Dreamers Delight (Reed Krafft) will be playing at Okeechobee Music Festival TONIGHT (Thursday Night at 12:30 am.) BlogTheNoise was lucky enough to have some questions answered before he gets onstage.
CindyBTN: What lead to the name Dreamers Delight? Is there a meaning behind the name not many of your fans know?
Reed: The name Dreamers Delight comes from my experiences with dreams, and lucid dreaming. My hope is that people who are active dreamers – in their conscious and unconscious states – may find a connection to my music. For those who may not dream as much, I hope that I can help inspire them to more through what I’m making.
CindyBTN: Which track was your favorite to work on?
Reed: My favorite track to work on was “Around”. I was traveling while I was working on it, and the experience I had translated into the track really well. Travel is a definitely a huge influence behind my music, as it is a big part of my life – I think the way “Around” came together was a really great example of how much an experience can create.
CindyBTN: Do you have any motivational words you can give to those who are starting in the music industry?
Reed: Stay hungry and stay humble.
CindyBTN: Should we be expecting any new releases or surprises at Okeechobee Music Festival?
Reed: Lots – I’ll be playing a bunch of my new tracks at both of my Okeechobee sets this weekend! Come hang out, we’ll be having fun here:
– Thursday (3/2) @ 12:30am – Incendia
– 2nd Set TBA
CindyBTN:Where did the inspiration for your newest track “Illuminate” come from?
Reed: “Illuminate” was originally a track that had no vocals, but Cammie [Robinson] ended up sending me a few cuts and it came together perfectly. She was a pleasure to team with on this track, especially ahead of her newest release with Flux Pavilion. I’m sitting on a fair amount of new tracks continuing into 2017, and am definitely excited to share where the future of my music is going.
Dreamers Delight just released his most recent single – “Illuminate ft. Cammie Robinson”
– while also announcing a number of tour and music festival stops this spring. The track speaks volumes to the evolution of Dreamers Delight – combining Krafft’s crisp, sophisticated production; remarkably catchy future-bass melodies, builds and drops; and the entrancing vocals of Cammie Robinson – and should on any electronic / future music savant’s radar.
Dreamers Delight released his freshman and sophomore EPs under Gramatik’s United States/European-based label, Lowtemp Records, and embarked on his first national tour in Fall 2015. In the short time he has been touring, he has performed at major music festivals such as Coachella, Electric Forest, Lightning In A Bottle, Camp Bisco, Vertex and more; has joined internationally-touring artists Big Gigantic, FKJ, Sound Remedy, Break Science, Emancipator, and others on several US dates; and has also shared the stage with artists such as Diplo, What So Not, Rüfüs Du Sol, 12th Planet, Mimosa and more.
Krafft has garnered a significant following online, amassing over 4 million combined streams on Spotify, Soundcloud and YouTube between his original productions and remixes. His most recent collaboration with Pretty Lights Music artists Break Science demonstrates the ethereal electronic production that flows from the soundscapes of Krafft’s music, and provides the listener with the smooth synths and dreamy ambiance signature of a Dreamers Delight track. “Dreamers Delight… weaves a middle road between reality and a transcendental fantasy – beautiful, uplifting and euphoric,” says Magnetic Magazine.
