    Vinyl, vinyl, and VINYL!
  1. This went live about a week ago. If you like electronic fueled funky grooves, then this is for you. Artwork by Mizucat...bonus! Cut at 45rpm and mastered for vinyl from the original 24-bit mixes. Pressing will be limited to the amount of orders received. https://qrates.com/artists/SofaKingVinyl/items/14887
  2. The SYNTHWAVE Thread

    The 'Girls On Bikes' vinyl EP from Opus Science Collective (OSC) went live the other day on Qrates and it's over half-way toward the pressing goal of 100 already. It will be a 45rpm pressing mastered from the original 24-bit mixes. If you don't know about this EP, it is amazing. It also has artwork by Mizucat! A mixture of synthwave, electro-funk, and chiptune. There are tracks to listen to here. https://qrates.com/artists/SofaKingVinyl/items/14887
  3. Another album from 20SIX Hundred is making its way to vinyl and will be limited to approx. 100 copies (71 already gone as of this posting). Mastered for vinyl from original 24-bit mixes and exclusive album art. Shipping to most countries is $6 or less! https://qrates.com/artists/SofaKingVinyl/items/14817
  4. That wording about the hypothetical minutes of grooves was taken from a different website called "Classic45s", but I totally get what you are saying. The person who originally wrote that probably exaggerated but it's just thrown in there to make a point about 45RPM cuts having better sound (which I think we can all agree is true). The wording about most audiophile pressings selling for $40 is probably generally true, but granted it probably wasn't necessary to put that on there. The people who want this record will buy it because they want it, not because it's a "good deal". There was probably just a lot of excitement to get the campaign up that there was too much focus on trying to "sell" it, if you know what I mean.
  5. Interesting. I hear a lot of people say good things about GZ. They actually offer both DMM and Lacquer options per the website. The feedback from the label's first release has been all positive from what I've seen. It's the same plant Blood Music uses from what I understand, didn't they sell a whole bunch? But...then again they have a pretty big built in audience.
  6. Giving this 2LP / 45RPM one a bump. I'm actually shocked that it's stagnant at 53 sold out of the necessary 200, especially with those low international shipping rates (but, there is also 46 days left so who knows). Maybe it was posted too late in the game? I really want this one to happen because it's a 2LP/45RPM on black vinyl and not colored vinyl. Sure, colored vinyl is pretty and usually sounds decent but black has the best sound overall and many legit plants say that on their websites - like on Furnace's FAQ page. I also confirmed with a mastering engineer that masters never have to be "re-mastered for 45" - such a thing just doesn't exist. Hoping this one happens - because it's a legit audiophile release (will be pressed by GZ Media). https://qrates.com/artists/SofaKingVinyl/items/14771
  7. This went up yesterday as a funding project and the goal of 100 copies has already been exceeded, but orders are still being taken. It's a tribute to David Cassidy and all proceeds will go to the Alzheimer's Foundation. More info at https://qrates.com/artists/SofaKingVinyl/items/14834 For those who aren't familiar, Ken Sharp is an L.A. based singer/songwriter with four acclaimed albums to his credit, the single was written on the day Cassidy passed away and recorded and mixed in marathon speed. 'I Wanna Be David Cassidy' received its worldwide premiere on November 26, 2017 on renowned DJ Rodney Bingenheimer’s radio show on Sirius XM’s “Underground Garage” the day after it was finished.
  8. The SYNTHWAVE Thread

    The Next Level by 20SIX Hundred is now up for pre-order here. It just got announced the other day, so far 58/100 have been claimed.
  9. SOUL, FUNK, and BLUES Record Thread

    Too bad that Brown Sabbath Vol. II is sold via the band and not the label. That would be a sweet discount.
  10. Honestly, probably the 2LP 45RPM release via Sofa King Vinyl that is currently being funded via Qrates. 200 need to be sold for the pressing to happen. If you care about the best sound, I'd go for that one. It will be pressed by GZ Media if successful (same plant Blood Music uses, I believe) but cut at 45 RPM for higher fidelity. Plus, the shipping is super cheap if outside the USA.
  11. "It will be pressed from the 24-bit vinyl masters." So the vinyl master is being cut up into four files instead of the two originally provided.
  12. 2LP 180g / 45RPM is up! https://qrates.com/artists/SofaKingVinyl/items/14771
  13. The SYNTHWAVE Thread

    ...and 'The Rise Of The Synths' Official Companion Album is also up on BullMoose. Most likely standard black "retail version", not the purple "collector's edition" version that sold out via Lakeshore's site. http://www.bullmoose.com/p/25904937/rise-of-the-synths-official-companion-album
  14. The SYNTHWAVE Thread

    New Scandroid vinyl is up on BullMoose... http://www.bullmoose.com/p/26045059/scandroid-monochrome
