Who is Hiraeth Records?

Hiraeth Records is founded in late 2018 and started releasing music in July 2019. The name comes from the iconic vaporwave album “Hiraeth”, by 猫 シ Corp. Hiraeth Records is based in The Netherlands and uses various European manufacturers. We ensure the artists and customers of Hiraeth Records will receive top quality music and releases.

What we release:

We aim to release (underground) music made by artists from the vaporwave, new age, mallsoft, ambient and synthwave scene. This can range from orginal composed new age midi tunes to dreamy ambient. But, every now and then we want to release something that is not expected to be released by a label who’s focus in mainly on dreamy music..! So keep an eye out for anything unusual or different…

All that would fit the general concept of Hiraeth Records are welcome. Want to know who’s already on the label? Please find our catalogue here.

  • Pro dubbed Cassettes

  • Professional mastering on powerful analogue equipment
  • Professsional artwork made by artists in our network
  • All Vinyl Records, Cassettes and CD’s are Produced in Europa
