“Tangible Formats” leath cuts records directly into blank virgin vinyl.

Plastic CDs and cassette tapes are a thing of the past. Once again, playing vinyls tends to become more popular. “Tangible Formats” leath cuts records directly into blank virgin vinyl. According to their website, their discs are specially formulated to resemble the durability, look, and sound of pressed vinyl and they provide the highest quality, lowest prices, and fastest turn around times.

 

In a collaboration with Sharp's Brewery and Nick Mulvey, Tangible Formats has lathe cut the first vinyl made from ocean plastic debris found along the coastline of Cornwall.

 

“The launch of this innovative new ‘ocean vinyl’ comes after last year’s signing of ‘Keynvor’, the musical artist’s name given to the Atlantic Ocean, by Universal Music.”
