SXSW Trade Show: Pressing Records from Pellets

Jay Millar from United Record Pressing had a booth at the SXSW Trade Show, where he showed us how vinyl goes from handful of vinyl pellets to a trendy slab of tunes. Records start as pellets that are then melted down into a hockey puck sized disc, which is then pressed with 1,800 pounds of pressure. The excess is then cut away and melted back down to make more records.
