Vinyl Strikes Back

The Vinyl Factory Manufacture from thevinylfactory on Vimeo.

Nothing is better than a vinyl. It is small piece of art, it sounds different, it is more classic, we love the big artworks and of course you give a big respect when you go to a gig and see the dj spinning vinyl records! Vinyl Factory Manufacturing (Ex Portal Space Records) has established itself as a leading manufacturer of quality record pressings. The BBC has featured the Vinyl Factory Manufacturing (link 1), (link 2)


Formed in France in the early '70s, the Kongas boasted several members that would change the face of disco music, among them Don Ray and Cerrone. Tattoo Woman is from the group's second album called Africanism.

Lucinda Slim

If you’ve ever been to a Friday deep funk night at Madame Jojo’s in Soho, you may have seen her spinning some dynamite vinyls along with Keb Darge and Andy Smith. More than a hot dj girl, Lucinda Slim (aka Nia Saw) has also been a vocalist at Zap Mama and a collaborator of the Haggis Horns and the Dap Kings. “All This Time”, her first solo recording on MPM, is a haunting old school soul tune produced by Belgian producer Krewcial and played by The Lone Stars. New tracks will soon follow...

p.s Watch the girl wake up in her LDN apartment to find a box of vinyls delivered to her door…

Circlesquare’s new album is exactly what it says. Songs about dancing and drugs. He perfectly combines rock elements with minimalist electronica and meaningful lyrics with a deep clear voice that sometimes sounds like whispering. His new album from our favorite !K7 records is one of the best in 2009 and the single Dancers one of the highlights.

“Where the world is a better place, it’s a better place

Now that everybody started to dance

now we are all dancers..”
