A couple of days ago we did this little trip to Leipzig, to visit our pressing plant R.A.N.D. Muzik. We must say, it was a notably insightful and interesting visit. Big up to Enning and Sven who showed and explained basically everything that is part of the pressing process. Shit, maybe with all that knowledge, we’ll do this ourselves from now on! But seriously, great folks, great company. This is how the whole thing went down.
Reznik did a good job as our safety advisor.
Smoking still sucks. 🙂
the production line.
Wet labels suck on a record. So they need to be dried in this thing right here.
Adam doing a double peace sign, because he is so happy.
We might be living in the age of digitization, but let’s face it, a ducktaped hammer is always the best problem solver.
This is how professionals look like. Enning and Sven.
House Music my ass. Long live Punk!
A sad little anecdote: For our KM020 picture disc, the inserted artwork was printed by a traditional printing plant from Leipzig. It was their very last assignment, before it was shut down. And ironically, our artwork read “The party is over” on the inside of the seal ring. 🙁
Pressing records is fucking rocket science!
We took these babies home, by the way.
