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...

Nightlife Of Our Books – Life Is

I’m not entirely sure why I even bother translating this review into English. Nightlife Of Our Books (Ночная Жизнь Наших Книг) is such a uniquely Russian project that hardly any non-Russian speaker would be able to even remotely enjoy their music. It’s hardcore poetry, not even pretending to be singing or rap, combined with ambient...

Djeh – Screenatorium/Asleep We Live/Asa Zen’ Seï (Lyon, France)

Interesting (to me) fact – ever since I started writing this blog probably over 90% of the music I listen to is independent, cherished by a few but not ever seen on TV or heard on the radio or written about in magazines. The funny part is – I don’t miss the “Big Music” at...

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...

GNs Compilation – Break Asymmetry

This one is long overdue. Break Asymmetry – the compilation by a wonderful internet-resource Good Netlabels came out back in March, and had already been mentioned by pretty much every more or less important netlabel-related website. Still, this is too big of a release (and, most importantly, too good of a release) to not mention...

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....

Non Dolet – Inner

Inner is a fragile and delicate record that may just fall apart when not handled properly. And when it is taken apart, when it isn’t listened to in its entirety, then it cannot be heard. This record is like an icicle, trying to embrace the sun but slowly dying from its burning kisses, and every...

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...

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...

New release – coldreavers – Blue Eyes [TTRR003]

Well, not too many of you used the opportunity to preview the new coldreavers album when we played it on our Radio. I know, I know, it was Valentine’s Day and you were too busy getting ready for romantic dinners or whathaveyou. Besides, it is better to hear our new release in good quality, not...

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...
