Aphex Twin has revived an old alias for трип's 20th release
"Don’t you mess with cupid, cause cupid ain’t stupid."
Nina Kraviz's label трип is celebrating its 20th release with a 10-track compilation, 'трип 20 - Don't Mess With Cupid'.
Aphex Twin has revived his Universal Indicator project for the release, contributing with "merciless cut" '15 c7'. The last release from Universal Indicator was 'Universal Indicator Green' in 1995.
Nina's input on the compilation - 'Opa' - is described as "an obscure beast of cross-rhythmic machine funk."
Bjarki, Biogen, Exos and PTU all appear on the double gatefold EP, said to contain unreleased material from "трип regulars, esoteric masters and relative newcomers."
The press release reads: "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."
Listen to Shadowax's 'I Want To Be A Stewardess' and check out the full tracklist below.
Shadowax plays live alongside Nina Kraviz, Bjarki, PTU, Deniro and DJ Rush at трип's showcase at Monasterio in Barcelona on June 15.
