Russian techno influencer Nina Kraviz is known for expert production quality and smooth dance moves, though one thing she’s maybe yet to become renowned for is her – fairly new – трип imprint (pronounced Trip).
Launched May last year the label soon became a trusted authority in the depths of murky techno, with Nina’s reputation and quality releases it has served as a comfortable output for authentic sonic beats.
трип now ready up for TRP004 and TRP005, two strong label players that aim to bring a timeless foundation to трип. Both players come as double 12″ packages, as well as digital offerings.
TRP004, ‘Ivan, Come On! Unlock The Box’ set for a November 13th release see’s a strong presence from Nina’s home country, with Russians Philipp Gorbachev, Roma Zuckerman and seventeen year old Vladimir Dubyshkin all serving cuts for this one.
The player also brings Detroits K-Hand to the label, and welcomes the return of Barcode Population alongside Nina herself. Our pick from the 8-tracker no undoubtably comes in the form of Barcode Population’s Marduk – which is delivered as a vinyl-only addition alongside Internum.
A1 Philipp Gorbachev – Ivan, Come On, Unlock The Box / Иван, Давай, Открой Коробку (Kraviz Edit)
A2 K-HAND – The Box
B1 Nikita Zabelin – Bells
