The factory behind Jamaica’s reborn vinyl industry launches crowdfunding campaign
A record-pressing plant with historic reggae roots.
Florida-based SunPress Vinyl has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for the expansion of their factory and label.
The company is housed in the former Final Vinyl HQ, founded in the 1970s by pioneering Jamaican producer Joe Gibbs. In its previous incarnation the factory was responsible for pressing and distributing all of Studio One’s output, including records from Bob Marley, Toots and the Maytals and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry.
