DREAM SEQUENCE - LOVE IS A MINEFIELD (Sounds like the 80s)

Hello and welcome back.... New music from Electronic outfit 'Dream Sequence' with the track 'Love is a Minefield' (This is the instrumental version)

With hints of Frankie Goes to Hollywood, The Cars and even The Eurythmics (The middle 8 section synths were done in 3D setting, similar to the track 'Ball and Chain'.. A good set of headphones is recommended) ... This, I Think, is Dream Sequence best work to date.

This track is free to Download for a limited time..

A vocal version will be released soon..

Awesome sounds.

KEN DAVIS (IQ) - UNIVERSE IN TIME (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back.... I have been a huge fan of Ken Davis music since the late 80s.

After leaving school around 1987, I brought my first camera and ventured into the world...

During the late 80s (88-89) I traveled around several places in Sydney ( Darling Harbour, Circular Quay, Australia's Wonderland) and even World Expo 88, Brisbane QLD... Just about every weekend in Sydney, this guy surrounded by Synthesizers was belting out these songs, I loved it, so raw, so much energy...That guy behind the Synths was 'Ken Davis' and even 40 or so years later, he is still going.



Going back to 1985, Ken Davis was in a band called 'IQ' (ex The Hush) and spawned a few hits, one of those tracks was the very futuristic "Universe in Time", recorded for TV show 'Sounds' with Donny Sutherland.

Another awesome track called 'Life in Tokyo' originally known as 'Pop Song' (written by Ken Davis)

KEN DAVIS (IQ) - LIFE IN TOKYO



Later towards the 90s and beyond Ken Davis has made a name for himself creating music for the Soul and Mind... New Age / Relaxation sounds using Natural Wonders of this world... check out the links for more on this amazing artist and composer.
