Josh Furey: "What you hear is truly subjective"

Josh Furey: “What you hear is truly subjective”

Allow me introduce the person who was able to bring trippin’ the rift back to life - Josh Furey. His new album Petals is coming out this Friday, and trippin’ the rift grabbed a few minutes of of his busy pre-release schedule to talk about him and his music. tipkin – Hi Josh! Since this...
Botany Bay: "We really have nothing to lose"

Botany Bay: “We really have nothing to lose”

What is a friend? To me it is someone who will stay with you no matter what you’re going through, who will share your happiness when you’re successful and will go through tough times with you, shoulder to shoulder. I have met many musicians since I’ve started this blog, but not a lot of them...
Jacuzzi Project: "First of all it's music"

Jacuzzi Project: “First of all it’s music”

I’m sure that Ukrainian (and not only) fans of electronica, jazz and just good music are familiar with the work of  Jacuzzi Project one way or another – if not from seeing them play at major regional festivals, then from their two studio albums (one of which trippin’ the rift had a pleasure reviewing last...
Made Of Wood (Albuquerque, USA)

Made Of Wood (Albuquerque, USA)

I like smart people. They make life easier, conversations more meaningful, movies less boring and music that you actually want to listen to. You will definitely want to listen to Dan Waldman‘s (aka Made Of Wood) album The Chill/Funk Trip (as well as his other works) after reading this interview. And you definitely should, because...
STEREOSPREAD (Asheville, USA)

STEREOSPREAD (Asheville, USA)

It’s all about love, isn’t it? No, really. Love makes us care about things, love inspires and, unfortunately, sometimes destroys us (but still inspires!). When two people combine their love for each other with their love for music, the results are magical. Please meet James Hopkins and Sara Snyder who create dark, sensual and genre-boundaries-defying...
Aqosto (Moscow, Russia)

Aqosto (Moscow, Russia)

To rephrase (quite drastically) George Orwell: all people are unique, but some people are more unique than others. They don’t necessarily stand out from the crowd, in fact most of them are pretty modest and don’t like to advertise their uniqueness. This is why I value their acquaintance greatly – they help me look at...
Mimi Page: "Music is a wordless language within itself"

Mimi Page: “Music is a wordless language within itself”

She has everything. Beauty, brains, loving fans from all over the world, recognition from critics and about as much talent as you can possibly fit inside one person. People fall in love with her music and want more. And more she gives, and the beautiful flower of her music career is just starting to blossom....

THE NEW LAW: “The longer we go without making music, the crazier we get”

A couple of weeks ago I was watching a certain reality TV show about art and artists (not going to say what show it was, but Congratulations, Kymia, I was rooting for you from the beginning!) and looking at the winning artist’s exhibit I thought (aloud as usual): “This is the work of a true...

Tensei (Chicago, USA)

It’s raining Chicago trip-hop projects! Just a little while ago I was a lonely trip-hop soul in Windy City, and then all of a sudden Scarlet Monk appeared with her album, I was finally able to make contact with Atomica Project (them and Scarlet Monk are playing a show in January and I’m definitely going...

Anomie Belle: “Everything is always changing”

Anomie Belle does not waste any of her time or talent. Less than two months ago The Crush was released (and my, what a great record that is), but instead of taking a well-deserved break, Anomie Belle dived even deeper into work and in a few days (on December 6th, to be exact) she’s releasing...

Marilyn Carino (New York, USA)

There are some people with such interesting and rich personalities, that when you find out that they’re also extremely talented and create amazing and beautiful things you’re not even surprised, you just go, “yeah, that makes sense”. It happened the opposite way with Marilyn Carino – first I heard her new beautiful record Little Genius...

AM444 (Shanghai, China)

Suck on this, all ya’ll who ever questioned my taste in music. A little chronology of events: April – yours truly is digging through Bandcamp searching for something good to play on the radio (not the easiest task) and finds this project from Shanghai called AM444. Later the same month – AM444 gives trippin’ the...
