Dreams’ music video community is thriving lately. At the centre of it all, you’ll often find venwave’s work: original beats or collaborative remixes, and often eye-popping visuals grooving alongside them. So what makes this creator tick? Find out below!
What do you like to do in the Dreamiverse?
I think most people would recognize me for music, but I equally enjoy both the music and paint tools <3
If you could give other member of the CoMmunity a piece of advice for their time in Dreams, what would it be?
Take my advice with a grain of salt, as I am just a person on a couch making wiggles with a DS4. I think giving yourself too many rules when creating is counter-productive, and honestly kinda miserable. If you have a vision, please stay true to it, but also give yourself the freedom to make things up as you go along. More often than not, people will not care or notice if something isn't "realistic" - they will only notice if it is not believable. So whatever you make, believe in it, and don't let the 'plan' stop you from creating.
What was the first thing you created in Dreams?
The first thing I created in Dreams was a very short, humble, rock ‘n’ roll type music loop. It's not the most impressive thing out there by far, but it is the first time I ever tried making rock music ever, and I have only Dreams and Mm to thank for inspiring me to try.

How can people find you in the Dreamiverse?
All you gotta do is remember the name "venwave" ! If you search venwave in DreamSurfing, you're likely to find the collaborations that I've been involved with - usually other talented Dreamers' games or stories that I helped with. If you look at my profile, you're more likely to find the music that I've made. :)
Which creations are currently your Top 10 in Dreams?
This one's hard, but I will preface by saying - if you're looking for good music in Dreams, there's no place better to go than itsallstar's weekly Dream Sounds streams on Twitch. That is how I've discovered half of this list!

Who’d you like to get to know in the Dreamiverse? We’ll ask them some questions for next month’s newsletter!
First of all, thank you Mm and Beatlebum for including me this month, it's an honour! There's nothing like Dreams or the people involved with it - being a part of this is very humbling. <3
To be honest I feel I've gotten a lot of attention just for being creative, and I am immensely grateful, but there is one particular creator who not only inspires me and makes that creativity possible, but moved me emotionally and kept my humanity in tact throughout all of last year. I share half of an Impy nomination with this beautiful person and it's only fair that you all get the chance to hear from them and see for yourselves how special they are. MasherButtons, the spotlight is yours my friend! <3
