Appearing as a mysterious sea siren complete with shimmering mask, mother of music Bjork took to the decks for a surprise set at Tri Angle Record's fifth birthday party. Part of RBMA's festival, the event transformed a former bank vault on NY's Wall Street for a label celebration to rival all others. Following sets from Tri Angle friends and family including Forest Swords, Holy Other and the Haxan Cloak, Björk began unannounced and wowed guests with a mind-blowing set spanning Kate Bush, Brandy and Death Grips for starters. Stick this on and prepare for a swirling sonic adventure - at times nightmarish, others completely heavenly. Allow yourself to be manipulated by a master.

"i would like to wish tri angle label an incredibly sublime birthday and thank for having been invited to dj at their party" Bjork posted on her soundcloud recording of the mix. "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."
