Second release on Nina Kraviz трип (pronounced ‘trip’) label is another double-EP compilation this time entitled ‘De Niro Is Concerned’.
“The idea of this compiled album/concept compilation is about one of those moments when you suddenly realise that you can't continue as you did before and there is no way back. I was in a 4am facebook chat with Reynier (Deniro) and we both thought Robert De Niro might have had a moment like that. Most of the tracks in TRP002 are live recordings, which is a key part of the label's concept: to release music that is abstract and very specific in texture, yet very human, unplanned and organic, because I really believe in music that captures the emotional moment of when it was made." Nina Kraviz
Featuring a great introductory track from the Icelandic wunderkind Bjarki, a superb collaboration between Nina and the seminal Exos, the legendary Steve Stoll delivers a brilliant acid groover, two classic techno tracks from Amsterdam based Reiyner Hooft AKA Deniro, the wonderful trance induced ‘L'Importance De Doute’ by Parrish Smith, a slice of melancholic techno from Nikita Zabelin and a welcome re-release of the legendary, highly sought after secret weapon Barcode Population – Barcode Population (which will be on the vinyl only) . An eight-track no-holes barred barnstormer of a double-pack.. !!

Could it be that this guy is the momentary hottest thing? This balance between classic rave and modernist minimality just kicks butts in circles. TRIP is the label of the hour, Bjarki a welcome surprise and label boss Nina the long awaited visionary behind it. Totally impressive listener. teejay1974
