A startup is providing a unique service that turns your digital music library into real records

A new startup wants to make SoundCloud tracks more tangible by converting them into actual vinyl records. Selecting which songs to create into LP records will be based on popularity and demand. Vinylize explains on its website that users will connect to its service using their SoundCloud account to curate the tracks. Based on aggregated demand, Vinylize will then contact the artists/labels and convert the request into a crowdfunding project on QRATES.
