Nina Kraviz’s pioneering label трип has announced its next multi-artist compilation. Coinciding with the new year and arriving at the start of January, the eponymously titled Happy New Year! We Wish You Happiness! centres around the concept of celebrating new beginnings. Since its inception, трип has grown a reputation for releasing a number of concept VAs. The follow-up to July’s Don’t Mess With Cupid (‘Cause Cupid Ain’t Stupid), will feature the label boss alongside familiar peers and breaking talent.
Трип regular PTU is involved with Mystera, while newcomer Carlota supplies two entries. Another emerging producer, Vladimir Dubyshkin, also contributes a track, fresh off his debut EP for the label. Meanwhile, Buttechno graces the label for the first time and Nina herself collaborates with Snazzy FX. You can preview all eight cuts below:
