Music For Dreams signal the summer with the debut LP from Ibizan royalty DJ Pippi and Willie Graff. The latest bounty from the Danish label’s long and fruitful relationship with the White Isle, Follow Your Dreams is a twelve plate tapas packed with the assorted styles and flavours of the Balearic sound - a complex blend delivered with a warmth, feeling and tone which bring it all together as a whole.

Collaborating on and off over the past fifteen years, with resulting singles gracing the likes of Compost, Leng and Archipelago, DJ Pippi and Willie Graff posses a unique combination of Balearic heritage; one an Italian export who helped originate the sound and style of the genre through his legendary DJ sets at the likes of Pacha and KU in the eighties, the other a trailblazing talent born on the island, who started his residency at Pacha in summer 2000 at the tender age of 17. Their intergenerational entente speaks to Pippi’s unyielding passion for sonic progression and the musical maturity of Graff, as well as a shared love of the soulful side of the musical spectrum. Now, along with a host of friends, collaborators and fellow members of the Music For Dreams family, the Ibizan duo deliver their finest work to date.

Their debut LP kicks off with the titular “Follow Your Dreams”, which hits the road with no jack, moving to a mellow Mediterranean swing as lithe flute and warm brass dance around the arch vocal. The effortlessly funky “Stimulation Dub” follows, the duo working with Paul Powell to establish an unhurried Compass Point groove before spacious keys send the track soaring skywards towards el cielo. The collaborations continue with MFD All Stars Charlotte Caluwaerts (Rheinzand) and Jacob Gurevitsch lending their talents to the sensual single “Piel A Piel”, while Reinhard Vanbergen (Rheinzand) brings a psychedelic touch to the arabesque “Bridge To Oran”, a beautiful journey from Es Canar to Algeria. Spaced out from the hash of the hippie market, the duo enter the astral plane on “Twilight”, reconnecting with Scottish singer Clarita De Quiroz, whose wordless vocals sit perfectly beside cosmic chord progressions and tender guitar to create a mystic mood.
