Music For Dreams release their first vinyl of 2016 with the debut of Nick Mackrory & Harry Collier. Late one night label boss Kenneth Bager was surfing the net and found ‘Elle Dit’ - he immediately fell in love with the track and signed the duo.

It has been heavily featured on Ibiza Sonica and gained support from former Cafe Del Mar Resident Phil Mison. ‘Tu Sonrisa’ continues the continental theme with Spanish lyrics made up by non-Spanish speakers Mackrory and Collier "so please forgive us if it doesn't make much sense!

The instrumental has been getting strong support from Manchester’s Moonboots. Finally ‘Pen-a- maen’ is an epic piece of jammed Balearic madness - inspired by the local Cornish coastline that hosts the sunrise where on certain mornings a mermaid can be seen silhouetted against the sky allegedly...
