Mix : Hibernate

Headphone Commute Mix

It’s a good morning to hibernate… If you haven’t yet noticed this wonderful micro-independent label from Hebden Bridge (West Yorkshire, UK), perhaps we can help… Hibernate is only two years old (est. 2009), but in its lifetime it managed to capture our attention with every single release. From miniature 3″ CDrs in the Postcard Series to extremely limited edition of hand-cut tea-aged vintage-string-wrapped fragile envelopes, to textured organic mulberry paper sleeves in hand-sewn hessian bags, each release is cared for with great attention to detail, and most importantly, love… And the music? From Talvihorros to Mark Harris to Clem Leek, the artists from the label keep on surprising our ears, topping our charts, and capturing our hearts! And in this year alone, the label has managed to put out close to a dozen releases already (and it’s only July)! So before the end of the year is upon us, let’s jump right to it, and discover all that is beautiful about Hibernate Recordings. Complimented by a Sound Bytes entry on Hibernate, here’s a special mix, created by the man behind the label, Jonathan Lees.
