For our first release of 2015, we’re more than happy to welcome Berlin-based Macedonian producer Herzel to the label. In ‘Shades’ EP, his debut for Hivern, Aleksandar Grozdanovski displays an enchanting sound that falls somewhere in between the glowing indie-electronics of Four Tet and the deep atmospheres of the likes of Jus-Ed.

As its title implies, ‘Daydreamer’ is a starry-eyed composition built around a floaty melody, foggy pads and rattling percussion. ‘Closure’ follows a similar path, but with a deeper vibe, blending a ghostly arpeggio with shuffling beats. The title track is also conducted by an arpeggiated, blazing melody, in this case paired with haunted vocals that add a more emotional twist.

The EP also includes two ‘Daydreamer’ remixes by British up-and-coming talent Palms Trax: A ‘Backroom Office Tool’ specially aimed for DJs and his ‘Nothing but a Dreamer Mix’, which looks back into the 90s NY house sound mastered by the likes of The Burrell Brothers.

The 12” comes housed in a special Hivern sleeve, with artwork designed by Arnau Pi.

Release date: February 16th, 2015
