About Seippelabel Vol. 7:
This release kicks off the first of our compilation series for 2017. We present you with a whole new cast of artists ranging from Southeast Asia and North America.
Like always in our compilations this series is chuck-full of varying sounds from artist to artist. Lantern Festival opens up with a track embodying a transcendental pop sensibility which is then followed by Blake Melton’s voyage evoking piano and distortion piece. Dallol’s track breaks the mediation, but keeps the listen at bay with cleverly laced tones and filed recordings. As an almost passing of the eye of the storm Brandon Hurtado’s piece washes up a new surge wall of static frequencies and undulations. Ultimately intensifying the the mood is a beat driven track by YAHNA whose gritty undertones and sharp jabs finalise Seippelabel Vol. 7.
