Following his acclaimed debut album, Troubled Mystic, and its remix companion, Night Train Vacancies, this new collection displays Simon Order’s ongoing mastery of melodic, transportive electronica. Befitting its title, The Dreams has a hypnotic feel, its pristine sonics rendered uncanny by subliminal details. Track titles such as ‘Beach Fair’, ‘Angels of the Sea’ and ‘Fish Don’t Have Arms or Legs’ offer suggestions of the aquatic vibe of the release, with sonar pings and synth pads washing in and out as samples of submerged voices nag at the subconscious. Whether it’s the driving bassline of ‘Stranger Things’, the dream-pop guitars and skanking piano on ‘Man is Part of Nature’, or the thick synth arpeggiation on the closing track ‘Time Lapse’, The Dreams takes great care to offer up waves of lush dreamtronica.
Liminal Drifter is Dr. Simon Order. Under the ’90s moniker of dUB Rumble, Order worked as a producer and instrumentalist in the UK until 2005, when he landed in Western Australia and eventually resurrected his musical life as Liminal Drifter. His debut album, Troubled Mystic, was released on Hidden Shoal in 2015. The track ’Soothed By Summer’, taken from Troubled Mystic, landed in the top 10 of the SBS Chillest 100 in 2016 alongside artists such as Massive Attack, Moby, Air, Sebastien Tellier and Ella Fitzgerald. His remix album Night Train Vacancies debuted at number 14 in the NACC US college radio Electronic Chart and stayed in the charts for over 2 months, regularly landing in many stations’ top 10. In his other life, Order is an academic at Perth’s Murdoch University, where he teaches and researches radio and music technology.
