Launched by Ben Wallace and Joel Woods, the factory has one Viryl Technologies WarmTone™ Record Press, with the ability to make 800 records per day.

“I got my father’s collection in a box – I don’t want to hand my son a Spotify playlist,” Wallace shared.

Wallace and Woods have also opened a record shop in central Aukland with the same name, stocking new albums, turntables and tech, merch and books.

You can find them at 111 Wellesley Street West, Auckland, or head here for more info.
