Red Snapper: “Our music is immediate, simple and dark”

I wouldn’t go out on a limb if I say that Red Snapper is one of the most under-appreciated bands in contemporary music. They have been delivering their intense, unique, always fresh but instantly recognizable sound since the early 1990’s and have an amazingly dedicated fan base (which includes yours truly). And yet they seem...

Ana Katana & Li Vox (Tampa, USA/Almada, Portugal)

There are some artists that just get everything right. You come across one of their songs and go: “Yeah, that’s the shit, who is this?” And then you find out that it’s some band who hadn’t even had any releases yet. Which makes you extra proud that you made that disovery before anyone else did....

Anomie Belle: ‘Darkness can be beautiful and sexy’

Twinkle twinkle little star. The star of Anomie Belle started twinkling back in 2008 when her debut album Sleeping Patterns came out and touched many souls of music fans, and probably broke a few hearts. Today this star is shining bright with the new beautiful single “How Can I Be Sure” getting well-deserved media attention...

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...

Teh Nizzim (Tallahassee, USA)

This is it, this is what keeps me going, this is what fuels my rocketship on this long journey through the Rift. Listening to the music, naturally, but also talking to people who create this music, and being surprised every single time how very different they are but how similar they are in their dedication...

DJ Vadim: ‘I love what I do and do what I love’

Always too funky, vibrant and progressing in all kinds of directions, DJ Vadim is never listed among your regular trip-hop staples, and yet I bet every trip-hop fan has a few of his tracks in their collection. Today the creator of timeless favorites like “The Terrorist” and “Your Revolution” is talking to trippin’ the rift...

All systems are go. Requesting permission to launch.

Here it is, my dear freinds, the BIG news. Our very own netlabel Trippin’ The Rift Records is now alive and ready for new listeners and contirbuting artists. Why netlabel? Why not? Musicians should be busy doing what they do best – creating music. They shouldn’t be bothered and distracted with such boring things as...

Ink Project (London, UK)

Very interesting guests are trippin’ the rift with us today, my dear friends. As announced in the previous post, Ink Project, a London-based electronica duo is introducing themselves and their music to our readers. To call them a “trip-hop band” would be accurate, too, since their sound is driven by darker rhythm structure and features...

Wax Tailor – making sincere and deep music

French virtuoso-producer Wax Tailor is one of the most intriguing names in electronica music scene. His deeply rooted in hip-hop style with inventive use of samples and featuring talented guest musicians is fresh and instantly recognizable. He kindly agreed to answer some questions for trippin’ the rift about his latest release, his style and plans...

100th

Here it is, my dearest readers and listeners. The 100th post. A micro-anniversary in trippin’ the rift‘s mini-history. I want to raise this glass of this fine Oatmeal Stout to all of you, who’s been reading these posts (not always inspired and almost never grammatically correct, but always honest), listening to my tiny radio station,...

Dream Seizure (Omaha, USA)

“Trip-hop is everything and nothing” Trip-hop world is pretty crazy these days. There are artists who play music that would be considered “trip-hop” even back in the Golden Era of the late 90’s, but are scared shitless of the trip-hop tag. And there are artists who make music, to which the term trip-hop would (maybe)...

Unwoman (San Francisco, USA)

“… I seek to be timeless, with just the right amount of freshness and experimentation” I don’t even feel right “introducing” Unwoman (aka Erica Mulkey). She is already an established musician with quite a few releases under her belt, she toured with Votaire, Rasputina and Stripmall Architecture (ex-Halou – love ’em!) and has a solid...
