On Friday 13 – Saturday 14 December, the world’s first 3D record printing shop will open in central London!! Starring Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke and his chosen emerging artist Bobbie Gordon releasing their brand-new, original track ‘Down Boy’ (BACARDÍBeginnings)on 3D printed record – the very first time an original track will released and sold this way. 3D printing is really exciting, you can pretty much print anything, so this event marks a real milestone in technological developments. And I can’t wait to hear how the vinyl sounds!
A launch party to celebrate the release of the track and 3D printed limited edition vinyls will take place on Thursday 12th December, (and I am one of the lucky few on the guestlist!) with Kele Okereke and Bobbie Gordon performing their new track ‘Down Boy’ (BACARDÍ Beginnings) for the very first time. Fans can win tickets to the party and see 3D printing in action by keeping an eye on the BACARDÍ UK Facebook page.
Each record, priced at £10 will also be sold in limited edition record sleeves specially designed by Kate Moross. Famed for her energetic style and love of three sided shapes and typography, the London based illustrator, designer and art director has created four different cover designs for fans to choose from. Plus free food, free cocktails – whats not to like?!
Here’s a sneak peak of whats in store:
