About Seippelabel Vol. 6:
This release marks the last of our collective efforts for the 2016 season. However, it embodies many firsts for Seippelabel as a whole. In conjunction with this compilation’s debut we have arranged our first ever event in California, USA at Oakland.Secret on November 5th as well as the first Seippelabel show in our hometown, New Orleans at the Mudlark Public Theater. Another anticipated addition is the launch of merch featuring original art by Rachel Maves.
On the music end, a delicately curated selection of works from varying experimental and electronic artists have been assembled to span the 5 track collection with album art to match. Persisting with the our theme of promoting and supporting friends and respected fellow artists this compilation connects producers and instrumentalists of different nationalities, genders and geographic locations.
About the Artists:
GOOOOOSE is the side project of Han Han, frontman of one of China’s most well-known experimental-rock/electronica bands “Duck Fight Goose” and also owner of the experimental record label Miniless Recordings. His multi-instrumental approach of making music usually leads the audience into a place where electronic, jazz and strange time-signatured rock music finds harmony, yet still pulling from each others core. GOOOOOSE is more like the spiritual cave of Han Han, he is currently based in Shanghai.
Nocturnes are an Indie-electronic band based in Beijing, China, comprising of Leslie (Vocals) and Da Wei (Guitar/Production). They met in late 2015 and self-released their EP in March 2016, coinciding with a slew of performances around Beijing in venues such as Yugong Yishan, Mao, School Bar, etc., culminating in their recent support for Surfer Blood as part of their China tour. Their music combines live guitar and vocals with electronic beats and samples and has been described as “sultry” and “atmospheric”. They are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album, expected to be self-released this September, and will play MTA Festival alongside Nova Heart, Rudimental and Example on 3-4 September.

Zebre Rouge aka Benoit Vitoux is an Electro-Dub producer from France living in Shanghai. Inspired by the French and UK Dub scene, Zebre Rouge created his own style as a dub maker with field recording samples gathered during his travels, ethnic inspirations and a bold synth touch. Armed with his machines and controller his live set is a shamanistic trip from Dub-step to psychedelic electronica.
He has been featured on European national radio shows, released tracks on underground Net-labels and recently on the Lisbon label Labareda (Portugal). He regularly works on experimental art performances with other artists such as the Shanghai based Idle Beats Studio Visual Collective and Beijing Opera actor Gao Mingbo. He is currently working on his first EP.
Uraniborg is operated by long-time Beijing-based, now inhabiting Toronto, electronic musician Vurado Bokoda. Uraniborg describes his work as:
“Uraniborg is an observatory: an island of machines with a human body at its center.
A distant past and an ancient past, and their recording. Uraniborg is multiple modes of attention distributed as spontaneity, modulation, and polyrhythm. Uraniborg is rapt celestial doom.”
Soul Glimpse is the experimental moniker of multi-instrumentalist Austyn Sullivan.
Soul Glimpse is a practice in musical meditation & sonic spiritual reflection. Sullivan creates dense textures, atmospheres & inward concepts in attempts to find higher realms of thought & perception through the creation of music.
Featured Visual Artist:
Seippelabel’s East Coast support and contributions seem to grow with every release. This spotlighted talent resides West of the Blue Ridge Mountains in red brick Richmond, Virginia. Brandon Hurtado, known originally to us for his lush analog tape, field recording and overall attention to space and detail, lends his collage and printmaking work for the featured Volume 6 album cover.
A little excerpt from Brandon himself on this specific piece:
“I set out to explore narrative relationships between two found elements, and create an environment from those relationships. I seek to place the focus on these relationships by using the minimum amount of materials necessary - any more than 2 pieces of paper and I start feeling like things are getting cluttered. Curating these elements from a source based on chance - magazines, newspapers, etc - further turns my focus to how the elements I come across interact and relate with each other.”
Seippelabel is fortunate to announce Brandon’s release of a new track appearing on Volume 7 entitled, “New Spine.” Be on the lookout for Brandon’s ever evolving sound libraries and visual treats at tsintsi.virb.com

GOOOOOSE 是鸭打鹅乐队主唱韩涵的个人音乐计划。他的音乐融合了电子乐,爵士和部分数学摇滚的节拍,经常呈现出一种不同风格冲突下的和谐感。GOOOOOSE 更像是韩涵的自省空间, 现居上海。
曳取（Nocturnes）是一支来自北京的独立电子二人组。他们的音乐氛围感很强，迷人旋律中充斥着饱满的情感，在其中你也许会找到Foals, Bonobo, Coldplay的影子。
