It requires a small army of technicians, a chain of skilled subcontractors, and lots of heavy machinery.
The process is neither cheap nor fast.
Founded by musician Wesley Wolfe, Tangible Formats is a one-man record plant where no order is too small, turnaround time is three weeks, and the prices are indie-friendly.
Local bands that peddle hot wax to their fans, international DJs who want to scratch their EDM tracks, juke box collectors who crave rare Blue Note 45s, the lovesick Romeo who wants his marriage proposal recorded after the fade-out on our song.
This is the small but loyal clientele that Mr. Wolfe s lathe-to-turntable movement caters to in today s increasingly fragmented music ecosystem.
