Biome, Colloids, Diamond Black, Rob Cass of Cave Productions, Clintons, Vinyl Factory, Deep Grooves, National Physical Laboratory, Innovate UK, Key Production, Ninja Tune, Beggars Group and GZ Media have all played a part in getting to this point… Level Studio ethical branding consultants have been a vital support, and being in close contact with various members of the AIM Climate Action Group and of course with Fay and Lewis of Music Declares Emergency has put us amongst the many, many people in the music industry that want change to happen now, with that change rooted in partnership and collaboration.

Vinyl is such an important part of our experience of music, it’s brilliant (and a relief to be honest!) that we now have a non-toxic and sustainable solution to pressing records”
