In The Clouds – Modern Vinyl Record
What is a vinyl record? We already know about phonograph records or simple records. It was analog sound storage. But in the mid-2000s, the music record started to be known as a vinyl record or only vinyl.
In The Clouds is a New Jersey-based company since 2011. Since the beginning, the company had the sole target to use out of the box ideas to provide a great experience to the music lovers by creating unique modern vinyl records.
Music is at the heart of everything we do, and Creativity is what drives us. ~ In The Clouds ~
