Personal Touch Vinyl provides short-run vinyl record cutting services aimed at DJs, producers, bands and labels. We work on the German made VR-T560 that cuts records in real-time, one at a time. Available in 7” 10” and 12”, these are long-lasting records, very similar in quality to a factory pressed record you’d buy in a store.
The lathe is operated by Jackson Darby, an active member of the music scene in Canada and abroad and a member of bands including Persons, NPNP and Freaky Boos. Jackson is an experienced producer, DJ, sound artist and engineer with a degree in Electroacoustics from Concordia University and training from Ulrich Sourisseau, the maker of the T560. He is also the founder of Personal Records; a label that creates sonic artifacts for left field music projects as well as Cold Cache Records; an imprint that releases forward thinking 12"s for club use.
