It is the split second of magic before awakening from a dream.
LOW HILL is a singer/songsmith project by Laurens Vanhulle, a multi-instrumentalist and producer of melancholic songs that balance between classical songwriting and experimental electronics. Originally a 5 piece band, but now a one man project that breathes emotive melodies that are both threatening and enchanting.
Vanhulle started as a composer for theater and dance in Antwerp, working with the likes of Zuidpool, De NWE Tijd, Jeroen Perceval and more. As a performer he made his stage debut as the official support of Stijn at Het Entrepot in Bruges, where at the time Vanhulle was artist in residence.
It is when the first LOW HILL songs catch the attention of David Martijn (Goose, Soulwax) that things fall into place. David introduces Vanhulle to Benjamin Desmet (SX). They have combined forces ever since to construe the typical fingerprint sound that is so characteristic to LOW HILL. A universe that might be dark and volatile, but with passion lurking to be uncovered. As Vanhulle states it: 'If I were to describe what I do, I would call it dark electronic neo-soul'.
