The new EP release To Set The River On Fire opens a window into a new universe of possibilities: Hidden Shoal artists remixing each other’s music. In the first of what we hope will become an ongoing series, English dream-pop artist Chloë March takes on a track from the latest album by German experimentalist Markus Mehr – and vice versa.

Listening to ‘Buoy (Chloë March Remix)’ feels like watching Chloë March creep tentatively into Markus Mehr’s shadowy soundworld, casting her radiant voice around the room like torchlight. While on ‘Ember (Markus Mehr Remix)’, the original’s beautifully simple arrangement for voice and piano is trapped within a hall of industrial-sized mirrors, anxiously roving around in search of escape. Each remix complements the other, masterfully re-interpreting the source material while inviting fresh listens to the original.

English artist Chloë March inhabits musical territory somewhere between art song and folk, dream-pop and electronica, the ambient and the cinematic, to create poetic, emotionally charged and intensely atmospheric songs and soundworlds. Her latest album Nights Bright Days was reissued by Hidden Shoal in 2014. Markus Mehr is an experimental ambient artist based in Augsburg, South Germany, who has released five critically acclaimed albums on Hidden Shoal since the turn of the decade (including his latest, Binary Rooms, in 2014), and works in the live arena with video artist Stefanie Sixt.
