Hidden Shoal in Textura’s Ten Favourite Labels of 2018 List!

Hidden Shoal is incredibly honoured to have been selected as one of Textura’s Ten Favourite Labels of 2018.

This is the second time Hidden Shoal has been selected in Textura’s best labels list and as always we are nestled against some other very special labels, all of who you should check out. Now for a very brief and unnecessary acceptance speech – we are nothing without our incredible roster of artists, who continually amaze, inspire and surprise us.

RL/VL “Chagrin” 10th Anniversary Re-Release Out Now!

We’re very excited to announce the official availability of the 10th anniversary re-release of the seminal ambient album Chagrin by Belfast-based electronic composer RL/VL, aka Jack Hamill. Long term Hidden Shoal fans will remember the album’s original release back in 2008 and those new to the RL/VL moniker may know of Hamill’s work as Space Dimension Controller, releasing music via Dekmantel, Ninja Tune and R&S Records. Chagrin is reissued alongside the rest of his sublime catalogue with all releases available now via Bandcamp and soon to be streamable at Spotify and downloadable via iTunes et al. Listen in to the stunning first cut from the album, ‘Kweens’ via SoundCloud. “… whenever his small, melodic textures threaten to disappear they always return calmly, in themes and droves and memorable parts… imagination too wild and unrefined to sleep” – Resident Advisor on Chagrin Presenting an impeccably crafted minimalism and focus married to an ineffable sense of human frailty, Chagrin unfolds like the stories of ageless artefacts buried in the earth, still covered in the dirt that was once their home, brimming with micro-histories and rootless memories. Painstakingly layered from a vast array of analogue synths, tape machines, old cassettes and toys, Chagrin’s beauty lies in the fact that no sound is too small, no detail too elusive. This is ambient electronica of staggering emotive power. RL/VL’s music is available for licensing across film, tv, games, web and beyond.
