DJ Tennis and Michael Gracioppo came together over their shared love of post-rock and ambient music, officiating their passion for the sounds with their newly launched label called Eraclea.
Unlike Life & Death or their individual catalogues, the label will host tunes for "outside of the club", starting with a release in September from Tim Mislock. Mislock is a Brooklyn-based artist who will bring his "guitar-centric ambient" 'Now Is The Last Best Time' album to Eraclea as its debut release. Hear the first single 'A Conception of Memory' from Mislock's upcoming album below.
"The name of the label is a dedication to someone special," Gracioppo told RA. "Feminine and divine, a light of inspiration. She was born in the late 19th century, in the hills of Cattolica Eraclea, Sicily."
