Dreamcatcher – Dreamcatcher
After 10 years of writing music for television, Dreamcatcher was David’s first album. These were early days of combining sampled vocals with danceable rhythms, and this album holds up as one of the best of its kind, described by listeners as “global music, beautiful ethnic sounds and voices, mixed with cool western beats and textures”. Sheila Chandra gave rare permission to use her sampled voice in ‘Ice’, and Wasis Diop provided the male vocal in the duet, ‘Falling with You’.
‘In an Ocean of Joy’ was used in a TV ad for Covent Garden Soup, and ‘This is The Time’ was adapted as the theme tune for a programme about hiking through Britain’s countryside.
A beautiful album – music to chill out to…
