Jumpel’s “Cabogato” Album Out Now!

Cabbogato Cover ArtWe’ve eagerly waited 6 years for new work from the incredibly talented German ambient-electronica artist Jumpel and we’re excited to say that the wait is over. Jumpel’s gorgeous fifth studio Cabogato is out now and available to download via Bandcamp. The album will also be available via Spotfiy, iTunes and all other good third party stores in early August. To coincide with the album availability we have also released the stunning second single ‘You’, which is available to stream via SoundCloud.

“Qualitatively spacious, electronically dense, cinematically enthralling and calmly floating”Igloo Magazine

Cabogato Despite his obvious mastery of the dizzying possibilities afforded by technology, Jumpel continues to craft music of intense intimacy and humanity. Cabogato is the product of experimentation with modular synthesizers, field recordings and piano, finely honed into a song suite inspired by time spent at Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park in the Andalusia region of Spain. An enthralling testament to the power of careful distillation and minimalism, Cabogato exudes an emotional complexity that belies its seemingly simple surfaces. From the expansive low-key pulse of ‘Black Sand’ to the delicate, neo-classical, piano-led ‘You’, the album’s vulnerability is both reflective and hypnotic.

All songs from Cabogato along with the rest of the Jumpel catalogue are available for licensing across film, tv, web, games and beyond. Check out our licensing page for more info and don’t hesitate to contact us to see how we can work together on your project.

First Single from New Hidden Shoal Remix Compilation

By any other nameBoy In Nature’s remix of Target Archery’s ‘Opium Den’ is the first single lifted from By any other name, a forthcoming compilation of remixes of recently released tracks by Hidden Shoal artists. The track is available now as a free download via Bandcamp and to stream via SoundCloud. By any other name will see release on the 19th August 2019, available as a free download via Bandcamp and streamable via Spotify.

For By any other name, Hidden Shoal invited a number of emerging Perth artists to rework a selection of tracks from the label’s catalogue. With 11 artists reimagining tracks by Target Archery, Erik Nilsson, Glanko & Daniel Bailey, Summon the Birds, Chloe March and Isophene, what’s most striking about By any other name is both the expansive nature of the individual tracks, and the cohesiveness of the overall listening experience.

By any other name features remixes by Boy In Nature, Austy, Alexi, Michael Tyrie, Sue Summers, Ryan Jose, Daniel Zinetti, Crier, Cron, Shane Isard and JW. Boy In Nature infuses the languid tones of Target Archery’s ‘Opium Den’ with an effervescent buoyancy. On Michael Tyrie’s reimagining of Summon the Birds’ ‘Tactile Hallucination’, the structure of the song is inverted, with the epic climax acting as a cinematic scene-setter. Cron’s re-envisioning of Glanko & Bailey’s ambient masterpiece ‘Adiaphora’ injects the original with urgency without losing its sense of grandeur. And Daniel Zinetti’s brilliant deconstruction of Chloe March’s ‘Old Tree Mon Coeur’ breaks the original into a thousand pieces and then ejects them into space.

As always this music is available for licensing for film, tv, games and more through Hidden Shoal.

REW<< “Salix Babylonica” EP Out Now

Salix BabylonicaWe’re excited to present the stunning new REW<< EP Salix Babylonica. The EP is available now via Bandcamp, Spotify and all other good online stores and streamers and the first single lifted from the release, ‘Salix Amygdaloides’, and its accompanying music video is also available. Don’t forget that REW<<‘s music is available for licensing for film, tv, games and more through Hidden Shoal.

Following on from his beautiful 2018 Hidden Shoal EP Conversation Arctique, REW<<’s Salix Babylonica is a perfectly realised series of neoclassical miniatures. Each of the five tracks is centred around the piano, with the spaces around each note delicately coloured with strings and synth, tracing out a gentle, melodic dance. The feel of the EP recalls Nils Frahm’s masterful Felt – in which the incidental sounds of the piano are as important as the articulated notes – as well as the precise minimalism of Julien Marchal’s Insight series. Perhaps most striking, though, is the EP’s emotional pull, with each piece evoking a timeless, melancholic interlude from a perfectly realised short film.

“Having worked along side acts such as The Promise Ring, Decibully and being one half of the dream pop duo, Eric & Magill, Weber has such an incredible skill set and scope that it’s no surprise his track, “Salix Amygdaloides” is a gorgeous one.”Rural Sounds

Slow Dancing Society’s “The Dream Council” Out Now

The Dream CouncilWe’re excited to announce the official release of The Dream Council, the masterful new album by post-ambient artist Slow Dancing Society. The album is available now via Bandcamp and is also available across all good online platforms such as Spotify, iTunes and Amazon.

On The Dream Council, the second Slow Dancing Society release of 2019 following the epic Fantosmes, Drew Sullivan embraces his cinematic leanings with full force. Drawing equally on the strident melodicism of John Williams and the brooding low end of Hans Zimmer, The Dream Council excels in its dynamic interplay between light and shade, rest and propulsion. The album offers a carefully mapped out narrative path, exploring a beautiful liminal space between the earthly and the cosmic.

All songs from The Dream Council along with the rest of the Slow Dancing Society catalogue are available for licensing across film, tv, web, games and beyond. Check out our licensing page for more info and don’t hesitate to contact us to see how we can work together on your project.
