Lantern Festival

Blake Melton


Brandon Hurtado


Volume VII | 菜谱第7部合辑

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 compilation series is chock-full of varying sounds from artist to artist. Lantern Festival opens up with a track embodying transcendental pop sensibility. Next we are taken on a voyage by Blake Melton’s piano and distorted sounds piece. Dallol’s track breaks the mediation, but keeps the listener at bay with cleverly laced tones and field recordings. Akin to the passing of a hurricane's eye wall, Brandon Hurtado’s piece washes up a new surge of static frequencies and undulations. Ultimately intensifying the the mood is a beat driven banger by YAHNA. The gritty undertones and sharp jabs finalise Seippelabel Vol. 7.

这个版本开始了我们2017年的第一个编译系列。我们给你一个全新的演员,从东南亚和北美洲。 像我们的编辑一样,这个系列充满了从艺术家到艺术家不同的声音。 灯笼节开辟了一个体现超验的流行感性的轨道,然后是布莱克·梅尔顿的航行唤起钢琴和扭曲的片段。 Dallol的轨道打破了调解,但保持听在海湾与巧妙地系带的音调和录音记录。 作为一个几乎经过的眼睛风暴布兰登·赫塔多的作品打破了一个新的浪涌墙的静态频率和起伏。 最终加强情绪是一个由YAHNA的节拍驱动的轨道,其粗ty的底线和尖锐的臀部敲定Seippelabel Volume 7。

Volume 7 Richmond, USA Event

Richmond is an anchor of steady growing sound artists. This city continues to contribute noteworthy submissions one track after another. It only made sense to have our first East Coast Seippelabel event at Sediment Arts to showcase Seippelabel Volume 7. We are eager to announce former contributor—John Dombroski, from Volume 3—will be playing with two future Seippelabel artists, gemtone (Richmond) and Nelly Kate (North Carolina) as part of the event.
