‘Blue Ceiling’ is the new single by German minimal ambient-electronica maestro Jumpel, taken from his forthcoming fourth album "Bloc4". The track is available for free download from the Hidden Shoal Store - store.hiddenshoal.com

On ‘Blue Ceiling’, Joe Dürbeck continues his breathtaking collaboration with Chloë March (who contributed vocals to the 2010 single, ‘Edinburgh’). ‘Blue Ceiling’ has an utterly heartbreaking drift, its pellucid atmosphere like winter sunlight refracting through raindrops on a window pane.

Jumpel’s new album "Bloc4" centres around the elevated yet lonely world of a tower block, each track poetically investigating its multi-faceted elements and spaces. The songs were written throughout 2012, with ideas collated, reviewed, developed and remixed. Following the wonderful results of his collaboration with Chloë March on "Europa" single ‘Edinburgh’, Joe Dürbeck presented the ideas for "Bloc4" to March and invited her to select tracks and develop vocal ideas. The results are stunning – and offer a perfect counterbalance to the more melancholic, spacious instrumental pieces.
