.5 mins, is the shortest track ever to be released on Horizons. From start to finish it’s a track that has attention to detail, and makes a haunting end to the Dreamthief 2 project. Linden’s got a lot more to come on Horizons, quality not quantity eh?
3. The name Dreamthief came from a competion we had in 2008 for the name of our album for Dreamthief 1. Got lots of submissions, but in the end to put it politically, none of them suited. In the end I had a flash of inspiration and came up with the name myself, not sure how it came about, so i suppose it’s not much of a story! But Dreamthief 2 didn’t take long to come up with, this time round..
4. Jubei remixed June Miller’s ‘Drowning Man’ for the album but the original track actually featured as INSIDE011, the B-side to ‘Nine’. Inside Recordings is a sister label of Horizons Music.
5. Need for mirrors ‘Shackles’ was a vinyl exclusive on DreamThief2. Not available on CD, or digital until the 22nd July.
