Industry Insights: How to Run A Vinyl Only Record Label with I Love Acid
In their latest video, Point Blank were joined by Josh Doherty, the man behind Balkan Recordings, I Love Acid and one half of the acid house and slo-mo techno duo, Posthuman, to discuss running a vinyl only record label.
I Love Acid was forged back in 2007 where it began as a club night across Europe for those with a mutual love for Roland’s iconic 1980s bass synthesizer, the TB-303. Fast forward to 2014 and the ILA movement evolved into its very own radio show and imprint. Releasing records only on vinyl, 303 copies at a time, hand stamped and hand numbered, with no digital, the label has gained notoriety for its concept and pushing hidden gems from the underground dance scene strictly on wax.
If learning to set up your own record label is something you’re interested in, later this year Point Blank are launching a new course which specialises in working in the industry. Their BA (Hons) Music Industry Management Degree has a dynamic focus on production, manufacture, marketing and distribution of music as well as setting up a record label and more.
