OLDIES SUNDAY: Alwin Reingoud – “Sweet Dream” (1981)


Happy Sunday! Ready to get into some Old School vibes? Today, we’re gonna give you something different. For today’s Oldies Sunday selection, we head over to Suriname to check out Alwin Reingoud’sSweet Dream“!

Produced by Ricardo Tjon Akon and released through Tjonna Records in 1981, we get some Disco Funk vibes on “Sweet Dream”. During a time when other parts of the world wanted Disco to die, the Dutch West Indies showed that they could keep the vibe going with music that kept the people rocking. “Sweet Dream” possessed great production, lyrics, and melodies that the listener can’t help but dance to. “Sweet Dream” was described as a “Disco Killer“, and gained popularity thanks to various DJs playing it. As far as we know, “Sweet Dream” is Alwin Reingoud’s first of two releases, and it was included on a collaborative LP featuring Roy Ooft, and a “Boogie and Disco Funk” compilation. It gained some attention recently on TikTok, and has been considered a rare groove. Ready to boogie? Time to press play.

Thank You Alwin Reingoud For This Classic!
