Ell Weston, one-half of a Bristol label Banoffee Pies has announced the launch of his new label Tracy Island. The first release on the label is a four-track EP from Japanese edit maestro Mori Ra.
Named after the home of the Tracy family in the 1960s television series Thunderbirds, Tracy Island will follow a 10 volume project taking inspiration from the show, all of which aptly named after the original series.
“Tracy Island, surrounded by nature’s greatest and ever rising force of the Ocean, is a place emanating peace and joy. The label is a concept representing the isolation and appeal of Island life, contrasted with thought-provoking and mesmerising melodies to draw us away from mainland mentality, offering feelings of tranquillity and wonder.
In these controversial times the necessity to escape or break away grows as we feel increasingly submerged by the world’s realities, now more than ever we should strive to protect both the environment and the purpose of this planet.”
Listen to the first excerpt “Wilderness” below.
Trapped In The Sky is released via Tracy Island on March 24th – buy from Bandcamp.
