© Island ManHaving closed out 2017 with an album from Greek artists Bonnie & Klein, Music For Dreams starts 2018 with an album release from Turkish producer, artist and musician, Islandman...

For his first full length outing on Music For Dreams, the previously released digital single ‘Agit’ is included as well as a remix by Berlin-based M.RUX, toning down the heavy guitar dirge of the original in favour of a more bouncier interpretation.  
 
For the most part, the tracks that make up ‘Rest In Space’ keep a steady pace of around 90-95 bpm and the journey Islandman takes us on across these ten tracks is a rich and ever surprising one, full of quirky turns and mysterious instrumentations.
 
Opening with ‘Rest In Space’ we are treated to a funky percussion-thick rhythm that lounges into a pool of playful & jazzy horn & flute arrangements. This is followed by the epic ‘Night Wind’, which sweeps across cinematic desert landscapes of synth layers and falls into a dark night time groove reminiscent of Nicolas Jaar & Dave Harrington’s Darkside project.
 
Seikleos’ centres on a motorik electronic rhythm pattern (not unlike the classic electro-pop moog classic ‘Popcorn’) that develops into a chugging Balearic house jam, topped off by an occasional flute melody and some distant chanting.
 
The stunning ‘Ikaru’ wades in through chunks of jungle ambiance and watery percussion to lounge along on a rubbery funk bassline, coupled with a heavy laid back beat and wobbly derelict synth figures.
 
‘Tawhid’ is an odd mix of new wave brilliance and prog momentum that breaks into a cascade of pouring rain and surprising percussion breaks.
 
While mostly offering instrumental tracks, stand out track ‘Future Days’ brings in a female guest vocalist to complete the album with a breezy full-on groover that echoes of both Sheila Chandra and Tom Tom Club.
 
As a whole, islandman delivers a delicate buffet of influences - spanning the spectrum from hazy Balearic pop to tropical new age - that flirts to deep spiritual psychedelic jamming.
 
The Copenhagen-based Music For Dreams label continues to be at the vanguard of the ambient revival as well as being at the forefront of the Balearic, chill, and space disco movements. MFD generated an excellent string of releases in 2017 from some of the most eclectic and inspired artists. Artists making waves for the label include Jan Schulte, Ruf Dug, Be Svendsen, Copenema, Nordsø and Theill Apiento, Jose Manuel, The Swan & The Lake, Ambala, Oscar Bandersen, DJ Pippi, Leo Mas, Visti & Meyland, Mackrory & Collier, Bonnie & Klein and label boss Kenneth Bager.   
 
Music For Dreams is releasing Islandman ‘Rest In Peace’ on Friday 12th January 2018 on digital and stream.
