Soundtrack to the End of the World (lamadameaveclechien records)

I'm quite late with this. I have this release for a while but I only thought of posting about it now (shame on me because it's a really nice comp)

I discovered  "Soundtrack to the End of the World" while going at MAPP. Store
The compilation and accompanying art work was going to be revealed during a vernissage there.
I arrived way before the vernissage started and, actually, I fell in love with one of the artist's cover work (Claudia Chiaramonte) before listening to the music.

This limited edition Cassette compilation  (with download voucher)  has been released by Lamadameaveclechien, a very interesting Belgian imprint (I believe it is run by DJ SoFa). Soundtrack to the end of the World containsintricate electronic tracks from in house artists sent to the label between 2002 and 2011.
Go take a look on the website. Some cassettes are still available.

Puro Instinct - Dream Lover

<3 <3 <3

Dream Lover
Dream Lover

One quick glance in your brown eyes
is like starin' at the sun
on the brightest afternoon
of summer in heaven

From the island of Eleuthera
to the streets of Kino Bay
I could spot a gem like you
from a thousand miles away

Dream Lover
Dream Lover

Wish that you could be all mine
but I'll take what I can get
Cuz I'm a fool 4 your love, baby
And my mind's already set

Anywhere I tell myself I'd rather be
Baby, you're already there
& When they try to tell me it's a fantasy
Baby, you know I don't care

& when the Lagos sun sets
on my weathered weary soul
your beating heart gives me hope for tomorrow

Anywhere I tell myself I'd rather be
Baby, you're already there
& every time I catch their eyes rollin' at me
Baby, you know I don't care

Dream Lover
