She will be releasing music from the Icelandic artist, Biogen and Species of Fishes, a much loved Russian electronic act on the new GALAXIID record label. This new label will run as a sub-label of Nina Kraviz’ other imprint known as “трип”. Biogen will also put together a compilation of obscurities on GALAXIID will release another album on the main label,трип.
It will run as a sub label of трип and it is a way for her to share her own listening musical taste. She plans to open up an experimental, ambient, and psychedelic world for those who previously may not have known it exists.
GALAXIID will have a strong connection to art through its visual identity just like her main label. All of the album cover artworks will be created by psychedelic artists.
