Capturing The Music [and art] of a City
Hip Hop • Punk • Folk • Metal • Electronic
Recorded over six months at multiple locations, Analog Trenton's 40 tracks capture the live experience and raw energy of Trenton NJ's vibrant DIY music scene. Recorded directly to magnetic tape and mixed in 100% analog, this diverse collection of music is an authentic record of a living and growing music scene.
Analog Trenton also features the work of 27 area artists! The packaging, labels and inserts feature original art showcasing the talent and vision of the city.
The vinyl LP features 13 tracks that best represent this great city and the double CD holds all 40 tracks. All live recording was 100% analog from mic to vinyl, recorded to 1" 16 track magnetic tape, and mixed down to 1/4" tape. Tracks that are digital-beat-based were also recorded live to tape and mixed down to tape. Mastering was done by renown mastering engineer Carl Rowatti of TruTone Mastering and the vinyl was pressed locally at Independent Record Pressing. The LP tracks were mastered separately to take full advantage of the dynamic range of vinyl.
