PlayGame – Forbidden EP

Is it just me or there’s a new wave of interest towards trip-hop these days? New websites emerge out of the blue (like this self-proclaimed “#1 source of Trip-Hop music” – we all know who’s #1 source of Trip-Hop music ;)) every other musician is trying to squeeze in “elements of trip-hop” in their portfolio...

Sin Smiley (Los Angeles, USA)

It’s been a while since we FEA(U)TURE’d anyone. But don’t you dare thinking that I have abandoned this category, – I still find it one the most (if not the most) important and interesting sides of this project. It’s just there’s not enough time for anything anymore. “Thanks” to that, while this FEA(U)TURE was in...

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...

Eat2Pills podcast featuring VFSix

Our friends from Ru Trip Community are keeping busy. Not only are they now a fully-functioning netlabel with the 5th release on its way (I’ve listened to the sampler and it’s pretty damn tasty), they joined forces with a musician from Samara xpand tm [xd tm] to create Eat2Pills podcast. Episodes of Eat2Pills (the 10th...

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...

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...

Ночная Жизнь Наших Книг (Nightlife Of Our Books) (Nizhny Novgorod, Russia)

To be honest, when I first started listening to Ночная Жизнь Наших Книг (Nightlife Of Our Books), my hand instinctively went to the STOP button. “Eh, another amateur crap,” – I thought, – “another inarticulate self-indulgent mumbling on top of handicraft almost-music”. But something stopped my hand, some unknown energy, or actually very well known –...

UCHU – Shamen Funk

nullReviewing works by people you know personally is both joyful and difficult. Joyful, because it makes me happy that I actually have a direct connection with such talented people and can chat to them online and say “what’s up” without submitting an official request first. Difficult, because what if I don’t like their new release?...

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...

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...

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...
