This past Friday, I had the opportunity to check out OHNY’s Factory Friday over at Brooklyn Phono, one of the last remaining record producers on the East Coast. With the resurgence lately of vinyl music, Brooklyn Phono has seen a steady stream of business both for music’s sake and for art’s sake. They not only produce vinyl records for many local independent record labels but they also do small batch gallery commissions as well (some of which we got to see in person at the tour).

One of the more surprising things to me about Brooklyn Phono was its size despite the volume of records pumped out of the location. The operation was probably staffed by no more than 15 people working in various positions (both machinery and office labor) and the place seemed to be well oiled to take on any job, regardless of special requests or production amounts. Overall, I was thoroughly impressed with the tour and would highly recommend a visit to anybody who is curious about how vinyl records are made.
