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...

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 –...

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...

Amon Tobin about ISAM

Amon Tobin knows. Everything. In particular that we all are waiting for his new album ISAM with about-to-piss-my-pants kind of excitement. And that we are a bit scared – what if it’s too crazy, what if if is too different from what we used to (= what we want to hear). We will find out...

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...

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...

What’s up, 11?

Greetings! I hope you all had recovered from New Year celebration and don’t regret any stupid things you’ve (allegedly) done that night. It’s all good. It’s 2011, which promises to be an exciting year for trippin’ the rift. These robo-alien-looking critters on the picture are in fact just the letters TTRR, standing for Trippin’ The...

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...
