What’s new at TTRR

Not gonna talk about achievements of our little undertaking, even though there already are some, but am gonna share these exciting news. Trippin’ The Rift Records welcomes two newcomers! Well, they kind of came in a package – buy one get one free sort of thing, but I’ll take a deal like that any time!...

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...

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,...

What trip-hop?!

Aaah… It’s been a while since the last True Love Tuesday. And I’m sure all of us could use some love these days. It’s a stormy day here in Chicagoalnd, tornado warning, “NON SECURE OBJECTS MAY BECOME AIRBORNE”, says National Weather Service. Kinda makes me wanna become a non secure object… But let’s not fly...

Ru Trip Community – Imprints

When I first found out about the project Ru Trip Community a few months ago, their first release Ru Trip Community Vol.1 made me curious. After listening to RTC‘s second compilation – Imprints, I felt a bit scared. While in Vol.1 an unknown creature by the name of “Russian trip-hop” was sharpening its claws and...

Illy[u]zion (Kursk, Russia)

“My heart is in the rhythm of trip-hop and my voice is about to break…” Illy[u]zion is a frighteningly young project (even though they have been around for a while performing hip-hop music). It may seem like a trip-hop incarnation of “teenage angst” – atmosphere of hopelessness,  hysterical vocals, repeating theme of suicide, loneliness and...

(Русский) CherryVata – Где!?

Rekevin (Moscow, Russia)

“The realization that you somehow affect a person with your music makes you question the reality of what is happening” Allow me to introduce my deeply beloved collective, my Top 1 and lifelong playlist in Russian trip-hop, guys who keep creating beautiful and moving work, even though in not perfect conditions, a band from Moscow...

Ru Trip Community – Da Story Never Ends

I don’t know about you, but for me this post is very important. Probably because I have a lot in common with the three people I interviewed here. And also because I believe that I am near the origins of something big, something that is yet rather less known but has already left an important...

Rekevin – Nulukatuk

It happens sometimes, my dearest readers, that you have to share something very precious, something close to the heart, something that settled in your soul and isn’t ever going to leave it. And right now I, feeling  like a little kid who is showing off his favorite toy, but sure enough doesn’t want to give...

Back to USSR

tipkin – Allow me to introduce my new co-author (and a true supporter of this site from the very first day of its existence) – blond (applause). And his debut post is a surprise (to me anyway) – I’ve never heard of the collective, music of which is presented below. Its name can be translated...

VFSix (Moscow, Russia)

“It all started with desire to express our current state and feeling of music” I bet that if I hadn’t told you, you would never guess that VFSix is a Russian band. And it’s not even because their songs are performed in English. The quality of sound and the unique style – that what draws...
