The Orbit is designed and assembled by U-Turn Audio in their Boston area workshop. U-Turn was founded by three vinyl lovers, who brought their idea to Kickstarter in December 2012.
The album covers are weathered, often with marks or writing from previous owners, and the vinyl discs are usually scratched or warped. The character of each copy, distinctly shaped by its history, is told through the physicality of the media.
LA-based beat maker TOKiMONSTA has perfected the art of using the confines of her bedroom studio in her favor. She riffs on the joys of digging in the crates for that perfect sample.

THIS WEEK ON THE TURNTABLE
"Solitude Is Bliss"Tame Impala - Innerspeaker - (Modular Recordings | MODVL-128)
The music video for "Solitude Is Bliss" was directed by Megaforce in Kiev, Ukraine (2010). It features a man dancing around the carnage in an almost post-apocalyptic world where there are flaming cars and dead bodies in the streets, which is meant to represent the man's mind, post-shock. During the choruses, the man is transported back to the "real world" hussle and bussle and finds himself having to push and shove through crowds of people in suits.
The video took a bit of criticism for not fitting in with Tame Impala's psychedelic sound. Parker said "We really like how it's the opposite of what you expect... I kind of like to think of it as not the clip to the song, but if that scene was in a movie, then that song would be a really cool song to have over that scene."
