'The Box' contains the remastered albums Hypersona, Hollow, and Lithea, in addition to Orphans which is a curated selection of compilation tracks, most for the first time on vinyl, as well as arrangements exclusive for this boxset. Entire set spans across six vinyl records, housed in three gatefold jackets with their own unique artwork.

Each record has a unique vinyl color. The pressing plant were instructed to randomize vinyl colors so that each boxset is completely unique. No boxset shares the same colored vinyl.

The records are housed in a 12.88 x 12.88 x 1.5 matte
 heavyweight box with spot gloss printing on side and cover. The rigid, archival quality box features a .058 caliper white chip interior. Each album is housed in a semigloss, gatefold jacket. Each record is placed in a black, anti-static inner sleeve with a .75 gauge archival polypropylene lining. Each boxset is silver foiled stamped/numbered. Each gatefold jacket is shrinkwrapped and the entire box is shrinkwrapped.

All tracks have been fully re-mixed by 36, from the original project files. Hypersona, Hollow, Lithea, and Orphans were carefully and beautifully remastered at Black Knoll Studio by Rafael Anton Irisarri.

"The Box" is a collection of the earliest and perhaps most cherished recordings by UK producer Dennis Huddleston, better known as 36. Written between 2005 and 2012, it compiles the albums Hypersona (2009), Hollow (2010) and Lithea (2012) into a 6LP boxset, alongside a bonus LP of exclusive and unreleased tracks titled Orphans.

Originally written as a triptych, The Box showcases an incredibly eclectic, deeply emotional range of tracks, bridged together by that optimistic melancholy, which has since become the hallmark of the 36 sound.

"These early albums are incredibly precious to me. I wrote them as a young man, full of naive dreams and a seemingly endless supply of ideas. I poured my heart and soul into realising them. They were the foundations of everything I have made since. To have them all together, in such a beautifully presented box set is a dream come true for me." - 36

Each track has been painstakingly re-mixed by 36 from the original studio project files and then mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri, for the absolute highest sound quality. Presented for the first time together in a stunning 6LP box set, it also features exclusive artwork and extensive liner-notes by Dennis himself.

For fans of ambient music, this is something of a holy grail and we are incredibly proud to be able to share it with you.
