What is great about vinyl releases is not only the analogue sound and collectability but also the sensation of touching the sleeve, accurately taking the record out, putting it on a turntable with this special feeling in the fingers and putting the needle on for the first time.
It is also the idea of the merge of sound and art, which go together for centuries whether it is a performance, dance, or nowadays, video art. Every vinyl release comes with some design – be that a stamp, a label logo, or as in the case of collectibles and releases we want to list here – a thought-through art, created by one artist for another artist.
Our first gallery of release covers features those of Plastikman, Model 500, Robert Hood, Helena Hauff, TCB, Vakula, Anton Zap and some more.
