Nina Kraviz‘s трип label has released details surrounding their 20th release and 10-track label compilation, Don’t Mess With Cupid, ‘Cause Cupid Ain’t Stupid, out July 20 featuring a plethora of goodies.The compilation will include contributions by Bjarki, Biogem and Exos in addition to brand new music from Aphex Twin under his Universal Indicator alias for the first time since 1995. With a hopeful return to acid techno on this one, prepare yourselves for what is to come in the world of techno.
Shadowax’s track, “I Want To Be A Stewardess,” has been the only single off the compilation debuted thus far so for the next month we’ll just have this one on repeat until the full album gets released.
“трип 20 continues the tradition of gatefold double EPs as a conceptual album. All of the tracks are selected around a particular story, a trip, and presented as a continuous sonic landscape. All of the tracks are structured in a way that they can be mixed one with another an endless amount of times making a continuous loop, a trip, that needs only end when the party stops. Kraviz works without release dates or deadlines, enabling her to achieve a certain sound bank to shape the story, unmasking the thoughts and unravelling like a dream.”
