Avant garde electronic label Tri Angle Records celebrated its fifth birthday this past Friday at a secret Wall Street bank vault as part of the Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York, giving attendees an alt-star-studded blowout celebrating its legacy.
Label mainstays—including The Haxan Cloak, Evian Christ, Lotic, Rabit, Holy Other, and Forest Swords—played to the packed venue across two stages, delivering a night full on insanity that managed to outdo that of the adjacent New York Stock Exchange’s daytime chaos.
While the Tri Angle family expectedly delivered top-notch performances all night, it was an unannounced DJ set from Bjork that truly set the night aflame. Masked in a jewel-adorned face net, the Icelandic songstress laid out a beautifully perplexing set mashing up her favorite Tri Angle productions from last year with the vocals of some of her favorite tracks of all time. The surprise set is a continuation of the Tri Angle celebration, as label favorite The Haxan Cloak helped with production and mixing on Bjork’s latest LP Vulnicura.
