The трип offshoot will specialise in experimental, ambient and psychedelic music.
As with трип, RA's label of the month for December 2016, this new venture will have a strong visual identity—we're told that "all the cover artworks will be drawn by psychedelic artists." In addition to its musical output, which will center around "experimental, ambient and psychedelia," GALAXIID will also occasionally put out books.
The first couple of releases come from Russian act Species Of Fishes and Biogen, with some of the Icelandic producer's lesser-known works collected on a compilation. (There's also a Biogen album coming on трип.) There are also plans to release compilations of psychedelic music from Japan and 1970s Russia.
Release dates on those records are not yet confirmed, but the first GALAXIID event is in the calendar for March 25th at new London venue Printworks. Kraviz will DJ, as will Luke Vibert, while the rest of the lineup—808 State, Aleksi Perälä, Bjarki, Dopplereffekt and PTU—will perform live. (Tickets are available here on RA.)
Kraviz spoke about GALAXIID on NTS Radio in late 2016—listen back to that show.
