猫 シ Corp. – also known as Jornt Elzinga from The Netherlands but currently residing in Finland, started making classic vaporwave music back in 2013 and gaining popularity with the album Hiraeth. In 2014 猫 シ Corp. quickly moved on to becoming one of the top tier artists in the mallsoft subgenre with Palm Mall; exploring a reinterpretation of old styled muzak combined with visions of futuristic utopian worlds. In the years to follow another classic News at 11 was released, this time exploring the impact of 9/11 on Millenials and those who grew up on the internet and with the weather channel.
In 2018 猫 シ Corp. shifted its sound more towards ambient music and started working on new material. This resulted in the instant classic “Building a Better World” – in collaboration with t e l e p a t h テレパシー能力者, which was released in 2019. The album marked the beginning of a new era for 猫 シ Corp. and also the start of “Hiraeth Records“. More recently 猫 シ Corp. will shift it’s focus towards classic Japanese ambient and early sci-fi computer game music.
Two new albums are expected in late 2021 or 2022. This time in the style of drone ambient and space ambient.
