The Nature of Sound

You can’t even begin to think of yourself as a record collector unless you’ve been asked by some bewildered person why you would want to buy big old-fashioned LPs. The same records they threw out and thought were junk, you or one of your digger brethren later hit the jackpot with copies of Rubber Soul, Gratitude, and Time Out at the Salvation Army. There are a group of people out there that have not, or maybe can not, hear the warmth of vinyl – the subtle thickness of sound that is simply not there on CD or MP3.

Black Dynamite soundtrack composer Adrian Younge produced this little video as a quick promo/infomercial about the Universal Audio company. UA was – and still is – key in developing equipment that created that unique and timeless warmth and light analog fuzz of all the best music from the 60s and 70s.

You do not have to be a gear-head in order to dig this video; of course the song Younge wrote for the video is great, but this short video also offers a quick insight into how recording equipment helps add another layer to how we come to love how music sounds.
