Mike Dixon "Keeps Craft of Cutting Records Alive"

Permanent Linkby Steve E. on Sat May 10, 2014 4:09 pm

We Lathe Trolls are always proud when one of our own gets some much-deserved media attention. Here's an awesome article and video about Mike Dixon, often known around here as piaptk ("People In A Position to Know"). The video spotlights his contagious exuberance, his passionate supercool-geekitude about record-making, and his beautiful and unusual individually cut records. It shows off his ridiculously extensive collection of Presto 6Ns, each with an attractive new carrying cabinet. And, it contains an unusually succinct and understandable explanation of just how record cutting works.

(We will therefore forgive the fact that the article link uses the horrendous and incorrect term "vinyls.")

This month Mike is cutting records in Paris with Kris Dorr, for Converse. I am hoping they will post some blog items of their own, but in the meantime, do read this.
