This site is basically like kickstarter but specifically for vinyl. With the ease that people can make a project on there comes alot of garbage, most of the stuff on here sucks. But it seems like a good way for artists to afford vinyl pressings with basically no risk. The site just launched on April 24th and so far only two projects have been funded.

Neither have finished being pressed yet, but I ordered the flatsound one so I'll post here once I get it so you all can see how a final product of Qrates looks/sounds.

 

Successful projects:

 

flatsound - if we could just pretend

Figured I'd chime in here. A lot of electronic/synthwave acts are using Qrates these days and I've come across many people in groups who got records through them. I have been following it as I was intrigued myself. I haven't seen anyone complain about the quality of their records...just their mailers! They were using the cheap UK style mailers and SO MANY were arriving damaged. But now, they are smart and use the sturdy kind...they call them "buckwrap"  mailers or something. There is a release on there right now that I would love to see happen, actually.

stumbled across this on the qrates front page...pretty cool multi-genre electronic stuff. heavy video game soundtrack vibe. i guess the person behind halley labs has a bunch of other projects and a pretty big niche following.

heres the album on bandcamp (the vinyl version is slightly edited, thus the different title)

Well this one just HAS to hit the goal....this is too good not to be on vinyl. The new album from Robots With Rayguns! For those not familiar, this is some pretty solid synthwave/synthpop stuff and the first RWR album to have a vinyl release.  It is really, really good too! It's called 'Slow Jams' because it's all low tempo stuff and it's pretty good chillout music too .

 

200 need to be sold for it to happen, but 60 have sold in a week. It will be a 2LP mastered for vinyl from original mixes.

Thanks!! Exciting to see they're repressing this. Hopefully we'll see others eventually.

Also, I really wish qrate had a better way to follow artists and be notified of releases.
