Comprises of composer Jayrope and natural vocal synthesizer Lippstueck, who have graced together Berlin’s underground scene since the 90's. Lippstueck sings, wordless and backwards in time while his partner jayrope tends to DIY, electronic, string or percussion instruments. Chinese New Year was recorded live on Jan 28th, 2017 at Dirk Bell Studio in Berlin Wedding upon a friendly invitation by World Peace. Spacious, with ancient tea leaves served in hot water.
