Vinylize.it is the latest start-up to try and find a gap in the market by offering fans the opportunity to press their favourite SoundCloud tracks to vinyl.
So how does it work? Well, Vinylize users connect their SoundCloud account and create a project with the tracks they wish to buy on vinyl. After they aggregate the demand, they will notify the artist/label and provide users a turnkey solution which converts the demand to a crowdfunding/pre-order project on QRATES.
As told to The Next Web, Vinylize is fairly confident that the demand is there, from both artists and fans: “We’ve fully validated demand from artists and labels for vinyl record crowdfunding with QRATES. Now, by giving music fans the tools to notify their favorite artists of the tracks they want on vinyl, we believe it will accelerate crowdfunding projects created on the platform.”
