About Blacklight records

Blacklight Records was founded in the spring of 2011, with the mission of producing the highest quality vinyl records. We focus on producing limited edition releases on vinyl of legendary albums that never were heard in this way before. Although most people thought that vinyl records would never make a comeback, it is a fact that the real and diehard music lovers still prefer real and true products. Therefore, vinyl records still dominate the collections of many music fans all over the world. And even the younger generation of music lovers that has grown up with bits and bytes, discovered more and more the beauty of vinyl and the feeling it gives when the needle hits the record for the first time.

Listening to music is more than having a sound in the background. Not like the music you hear in big supermarkets and shopping malls. Real music is emotion, it’s happiness, it’s anger, and it reaches into your heart never to come out again. It is a way of life.

With this definition of music in mind, we started Blacklight Records. A back to the roots experience because we focus on music we really love. We don’t only concentrate on one specific style of music, but enjoy the whole spectrum of music and let this guide our choices in what we produce or not.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
