Amarrass establishes the first record cutting facility in India in the 21st Century! We are thrilled to set up a new production facility in Gurgaon, India, where we have been busy over the Record Store Day 2017 weekend, cutting our first set of records! Analog remastered albums by Barmer Boys, Lakha Khan and the Palestinian-American band Painted Caves will be released at a 'Vinyl Revival' launch party on the 28th of April at Lodi-The Garden Restaurant in Delhi, followed by a series of field recordings, an album by the late Padma Shri Sakar Khan, Amarrass terrace sessions, and live concert recordings of Vieux Farka Tourè and Bombino from the Amarrass Desert Music Festival in 2011/2012.

While the initial focus and production will be on the Amarrass catalogue, and artists on the label, we hope to work with other artists in India (and elsewhere) to cut dubplates, limited edition copies of LPs/EPs and singles.

Each Amarrass record is individually hand-cut on precision-crafted machinery imported from Germany and assembled here in India. All the album artwork and jacket design is also done in-house at Amarrass. Vinyl finally enables us to present our archive of field recordings, live concerts and studio sessions in high fidelity - bringing the listener closer to the natural sound captured in the recordings sessions. Barmer Boys (Kesariya Balm), Lakha Khan's 'At Home' sessions, and Painted Caves self-titled debut album are now available in LP format for pre-order at our online store, and will be available through select retailers and online channels such as Amazon, Discogs and others.

"This record was pressed in Gurgaon, India at around 3 PM today. It was brought to Wild City #recordstoreday event by Ankur Malhotra from the label Amarrass Records the people behind the newly launched pressing plant. This was definitely the highlight of the day. We had a listen and it sounded great. On April 28th they are hosting a launch party for 3 of their albums in Delhi." - DJ MoCity
