Nina Kraviz’s трип is releasing a double concept album early next year titled Happy New Year! We Wish You Happiness!
Due out on December 28th, the eight-track package follows July’s entry in the series, Don’t Mess With Cupid, and features tracks from label regulars like PTU and Marc Acardipane as The Mover alongside newcomers such as Carlota and Vladimir Dubyshkin. Also appearing are label head Kraviz, who contributes a collaborative track with Snazzy FX‘s Dan Snazelle, and Buttechno, who delivers his first material for трип.
According to the label, the album is a “fantastical celebration of the new” and represents “a fresh new visual outlook for the label“, exploring “the inhospitable extremities of electronic music.”
трип has also announced the release of Vladimir Dubyshkin’s debut EP, cheerful pessimist, a five-track set landing on December 17th. You can listen to some snippets below!
As to the album cover for Happy New Year! We Wish You Happiness!, the label explains that “the intricate crystalline hexagonal snow-like drawings are actually detailed 60s soviet era architectural plans for a school that was never built. The drawings were shown to Nina by the creators grandson. The futuristic look of these ‘industrial snow flakes’ are the perfect visual compliment to the musical theme of the album.” Check it out below!
