Björk made a surprise appearance at Tri Angle Records’ fifth anniversary party over the weekend. Set up inside an old Wall Street bank vault as part of the month-long Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York, the event featured performances by a number of Tri Angle associates, such as The Haxan Cloak, Evian Christ, Forest Swords, and Holy Other. The highlight was no doubt when the Icelandic songstress showed up for a special DJ set, which she’s now uploaded in its entirety.

The mix featured tracks from Kate Bush, The Haxan Cloak, Death Grips, Jeremih, and even Brandy.  In a message Björk wrote on Soundcloud:

“i would like to wish tri angle label an incredibly sublime birthday and thank for having been invited to dj at their party. couldnt possibly been more honoured than to play in that company !!! the mix i played was my present to them : merging together some of my fav beats last year with some of my fav vocalists doing some of their best songs :

!!! this is my tune-tinder !!!

warmthnesss björk.”
