The logos for each label.

Status: Partially Found

A small handful of labels run by the prolific Kazunao Nagata, future founder of Transonic Records. Releases included music by artists that have also worked on video games (e.g. Tomonori Sawada with Sega games such as Jet Set Radio Future and Sonic Free Riders) and other Japanese musicians of varying significance.

Nearly all releases across these three labels are lost, as they were seemingly released in very limited quantities on tape cassette. This includes 20 cassettes on Trigger Label (in addition to one VHS cassette), 9 on Trip Out Tapes, and one on Trinity Label. A few releases have been found (see Gallery) and a small number of others are documented on Discogs, the majority are completely lost however, with some Twitter users seemingly owning a few. Kazunao Nagata was contacted for information on the labels’ releases, however he did not have any remaining tapes himself.
