about

The music of Brooklyn's Dream Circle is a spiritualized, genre-bending journey into electronic, house, hip-hop, dub reggae and African music. For fans of of artists such as Santigold and Massive Attack who enjoy conscious lyrics, their debut album, “LOST ART” released on their label Unemployable Music, features space-hopper Johnny Voltik dropping his unique blend of soul on “School of Life”. On “You Remind Me,” Dominican poet and songstress Stephanie Morillo’s dreamy vocals glide over tabla drums and take the listener to another dimension. The album's other standout tracks are "So Many Things", "Dark Star, "The Hurricane" and the dub reggae infused "Original".

Dream Circle was formed in 2011 and consists of band members Katy Walker (lead vocals, keys, production), Joel Mejia (drums, production) and Nikkie Bliss (vocals). The duo are married and currently reside in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. Walker, who is originally from Austin,TX, met Mejia, the second generation Dominican and Bronx, NY native, while producing a music video and playing for another band. Their chemistry was inevitable, and the two were compelled to collaborate together after the band parted ways.

“I am extremely grateful to have received these messages of universal love and consciousness,” says Mejia about their first collection “LOST ART”. “It may sound esoteric, but music is magical. It doesn’t come from a place that we typically have access to unless we open ourselves up. We did just that and received this music. We wanted it to uplift people and have a vibratory effect on them. It’s not casual listening, but active listening,” he adds.

Dream Circle also performs as trio on the east coast and incorporates video art, live percussion, synths, and loops into their live performance.

we’re made from star dust
just as merlin and moses
once lived in a world of magic
we are living in a world of tragic thoughts

flowing directly from the source
we’re the children of the law of one

the children of the law of one
once a stranger
living in a strange land

war is yesterday, war is yesterday
you don’t lose until you give up
so you, so you fall gracefully

war is yesterday, war is yesterday
you don’t lose until you give up
so you, so you fall gracefully

remember how you faced the ups and downs
dont’ forget its people that run the system
you got in over your head
let them burn all our sacred wisdom
burn all our sacred wisdom

Track Name: Dreams
they visit you in your dreams
are more what they seem
seeing from someone elses eyes
we remember past life times

hold on tight, now let go
its the cycle of the soul

at night you work work in an altered state
to stop the arms race, destroy their power base
there's no stopping you from making a breakthrough, a break through
no concept of time, just the urge to become aligned
with the true sense of the unconscious mind
you're safe here among friends, where the candle burns at both ends

hold on tight, now let go
its the cycle of the soul

without dreams there's no reality
without dreams there's no reality

no need to pigeonhole the mystery
divide our tribe, try to tame the divine

deny our own immortality

they visit you in your dreams
are more what they seem
seeing from someone elses eyes
we remember past life times

hold on tight, now let go
its the cycle of the soul
Track Name: You Remind Me Feat. Stephanie Morillo
we're always searching
for greener land (for greener land)
time and space they go
hand in hand (hand in hand)

and when you touch me, when you touch me
everything, fades to black
and when you kiss me there’s no turning back

and when u hold me
and your close to me
thats when i feel you
thats when i hear you
thats when i do right
thats when i know its right

cuz when u know me
and you show me
that you love me
thats when i know, i see
that youre the one
your the one for me

there is no end
to our desire to fly
there are so many ways
to get high
lose ourselves into to the sky
(you remind me)
(you remind me)

you remind me
of that moment
that special moment in time
when we swam through the sea
and the salt stung your eyes
and i wanted to die in your arms
like thats old song, that silly love song

but only time will tell if this is heaven or hell

and when u hold me
and your close to me
thats when i feel you
thats when i hear you
thats when i do right
thats when i know its right

cuz when u know me
and you show me
thats you love me
thats when i know, i see
that you the one
your the one for me

there is no end
to our desire to fly
there are so many ways
to get high
lose ourselves into to the sky
(you remind me)
Track Name: The Hurricane
do you feel the hurricane
feels like the worlds gone insane
the undeniable change
here comes the rain
here comes the rain

will we ever change our ways?
will we ever change our ways?

here she comes the future shock
oceans rise above the mountain tops

ooh ooh

i see multiple ripples in a pond
that go on and on and on and on

people come together, people come together, people come together,
people come together, people come together, people come together

people
come together
people
come together

do you feel the hurricane, feel the hurricane
feels like the worlds gone insane
the undeniable change
here it comes the rain, here it comes the rain

will we ever change?
will we ever change?

will we make the change of mind
in time to raise up
open up the gateways
synchronize with nature
synchronize with nature

Dark Star, She knows who you are
you can’t hide, she’ll find you down in a reservoir

Dark Star, She knows who you are
Dark Star, She knows who you are
you can’t hide, she’ll find you down in a reservoir

She knows who you are, knows who you are

she swam the seven seas, got down upon her knees
the truth is what she really seeks
you can’t hide, she’ll find you down in a reservoir

Dark Star, She knows who you are
Dark Star, She knows who you are
you can’t hide, she’ll find you down in a reservoir
Dark Star, She knows who you are

you can’t hide, she’ll find you down in a reservoir
you can’t hide, she’ll find you down in a reservoir

you see in black and white
you say its wrong or right
so many searching for the way
all they seem to do is pray

you see in black and white
you say its wrong or right
but time is on your side
the truth is in between the lines

She knows who you are, knows who you are
She knows who you are, who you really are
you don’t have to go far to find who you are
Track Name: Patience
Patience, I wish you were here
Patience, I wish you were here
im running in circles consumed by my fears

You’ve left me for India
on your way to Peru, through Tibet, Brazil, Africa, I see you
sipping hot tea in ancient cafes,
learning about the mysteries of their ways
While I work for something
That means nothing to me
While I work for something
That means nothing to me
Its only temporary by any means
Necessary you’ll come through
down the tunnel of my mind
channeling all you’ve learned
through infinite space and infinite time

Patience, I wish you were here
Patience, I wish you were here
im running in circles consumed by my fears

two steps forward, three steps back
three steps forward two steps back
two steps forward, three steps back
three steps forward two steps back

the monkey mind is in a race against time
Patience, I wish you were here
Track Name: Space Born
Shining with brightness the star of the morning
living forever a child of the light
master of mysteries sun of the morning
master of mysteries sun of the morning

there in my heart grew a great longing to
conquer the pathways that led to the stars
free from the body I flashed through the night
far into space my soul traveled freely
into the circle of light

flashed forth my soul thru infinity’s beauty
far into space i flew (with my thoughts)
strange beyond knowledge were some of the planets
strains of harmony filled the air
I rested there on a planet of beauty
our bodies are nothing but planets revolving
deep in the silence of space
of space
far in the past man conquered the ether
formed in their mind, only a picture
swiftly created it grew

a son of the sun, truly space born
a son of the sun, truly space born

just as the stars lose all their brilliance
light passing from them into the source
the soul passes onward
leaving the darkness
into the circle of light

a son of the sun, truly space born
a son of the sun, truly space born

speaking with music, singing with color

a son of the sun, truly space born
a son of the sun, truly space born
