PLZ Make It Ruins has teamed up with the Arts Council England for a new charity compilation vinyl record. Titled PLZ LOCKED GROOVES, the album will feature 40 locked groove tracks – each no more than 1.8 seconds long. Some of the artists included on the album are Arca, Four Tet, Octo Octa, and PLZ Make It Ruins founder Vegyn. It will also feature popular artists from a wide range of genres including Skrillex, 100 gecs, Kenny Beats and HAIM. The label has noted that net proceeds from the album will go to both the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Liberty UK.
For the uninitiated, locked groove records differ from your traditional vinyl in that each track on the record will continuously loop until the arm is physically moved to the next groove or track. As one would imagine, an entire album of locked grooves can make for a valuable tool in a DJ’s arsenal. An example of a locked groove record is demonstrated in the video below.
PLZ Make It Ruins and Arts Council England’s PLZ LOCKED GROOVES is set to release on Friday, December 4th. You can pre-order the upcoming charity compilation vinyl on the label’s website.
