The electronic music group Tangerine Dream has released more than one hundred albums, singles, EPs and compilations since the group was formed in 1967. Tangerine Dream's releases have been divided into several eras based on the record label of the time. Tangerine Dream's first releases were on the Ohr label.
The Dream Mixes is the first remix album by Tangerine Dream and their fifty-second overall. The album is a collection of extant Tangerine Dream songs remixed with a dance beat by Jerome Froese and is the first in a series that includes TimeSquare – Dream Mixes II (1997), DM3 – The Past Hundred Moons (2001), DM 4 (2003), DM . (2007), and DM V (2010). In 1996, the album was re-released as a two-CD set that included six new songs. This set was released again in 1998 as Dream Mixes One.

Produced and directed by Edgar Froese, Tangerine Dream: The Video Dream Mixes showcases tracks from their 1995 album The Dream Remixes, and is nothing short of unconventional. Instead of producing yet another collection of manufactured promo clips, Froese’s intention was to communicate complicated musical ideas through the accompaniment of picturesque and, at times, surreal imagery, which veer from being enchanting to strangely disquieting.
The Dream Mixes series gives the listener a chance to see the music of Tangerine Dream from a new viewpoint and proves that the "godfathers of electronic music" can still easily compete with their younger successors from the club- and dance- scene.
Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music(11%). Fourth release of the "Dream Mixes" series, "DM 4" is overall a pleasant volume, accompanied this time by a few surprises. First, there is a certain amount of new material, sometimes supporting TANGERINE DREAM's "historical" compositions, but sometimes the opposite happens. Second, the tracks form a single 70 minutes long piece, which is appreciable.
