Following a pair of double-vinyl gatefold collections featuring label owner Nina Kraviz, Exos, Population One, Deniro and Steve Stoll, трип’s first single comes from the label’s rising star Bjarki. A-side ‘I Wanna Go Bang’ has long been an in demand record in Kraviz’s sets, with the Dance Mania influenced techno cut sitting alongside his contributions to TRP001 & 002 as a calling card for this exciting new talent, while B-side ‘Orange Juice Man’ taps into Bjarki’s more melodic side.
“This is the first 12-inch single on трип - one banger and one dreamy groover on the other side, that shows the different sounds of Bjarki. He is one of those artists that can make club bangers and also compose music for movies. But no matter what this brilliant Icelander does it always has this sexy groove going on.
“As always we asked Tombo to visualise our trip. The idea was based on one famous phrase from Arthur Russell’s famous song ‘Go Bang’: I wanna see all my friends at once / I’ll do anything to get the chance to go bang
“He came up with 2 beautiful whales and some really psychedelic drawings: ‘Arthur and intergalactic whales’. Why Arthur Russell? Well the connection is all in the name of the DJ Deeon’s vocal from the track that Bjarki sampled in this record, originally released on Dance Mania - it says “Sometimes I feel like I wanna go bang”. This phrase reminded us of Arthur Russell’s song.”
