Take Berlin Take Berlin Brooklyn In the winter of 2011, Jesse pulled a beat-up, old cassette deck from a pile of snow in Crown Heights. A few months later, at a festival on the Baltic Sea, he met a singer named Yvonne. The two embarked on a year-long collaboration, jumping between Brooklyn and Berlin to work on new material. The result is Lionize, a six-song EP that was tracked directly to the discarded cassette deck and will be released in early 2013. Chance – the occurrence and development of events in the absence of any obvious design.
