Hexagon Recordings was a cassette-exclusive ambient music label, announced in 2011. After taking nearly a year to launch, announcements for nine upcoming albums were made. Only five of these were released on the label before an extended hiatus and eventual shutdown. In 2013 it was announced that the label would undergo a relaunch, and in 2015 it was announed the label would be completely resurrected to release the previously abandoned Dream Castle cassettes, however neither of these plans came to fruition.

  • The Datavis tracks of Prism Projector, two tracks from Distant Space, and a previously unreleased excerpt from Autochrome were collected in Datavis' Struggle Droners 2K12 compilation.
  • No information is known about HEXAGON EIGHT, other than the artist name (another alias of Leonce). It's plausible it would've been the same self-titled Memory Pavilion album that was released on Carpi Records shortly before it was announced.
  • When the label was temporarily revived in 2013, it was announced that leftover copies of LIQUID NITROGEN would be sold through the label. It's unknown whether this would've been HEXAGON TEN.
  • Two months after it was announced in 2015 that the Dream Castle tapes would be sold, the album was released on cassette with the label Afternoons Modeling. Presumably, it had already been decided to permanently end the label by then.
