Emerging cross-national label Seippelabel joins forces with Live Beijing Music for a celebratory evening of offbeat sounds, electronic wizardry, and transcendent soundscapes at one of Beijing’s longest living strongholds in the music scene – the Old What? Bar. Seippelabel, the label founded by local musician Brad Seippel, shines a light on the diverse sounds found in Beijing and beyond, as evident in the their latest just released installment whose sounds reach as far as the UK – check out their full catalog here. On Saturday, May 21st, they’ll join LiveBeijingMusic for some summer festivities at the Forbidden City hole in the wall as well as one of the scene’s most underrated gems, the Old What?, will host four diverse potent acts. First up, the electronic MVP of Beijing, a wizard synth maker, programmer, and soundsmith, Mengqi, brings his bag of audio tricks. Next up, emerging indietronica duo Nocturnes, made up of vocalist Leslie and electronic producer David Carey, bring their lush, sensual tunes for a spin while post rock crusaders She Never Sings Our Songs (SNSOS), whose presence has duly been noted since their emergence last year, present their elegant, enveloping soundscapes. And finally, Seippelabel head houcho thruoutin, one of the scene’s busiest electronic producers out there, performs his blend of Chinese-infused instrumentation and intricate electronica. Intoxicating sounds on a fine summer evening, with chuan’r and roadside beers – it’s a show you don’t want to miss!
