Positive Beat Lathe Series is an ongoing collection of experimental short run (editions of 25) 10-inch lathe records cut on clear hand-fabricated polycarbonate. All releases are lo-fi and monophonic. Lathe cutting differs from traditional vinyl in that the music is transferred in real time by way of a needle etching a translation of sound vibrations onto the surface of the record. Because of this the grooves are shallow, and therefore, more sensitive to dust on the playing surface.
The series comes enveloped in hand screen printed sleeves by Charlie Wagers featuring textural images provided by the artists.
