An ex World War II prison in the Netherlands is becoming a record pressing plant, opening in August this year!
Two presses will be based in the prison, thanks to Deepgrooves, a vinyl pressing service founded by Chris Roorda and Pascal Thulin.
Deepgrooves says it will “mainly focus on smaller record labels and artists with specialty in the field of special editions including Limited Editions and colored vinyl.
“The global demand for vinyl continues to grow and the options to press vinyl records are limited. This has led to a situation where getting your records pressed is mostly done by a few large vinyl pressing plants resulting in a huge bottleneck.
“Deepgrooves has a user friendly one-stop-shopping concept where artwork, mastering and other services are being provided from a single point of contact.”
Deepgrooves also plans on installing a space for visitors to “experience the miraculous culture of pressing vinyl.”
