ILLUSION OF SAFETY started in Chicago almost 30 years ago with their vision of dark and morbid atmospheric industrial music and soon became one of the inventors of what was then called 'Ambient Industrial', the marriage of these two very different styles & approaches. Since then, IOS never failed to surprise their listeners, going through many musical changes with various live members using elements of improvisation, electro-acoustic music,sound collages, sublime drones (especially in the '90s before it became a well-known notion) and noise (and only imagine that JIM O'ROURKE started his career as the 19-year old live guitarist of ILLUSION OF SAFETY!). We are very happy IOS (at this time mastermind DANIEL BURKE only) recorded pieces for our special concept 10" series that again mark a very unexpected change: 'SWEET DREAMS' is an almost 'psychedelic' record, using many incredible acousmatic sounds deriving from field recordings, instrumental sources (such as acoustic guitars) and synths, which build together repetitive pulsing patterns and hypno-loops that suck you in. But IOS wouldn't be IOS if it weren't for surprising breaks, cut-ups, crackling sounds and other interferences.... To us, this sounds like '70s psych-space tunes transformed by today's experimental & compositional consciousness.. Three pieces, 22+ mins, mastered by THOMAS DIMUZIO, 500 copies pressed on beautiful and unique 3-colour (green, blue and white) vinyl and with artwork by Berlin-based designer TILMANN BENNINGHAUS.
