Vinyl Spotlight: Chill

[Edit 2021-07-07: We’ve since corrected the specs of Poké & Chill to reflect the correct cutting and pressing plant credits]

Introducing our new Vinyl Spotlight series to celebrate the people and companies who manufacture our records.

We take pride in putting music first and prioritizing the audiophile quality that fans of video game music vinyl have come to expect from Materia’s releases — and from releases distributed by our label friends on the Materia Store!

Our first Vinyl Spotlight focuses on three of our biggest releases with over 10k units collectively sold: the Chill series; lofi video game music produced by Mikel and Helynt, and pressed on wax by Materia Collective, stamped by NiPro Records, and cut/mastered by multi Grammy-award-winning engineer Jeff Powell
