Rampike Artwork

To offer specific listeners the vinyl experience, we present our hand printed album. This is a limited edition of 100 pieces from which 30 were send to our crowdfunders.

We can't honor trees without considering the sustainable production of an album. We see it as our duty to release our album as green as possible. In doing so, we hope to make others aware of the need to make the music industry more sustainable.

Honoring the tree concept, graphic artist Stefan van der Heuvel has grinded ash through his coffee machine to get an organic pigment. All of us participated in hand printing through a silk screen, thus the cover of this album is exceptionally tactile.

By buying this unique album you are supporting us as independent artists, making further progress possible. We thank you from the bottom of our heart.

Green vinyl production

Of course, we can't talk about trees without considering the sustainable production of an album. We see it as our duty to release our album as green as possible. In doing so, we hope to make others aware of the need to make the music industry more sustainable.

 

As we have looked into the green production of vinyl, we would like to give attention to Green Vinyl Records project, a collective of 8 companies that together are developing a sustainable and alternative production process. That process is based on the injection molding technique instead of pressing. They are also replacing the current plastic with an environmentally friendly material whereby maintaining the familiar LP feel is paramount. Together, they claim to provide energy savings of over 70%, a faster production process with less environmental impact.
