Wixel is the indietronica outfit of young Belgian Wim Maesschalck. His music can be described as a warm and organic mix of acoustic instruments and gentle electronic treatments with attention for detail and subtle nuances. Comparisons have been made to contemporary artists like Hood, Fennesz, Helios, Sigur Rós,… After several releases on small European CD-R labels like Soundzfromnowhere and Mechanized Mind, spring 2006 saw the release of Wixel’s debut album ‘Heart’. The album generated quite some attention and resulted in glowing reviews and several shows in central europe. Autumn 2007 brought a first 7inch and an EP called ‘Herfst’. A new full length is planned for November 2008.
