Psilowave are ecstatic to be able to present Virtual Records! One of our favourite labels here at Psilowave HQ, Virtual Records is the creation of label owner and luminary of Ambient music Matt Hillier, one of the most psychedelic, creative and accomplished artists working in the Ambient genre today. Recording under the name “Ishq” (literally – “love”) with long time partner Jacqueline Kersley, Matt had a formidable catalogue of sublime releases already under his belt for some of the biggest Ambient labels of the 90’s such as Interchill, Aleph Zero and Dakini before launching the Virtual Imprint in 2005.
The last decade has seen Virtual grow exponentially, with releases not only by Matt who is highly prolific in his various guises but has also introduced us to artists such as Sinepearl and Experiments In Silence. In the process Virtual has become a parent to several sub-labels including Virtual Space, Virtual Light and Virtual World, with each offshoot focussing on a different style, but with every release clearly carrying the Virtual “sound”. Sometimes cold and distant, sometimes warm and lush, often synthetic and cosmic, the constant to all Virtual releases is the sense of the “Other” an immersion into worlds at once connected yet paradoxically estranged from the here and now. Seriously psychedelic music for the serious listener!
Based in picturesque Cornwall, Virtual specialise in mesmeric unfolding soundscapes with many releases designed specifically for horizontal listening on headphones. All titles are extremely limited CD releases strictly for the ambient elite and quickly become highly sought after collector pieces!
Alongside …Txt Recordings, the Virtual Records imprint has established itself as the premier Ambient label not only in the UK but throughout the planet! For listeners looking for an immersive Ambient experience in the 21st Century this really is where it’s at, it gets no better.
We are absolutely delighted to represent Virtual Records and are honoured to be the official exclusive UK and European stockists of Virtual Records physical releases outside of the Virtual website. Visit the Virtual Records label page here at “Psilowave” to browse the full Virtual catalogue.
