    ILLUSION OF SAFETY started in Chicago almost 30 years a
    go with their vision of
    dark & morbid atmospheric industrial music and soon
    became one of the
    inventors of what was then called 'Ambient Industria
    l', the marriage of these two
    very different styles & approaches. Since then, IOS ne
    ver 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 90's before it became a w
    ell-known notion) and noise
    (and only imagine that JIM O'ROURKE started his caree
    r 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 agai
    n mark a very unexpected
    change: SWEET DREAMS is an almost 'psychedelic' record, u
    sing many
    incredible acousmatic sounds deriving from field re
    cordings, instrumental sources
    (such as acoustic guitars) and synths, which build
    together repetitive pulsing
    patterns & hypno-loops that suck you in. But IOS would
    n't be IOS if it weren't for
    surprising breaks, cut-ups, crackling sounds and ot
    her interferences.... To us, this sounds like 70's
    psych-space tunes
    transformed by today's experimental & compositional
    consciousness..
    Three pieces, 22+ mins, mastered by THOMAS DIMUZIO, 5
    00 copies pressed on beautiful & unique 3-colour (gr
    een,
    blue & white) vinyl & with artwork by Berlin-based des
    igner TILMANN BENNINGHAUS. Release date: Oct 25, 2012.
