‘Blue Ceiling’ is the new single, with accompanying music video, by German minimal ambient-electronica maestro Jumpel, taken from his forthcoming fourth album Bloc4 (June 4 2013). 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.
”Jo Durbeck’s music is welcoming and gentle, even as it challenges. Deuxieme Bureau explores the positive sounds that are always there, even in the silence, even in sadness” – Foxy Digitalis
Jumpel’s forthcoming album Bloc4 (June 4 2013) 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.
