Kristin Allen-Farmer, aka Dream Tonic, is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and classically trained pianist who also produces EDM music. She first earned notice as a member of the Class of 808 production crew for the Producer Dojo label, founded by bass music pioneer, ill.Gates.
Dream Tonic released an EP called Essence in 2022. Music from the EP was heard at the then-new Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser Adventure hotel at Disney World. Tracks were co-produced by Ill Gates and a remix of “Promise Of A Day” was provided by Hello Ego.
"Although this entire EP has songs of darkness intermingled with hope, there is one particular song – 'Spark' – that stands out to me. When I wrote 'Spark,' I was in the middle of going through a very dark time. I had recently lost a person that I loved very much in a sudden and unexpected way. I felt like I was living in a black hole with no way out. Then I remembered that there are people around me who love me, who are still living, and that they need me to emerge, to come out and be my fullest, truest self. This song is a testament to anyone who loves someone and serves as their mirror, reminding them of the fullness of their beauty and potential when they can’t remember it themselves."
