Remergence EP + exclusive free downloads on the way!

Brian and I recently finished some remixes of our own tracks from Emergence,which we will be releasing at the end of September as an EP titled Remergence (get it??)… more details to follow as the date approaches.

In the meantime, we will be sharing one track from Remergence per week, for free download, right here and only here on trifonic.com. Each download will be available for 1 week only, so if you’re not subscribed to the blog, make sure to check in with us regularly so you don’t miss one!

Bandwidth Conference

I’m going to be at the Bandwidth Conference in San Francisco this Thursday and Friday. If you’ll be attending and want to say hi, please give me a shout.

And if you won’t be there but want to live vicariously through my experiences, make sure to check out my coverage of the event over on Hypebot later this week!

Emergence review on Rock Sellout

Music blog RockSellout.com just posted a nice review of Emergence.

My favorite quote: “The richly layered soundscapes that Trifonic have recorded might not be the right choice to play at your neighbor’s bar mitzvah, but they’re perfect to escape from the oxidation that the modern world has a tendency of depositing.”

I really love that image. We’ll gladly take anti-oxidation over bar mitzvahs any day!

Emergence review on AudioScribbler

AudioScribbler posted a really nice review of Emergence on their site today.

Best quote from the review — and certainly the best description of our music I’ve heard thus far: “More trippy than a Crystal Castles fan on meth and smoother than an otter dipped in lube, Trifonic is a must listen for fans of Massive Attack, Portishead and the like, but it also appeals to those in search of a good beat to chill out to.”

Cheers to that!

Earlier this month we uploaded our track Lies to Ourstage.com, a site where listeners can discover and rank music by independent artists. And I’m happy to report that “Lies” was voted as the #1 Techno/Ambient track on the site for July!

Our track is now in this month’s Finals, where fans select a top overall track across all genres. So if you or someone you know is an OurStage user, head on over and judge the finalists! And, you know, feel free to vote for “Lies.” (Voting ends July 31st, 11:59pm ET.)

Hybrid talks about “Parks On Fire”!

Just came across this interview with Hybrid about their new Soundsystem 01 compilation album, which oh by the way just so happens to include our track Parks On Fire… check out what Mike had to say about our track:

… But there are loads of tracks that we have loved for ages. On the first CD there is Parks On Fire by Trifonic which is just sublime. I think it’s like the third track in. We based the first half of the mix around that. Chris leaves his i-chat on the entire time and he has all these other DJs, producers and people from around the world chatting to him. It’s a big boys network. They all swap records and swap mixes, just like ‘Oh, have you got that? I’ll give you this.’ It’s like football cards…haha..A few of the tracks came through there. One of Sachas co-producers, Barry Jameson, sent us that Trifonic track and we just fell in love with it straight away. It is just hoarding music basically, just boys and their toys!

Well, cheers to i-chat and to Barry (who also has a great track on Soundsystem 01) for the introduction… and of course to Mike and Chris for including us on the album. It’s truly an honor. You can read the entire interview here.

As I mentioned in the last post, Soundsystem 01 is available in Europe and Australia now and due out in North America in August.

Soundsystem 01 available now in Europe, Australia

Hybrid’s Soundsystem 01 compilation mix album, which includes our track
Parks On Fire, is out now in Europe and Australia. The 2-disc release also includes tracks by Massive Attack, Trentemoller, Sasha, and other electronic artists you may have heard of…

Being in such stellar company, we were really excited to see that BBC identified “Parks On Fire” as one the key tracks in their review of the album!
