We are SoundsUP

Sound is top priority

Why make great music only to ruin it with dynamic compression? We believe that modern records, especially rock, can sound juicy and appealing without pushing the volume up to the clipping. Instead of releasing a dynamically over-compressed record, we work together with the artists to provide the top quality new mastering their music deserves. 

Every release is special

Being passionate collectors ourselves, we’ve always considered music as a piece of art. We produce visually unforgettable records that look just as stunning as they sound. With their beautiful materials, artwork and cover, our records will take pride of place in any collection. This approach makes our releases unique. You will feel the difference holding one of our LPs in your hand. 

Made in Germany

We are thorough in providing the highest quality, and we settle for nothing less. All our releases are made in Germany using the latest technology and we control every single step of the process – from printing the covers to pressing the vinyl.

We have taste for music

We don’t circulate around one specific musical genre. Each and every release we make is different and surely has something to open to you in terms of music. We know how it should sound like and how it should look like. Just try to rely on our taste and we won’t disappoint you.

We believe if something worth doing
It’s worth doing spectacularly

SoundsUP team

Our Team

We are a small team of passionate audiophiles who united to bring back music as a unique piece of art. Looking at today's music industry we realized we wanted to do something more than just colorize vinyl materials. We wanted the music to become alive right in the hands of the listener, with the sounds going UP.

We believe that music has no national borders, but since our releases are made exclusively in Germany, our headquarters is located in Berlin, Germany too. If you have any questions about our releases, want to make a wholesale deal or release a record with us, please let us know.

  • Release date: 3 Jul 2015
  • Pre-orders from: January 2015
Order Blindead - Absence (vinyl collector's edition) Black 180g Vinyl @ €29.90

The “Absence” of Blindead captured us by dark, fat, deep sound, incredible atmosphere and interesting concept songwriting. Not much actually can be described with appropriate words in couple of paragraphs about this album: non-standard rhythms, violin interludes, saxes, percussion and much more in this 56 minutes epic. We definitely consider it one of the best progressive albums of 2013, and absolutely must-hear for those who is passionate with complex music, intriguing to the very end and looking for something new on the scene.

Order Abney Park - Retro-Future Vagabond (vinyl collector's edition) Black 180g Vinyl @ €24.90

Abney Park is not a simple band for us. The proper word in all respects is Legendary. These guys are stylish, atmospheric, funny and serious at the same time.

Viza – Made in Chernobyl

  • Country: United States
  • Release date: 28 November 2014
Order Viza - Made in Chernobyl (vinyl collector's edition) Black 180g Vinyl @ €24.90

When we first discovered this band from US, we absolutely adored their style: rich Armenian folk sound which is a mix or light rock and traditional instruments with percussion. From the first glance (or the first sounds) we loved their open-minded way of compositions and musical aesthetics. Their friendship with Serj Tankian only underlined their unique songswriting. We strongly believe these guys are fun and energetic enough to be the part of everyone’s collection!

The first Viza release we are publishing is “Made in Chernobyl”. And we did a good job to make it look like something we are proud of! Here are some specs:

  • Exclusive vinyl edition limited to 500 copies
  • Slipcase of the bearskin with embossed band logo
  • Double gatefold with the inner circle cut.
  • Made-in-Germany 180g black LP
  • Separate band big photocard from the original artwork with the notes from the band provided especially for this LP reissue!
  • Serj Tankian was an executive producer for this LP and provided vocals for the one song (but you probably already know it).

Last but not least, we didn’t forget about THE sound. The record has been mastered from the original source preserving all the dynamics and the details especially for this vinyl edition. You will hear the difference. We promise.

Released on 28 November 2014!
