We’ve teamed up with BORN.com and FACT to make releasing on vinyl easier.

It may be easier than ever for people to hear your music, but for many musicians – even ones who have built up significant fan bases – releasing it on vinyl can still be daunting.

That’s why we’re launching VF Selects. There’s more great music out there than ever that deserves to be on vinyl, and we want to make that happen with as little risk to artists as possible.

Teaming up with the curated crowdfunding site BORN.com and our friends at FACT magazine, we’re looking for artists – both established and up-and-coming – to submit their music to VF Selects and if we think you’ve got the sound and the audience to sell out a run of records, then we’ll try to make that happen.

The music can already be out on non-vinyl formats or it can be totally unheard – we want to release a combination of music that has already resonated with fans digitally and music that’s completely new. And it’s not just artists we want to hear from. If there’s someone you want to see a vinyl release from, use the same form below to recommend them.

Why send your music to VF Selects?

– A guaranteed, efficient turnaround of six weeks, with top-of-the-line quality product manufactured at The Vinyl Factory pressing plant.

– Your music will be posted to FACT’s 1.8 million unique visitors per month so even if you don’t hit the target, you’ll reach a massive audience.

– Through BORN.COM’s curated approach to crowd-funding we can guarantee that no artist loses money, and that your record will be listed alongside the most innovative new names in fashion, design and more.

If your music is selected, we’ll launch a BORN.COM campaign to crowd-fund 400 vinyl copies with top-of-the-line mastering and full artwork, and we’ll work with you on a set of rewards so that fans get more than just a record for their contribution.

So whether you’re an artist looking to release your music on vinyl or a fan hoping to recommend an artist for VF Selects, fill out the form below and we’ll take things from there.
