In “Gotta Groove Records“, filmmaker Nick Cavalier took a really insightful look into the history and daily life at the long lasting eponymous vinyl pressing plant, a one-stop shop for all things vinyl based out of Cleveland, Ohio that truly believes in the medium they produce.
We believe that the vinyl record format is the last physical medium embodying sound recordings that will live for decades to come. With a few exceptions in the late 1990s, records have been at the merch tables of most artists and bands for over 60 years. Given the science behind how a record works (a mechanical operation dragging a stylus through a groove catching information sometimes as small as 0.1 microns and translating it to audio), it is truly a marvel that the format works at all. But, following a careful and regulated manufacturing process, the record brings a unique listening experience that no other format has done in the history of mankind.
