We're proud to announce our second release on Capsule Labs Music, grab your copy on vinyl..
We completed a run of 1000 records in less than two weeks for Greenlight Management and the Re:Generation Music Project. The vinyl was included with the invitation to see the film's premiere during the Grammy awards.

We took advantage of a little break during the holidays to make some good progress on the build of our Fairchild clone. The new chassis has been milled to perfection by J.C. Engraving and we've started doing the final wiring.
We've come across quite a few articles about the resurgence of vinyl in the last week.
