How it works…
To make use of the service you have to connect your SoundCloud account and create a project with the tracks that you wish to buy on vinyl.
Then the nice people at Vinylize It aggregate the demand. They notify the artists and record labels and provide them with a turnkey solution which converts the demand to a crowd funding/pre-order project on QRATES.
The company has responded to the feedback they have received from artists…
“We’ve fully validated demand from artists and labels for vinyl record crowd funding with QRATES. Now, by giving music fans the tools to notify their favourite artists of the tracks they want on vinyl, we believe it will accelerate crowd funding projects created on the platform.”
It’s a novel and specialised approach that should be welcomed in our modern, innovative tech era. Soon you could find yourself getting some of your favourite SoundCloud jams pressed to vinyl at your request.
