Nina Kraviz announces new psychedelic sister-label to трип
Russian DJ and producer, Nina Kraviz has always been an advocate for pushing psychedelic, experimental artists into today’s dance music spotlight. Since establishing her innovative label трип (pronounced ‘Trip’) in 2014, Kraviz has remained a pioneer for top production and mind-bending music.
Recently, Kraviz announced the exciting news that she will be launching a sister label to трип, called GALAXIID. The new label is reported to focus on experimentally psychedelic ambient music, and will release books in addition to artists’ music.
Two acts have already been pegged for the first few releases on the label – Russia’s Species of Fish and Icelandic pioneer, Biogen, who has an album forthcoming on трип. GALAXIID also reportedly aims to put out compilations of abstract sounds from Japan and psychedelia from 1970s Russia.
GALAXIID’s first event will be held March 25 at Printworks, a new 5,000 capacity music and arts venue based in London. Nina Kraviz and Luke Vibert will headline the show, with supporting live performances provided by 808 State, Aleski Perala, Bjarki, Doppleffekt, and PTU.
