Mori Ra – Trapped In The Sky [TRACYISLAND001]

Tracy Island, surrounded by natures 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 main land mentality, offering feelings of tranquility 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. Tracy Island will follow a 10 episode framework taking inspiration from Thunderbirds, all of which aptly named after the original series. The first episode welcomes Mori Ra of Osaka, with four old edits from way back when on “Trapped In The Sky”. “ Located in the South Pacific, the heavily camouflaged Island’s ulterior function is to serve as the secret base of the International Rescue Organisation. Music For Hope. With love from Tracy Island.

Mori Ra – Sleeping Industry [MME7007]

Japanese editor Mori Ra returns with four more perplexing, wonderfully obscure edits on Macadam Mambo; “Acid Indonesia” is an overwhelming experience laced with toxic percussion, gritty bass and buried harmonies. “Canoe Tamburi Sacri” retains the heavy percussive focus while flipping the mood switch for something much slower and meditative. “Sleeping Industry” is the most cosmic number on the release with an array of synths vying for our attention over a wind chime rhythms while “Tsuru-Kame Hinadisco” brings us back into reality with harmonic chimes, steel drums and more dubby overlays than a Kingston cutting house.
