Vinyl Me, Please announces new pressing plant
Vinyl Me, Please is a Denver-based online subscription record service that is expanding with a new pressing plant. Located in the RiNo district, across from the Mission Ballroom, the new facility will be open in 2022. Upon opening, the facility will feature a lounge and bar, listening areas, and a full tour of the pressing process. Once complete, the facility will be a major destination for vinyl lovers in Denver.
The Denver-based company will also have the option to add plating capabilities to its pressing plant. The company is also planning to make its own stampers for records, which makes it one of the few all-in-one operations of its kind. Despite the growing demand for vinyl, the industry has struggled to keep up with the production pace. Vinyl Me, Please’s plant will help to improve the quality of the product and bring its price down while still keeping the high-end standards for vinyl.
New subscription program
The VMP News team has launched a new subscription program for members. Starting with one hand-picked record per month, the VMP has quickly expanded to four subscription programs, ranging from Essentials, which is the most popular, to Classics, which features jazz, blues, and soul records. More recently, Hip-Hop and Country have joined the lineup. The new subscription program is designed to keep subscribers informed about what is happening in the music world.
The new pressing plant is part of a bold statement about the future of the vinyl industry. It is an ambitious strategic move that seeks to cement VMP’s place as the leading subscription record service. As a result, the music industry is paying close attention. While most of the world is focusing its attention on the music industry’s future, vinyl’s future still remains uncertain. With the emergence of a new subscription service, the future of the industry is in question.
