About the Release:
Seippelabel Vol. 4 showcases artists currently living in Beijing, those who have since left the city, and those abroad. This compilation takes on more of an electronic and beat oriented direction with a pleasant balance of ambient and soundscapes sprinkled throughout. We are happy to include Zhuhai, China based electronic producer, Lastboss’ track as a fairly spooky intro.
After that there is Scottish producer, æϣ. He is a former Beijing resident and synth designer/guitarist who played in the bands Incisors and Mammals (BJ). This is followed up by a quite relaxed track by Dazed Marrow; an American producer based in Daegu, South Korea. The compilation goes on the feature two Beijing based artists who regularly play around town; Wen Liang and dee. While Wen takes one more a cinematic vibe dee’s live performances are centered around physical interaction with the audience. Finally we are sent off with a song by long time China hand, dMH who has returned to his home country of Ireland, but while in Beijing played in several bands including LOW BOW, Cloud Choir, Paper Tiger Jamboree and various other projects.
Release date: August 10th, 2016

Seippelabel reaches a milestone with its newest release. This compilation welcomes a very special visual artist, long time roommate, collaborator and dear friend Rachel Maves. Rachel's illustrative graces glide over our Vol.4 album cover gifting us with an Egon Schiele inspired expressionist sketch.
Maves is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Va and the Illustration Academy located in Kansas City. Her work has been shown steadily around the U.S. and now on a global scale. Rachel’s illustrations and paintings capture images which embody quaint but specific encounters she runs into contact with on a daily basis, often challenging the closed off world of our own imaginations. Rachel currently resides in Washington D.C. You can check out Rachel’s creations on her site, www.rachelmaves.com
