R.I.P. Vinyl Pressing in Canada

R.I.P. Vinyl Pressing in Canada


Toronto-based DJ/producer/songwriter vitaminsforyou just released his new single Flesh Python and has inadvertently made history in the process. It is the last piece of vinyl manufactured here in Canada.

"It is true that the vinyl factory is closing due to the retirement of our master pressman and plant manager", confirmed Aaron Zon, Vice President of Music Manufacturing Services (MMS). "We are indeed the last Canadian plant standing (that I'm aware of anyway)".

While he assured me that MMS will still offer vinyl pressing through a plant they partner with in Nashville, this is still the end of an era of sorts for the coolest music format.

And what does Canadian vinyl's swan song sound like? Pretty good! One of blogTO's favourite remixers of 2007, vitaminsforyou put together an impressive single. "Flesh Python" is one of his best original songs to date and the single includes three remixes, one of them coming from Toronto's own Stop Die Resuscitate.
