Dom Thomas presents Dreams of San Antonio

Brutal Music

Released: 25th November 2011 | 12 track worldbeat album
OVERVIEW
The term 'Balearic' when attributed to musical style often leaves the most ardent music aficionados scratching their heads in a confused sweat. Attempting to sum up an infinite set of sounds from disparate backgrounds and eras is no easy task. The original manifesto of what makes something 'Balearic' is a loose definition: there are no rules, anything is everything below 122BPM.

Dom Thomas embarks on his fourth Brutal Music sonic adventure, celebrating the ambiguity of the genre to craft a sublime personal journey through his own skewed vision of the Balearic sound. A fantasy trip through Balearic Beat, Bongo Rock, Acid Disco and Far Flung Folk. A misty-eyed look back to the embryonic days of Pacha and Cafe del Mar married with dreamy images of Barbet Schroeder's '69 Ibizian paean 'More'.

DOM THOMAS BIOGRAPHY

Through his cross-continental club night 'B-Music', Dom Thomas has travelled the world twice over supplying Psych-starved mods, b-boys and misfits throughout the world with his unique brand of unidentifiable cosmic slop. An ardent, assiduous B-Music crusader - whose love of obscure, obsolete, deleted and delectable experimental vintage Pop music and graphic design has sparked a vibrant record-stall, dance floor and sub-cultural uprising, this Manchester beat-freak spear heads an infectious, impetuous campaign that champions long-forgotten way-out sounds...

His unquenchable pursuit of digging for re-found sounds begun in 1999 when he and partner in crime Andy Votel launched Wandys World a head nod to the Warhol template of the Exploding Plastic Inevitable and the party scene in Midnight Cowboy. Creating a momentary psychedelic haven for bored indie kids, house heads and hip hoppers who were looking for something new to submerge their eyes and ears in. This gradually developed into the genre defining 'B-Music' moving from bar to club, country to country, pulling in A-/B+ pop-celebrity fanatics of outsider music and ultra-rare bakelite discs.

During the last decade of eye-watering DJ sets and eye-popping visuals B-Music has developed into a global scene with events in every corner of the world. In 2005 with co-collaborators Andy Votel and Doug Shipton he formed the much lauded re-issue label Finders Keepers. Their flagship release saw Jean-Caude Vannier's holy grail 'L'Enfant Assassin Des Mouches' album unleashed on an unsuspecting public. Setting the benchmark for the future releases, it embodied Finders Keepers' ongoing ethos of paying absolute attention to detail and musical workmanship. Creating an 'accidental world music label' with a punk aesthetic and DJ friendly ethos, allowing the desperate listener to sit back and enjoy schizoid cultural channel-hopping compilations and rocking-horse-shit re-releases in the comfort their psych-starved living rooms.
