The Vinyl? It's Pricey. The Sound? Otherworthly.

You may have come across this interesting article about The Electric Recording Co. in the New York Times this week. We portrayed Pete for Passion For Vinyl Part II and visited the company back in 2017, one quote from Pete in PFV Part II which says it all... “People recognise that what we do is a true labour of love, mixed with a healthy dose of obsession.”

We've been pressing vinyl for The Electric Recording Co. and Peacefrog for many years now, and it's a real pleasure working with Pete and his team.

To UV or not to UV, that's the question....

We're sometimes asked if jackets (or other print work) can be given an extra glossy finish. They certainly can! A glossy finish can indeed create a nice luxury look. We can finish your print work with a UV gloss varnish all over or a gloss laminate. Both create a more vivid, luxurious and more tactile finish for your vinyl package compared to regular gloss varnish. But what is the difference between UV and Gloss laminate and what do we advise you to choose?

Pimp your vinyl

Let's bring some inspiration. Why not pimp your vinyl with a nice UV print? Combining best of both worlds: excellent audio on one side and a nice bright print on the other side. Perfect for a release with a blank D side or perhaps a special edition with one sided audio. The print works best on a white or clear vinyl. Please contact us for more information.

Vinyl production continues

Unfortunately there is no way around it anymore, Corona Virus is impacting the whole world, including the music industry. Although we try to continue our business 'as usual', there may be some delays caused by different reasons.

Meet 'mom-and-pop' of our vinyl shop

Ton Vermeulen is the proud owner of Record Industry, together with his wife Mieke. Before he took over the Haarlem-based pressing plant in 1998 he already knew the music industry inside out. He was a deejay, worked for radio stations and music distributors and co-owned a very successful dance label.

'I bought my first singles in the early 70's. Every now and then my parents would give me a little money, which I was allowed to spend at a local record store. I bought the singles of the bands that were very popular at the time, The Sweet, Middle Of The Road, The Poppies and others. Around that time I hung out with two of my nephews, Marko and Peter Sloothaak. They were also into music, big time. The first one was a major fan of The Beatles. Peter, the oldest, collected 7”es. Every 30th of April - Queen's day in Holland - we would roam the free markets on streets of Amsterdam, looking for singles. They were very cheap, so we came home with hundreds, sometimes thousands of them. We would clean them with some water and soap and then enjoy the music.'
