Many labels have come and gone during the past five years, but very few of them have had the impact of Tri Angle Records. The imprint has forged a path that has repeatedly unearthed intriguing new artists while connecting the dots between atonal noise, leftfield R&B and hip hop, brooding atmospherics, and hauntingly emotive pop.
In honor of the label’s fifth anniversary, Red Bull Music Academy Festival 2015 brought together a collection of some of Tri Angle’s brightest talents, including The Haxan Cloak, Holy Other, Evian Christ, Forest Swords, Vessel, and more. This high-profile assemblage took over the basement and vault of the former J.P. Morgan building across the street from the New York Stock Exchange with a few special guests joining the fun throughout the night.
