Tom Trago's Voyage Direct imprint appears set to be keep itself rather busy over the next few months, with the upcoming release of Trago's first solo single since 2013 and a double-disc label compilation soon on the way.

First, Trago will issue his Hidden Heart of Gold 12" on March 9. A two-track affair, the single is set to be led by its 12-plus-minute title track (streaming below), which will also be accompanied by an "ambient mix" of the sprawling production on its b-side.

The following month, Trago's Voyage Direct label will issue First Mission, a double-disc compilation that will collect new productions as well as material from the label's existing catalog, including artists such as Legowelt (as House of Jezebel), Carl Craig (on remix duties), Awanto 3, Maxi Mill, and—of course—Trago himself amongst its 22 tracks. The compilation's April 27 release will also coincide with a First Mission tour which will find many of the record's contributors coming together for a number of shows around Europe. The complete details of that upcoming tour and the artwork and tracklist for First Mission have been included below, where a full stream of Trago's forthcoming "Hidden Heart of Gold" single has also been included.
