Record Label: PVD
Open Crates started as a local Jersey City meetup for diggers to share music.
At any session you’d find an OG putting a newbie onto a heavy 60’s jazz groove, two producers swapping clean prog-rock drums, or your average dude sharing a track from a new artist that no one in the group had ever heard.
Re:Crates - the first Open Crates 7” series - continues the vibe of our dig sessions by reinterpreting familiar and obscure records found in the crates of diggers worldwide. This series is for the neurotic collector that needs every version of Herbie Hancock’s Watermelon Man, to the dedicated Bandcamper who cops a new indie record every week.
Each release is inspired by a personal encounter shared amongst the Open Crates crew. It’s our way of sharing a small piece of our vibe with the world … through the beats.
