Wow, that was a ridiculously long hiatus. I hope you, my dear readers and you, all the wonderful musicians who were expecting a review from me during these past few months, will find it in your beautiful hearts to forgive me. As my wonderful little daughter grows up and I’m getting… not younger, it’s hard...

New release – The Developing – The Puzzle [TTRR011]

Here it is, my friends – the first Trippin’ The Rift Records release of the year 2012. The long pause after the last release doesn’t mean that things are slowing down at TTRR – quite the opposite in fact – 4 new artists joined our family, many exciting releases in the works – it just...

New release – Aqosto – Hibernation [TTRR010]

Congratulations are in place, my dear readers! It’s the 10th release by our very own, very independent and very net label Trippin’ The Rift Records. But the true reason for celebration of course isn’t just the number. Aqosto – Hibernation is a true Holiday gift from this talented musician. Hibernation is a work of art,...

New release – The Developing – From A Window [TTRR009]

TTRR keeps exploring the chillout territory, presenting yet another release that will fill your mind with pleasant imagery and your ears with quality downtempo beats and tunes. The Developing is a solo project of Russian musician Andrey Sobolev and despite its name it produced a very well developed four track EP with a clear concept...

New release – Unshaped – Lifestreaming EP [TTRR008]

TTRR is alive and well, thank you very much for asking! We are VERY happy to present this new release, because this is how the music on it is – happy. No, it isn’t some upbeat-dance-techno-club kind of happy, it is a downtempo music and happiness in it comes from lightness, airiness (but not fluffiness...

New release – PanDub Bear – Wake A Break Up [TTRR007]

And now for something completely different! Yes, Trippin’ The Rift Records is expanding. And because we don’t like to waste any time, we expanded in three different directions with just one release! This is how: 1) New name on the roster – PanDub Bear (even though it may not be a new name to some...

coldreavers – Morning In The Cafe (video)

And here it is, Ladies and Gentlemen – TTRR‘s very first and very original music video. All kinds of appreciations go to Mudgeonsoul Productions and personally to Richard Paro (whose short film Fox In The Snow just won the Out There Now Short Film Competition at Kansas City Gay & Lesbian Film + Video Festival....

New release – Elenika – Shot Again! [TTRR006]

Trippin’ The Rift Records welcomes Elenika on board and proudly presents her release Shot Again! And when I say ‘proudly’ it’s not just words – I am really proud to be associated with such an extremely talented individual. She writes, produces and sings! We have our own Anomie Belle now This is the Trip-Hop you...

Ru Trip Community – Letters

There aren’t that many things that are awaited by me these days with such anticipation as new  Ru Trip Community compilations. RTC has by now established a considerable status among trip-hop fans and musicians related to the genre, so they would have to try really hard to release a bad compilation, for at this point in...

New release – Juzhin – Curious EP [TTRR005]

The long-awaited EP by electronica/instrumental collective Juzhin is finally out! Curious is a collection of 7 tracks recorded by the band during the year 2010. This release could easily be considered an album, due to not only its exceptional quality, but, more importantly, its integrity and cohesiveness. You can see right away what Juzhin is...

coldreavers (Saint Petersburg, Russia)

This FEA(U)TURE is very special to me. Here I talk to a musician and a person without whom not only the existence of my tiny but mighty netlabel TTRR would be impossible, but quite possibly the very idea of promoting independent electronica on the pages of this blog would have been mercilessly abandoned. You may...

New release – Aqosto – Blurred Paints EP [TTRR004]

Call it ultimate chillout. Call it ambient-hop. Call it dreamtronica or electromantica. We call it Aqosto. This is a nice way to introduce yourself – by busting out a 6-track EP full of mood, atmosphere so thick you could cut it with a knife (if it doesn’t cut you first) and very nice beats. Blurred...
