2017 / Kenneth Bager / Music For Dreams / Part 1

There was an insane amount of activity from Kenneth Bager`s Music For Dreams in 2017. Remix packages from Ruf Dug, Bongo Entp. and Laid Back. Albums from Dub Tractor, Islandman, Mackrory & Collier, Silent Riders, Swan And The Lake, Troel`s Hammer, and Visti & Meyland. With Nordso & Theill releasing record of the year, based on the polls / “best of” lists I received. While Jan Schulte`s Tropical Drums Of Deutschland and Moonboots` Moments In Time were contenders for compilations of the year. Like Midori Takada`s Through The Looking Glass, Tropical Drums Of Deutschland shifted an amazing number of vinyl units for these modern times. MFD has a couple more compilations lined up for 2018. Watch this space for news. 

The digital only (for now) Copenema single was one of my “Balearic Beats” of 2017, and a full album will be with us in the next twelve months. There will also be new albums from Troels Hammer, Jacob Gurevitsch, The Swan And The Lake and Islandman. Plus music from Willie Graff, Darren Eboli and new signings Aleceo and Aussteiger. A collaboration with Ruf Dug and Dennis Bovell is just waiting to be mixed. 

MFD will also be assisting with the “Twenty years Of Aficionado” celebrations by joining Moonboots & Jason Boardman for an extended session at Love International. 

Here are some of the things that moved me in 2017.
