Founded in 2009 by Jonathan Lees, Hibernate Recordings takes you to the melancholic Northern English countryside. The label celebrates its 5th birthday in August, complemented with the presence and perseverant work of the multi-talented Katie English, Ian M Hazeldine and Harry Towell. ‘Inspired by the unpredictable, momentary and quiet solitary beauty of the Pennine moors’ – as they would define it themselves –, Hibernate got expanded with the Rural Colours sublabel, and also introduced the superb Collaboration & Postcard series. Their assiduous efforts result in one of the most exciting ambient labels out there as of now. Jonathan, the brain and heart of Hibernation told us a little bit about their past, present and future – and also prepared a special mix, featuring some of his favourite tracks released on his own label.
