Lost Planet Records was born out of necessity and a love of 60s science fiction. A group of working musicians needed a way to release material they had recorded themselves on a tape recorder in their living room. Their goal was to produce something as faithful to the original recordings as possible while maintaining a somewhat nostalgic do-it-yourself aesthetic, harkening back to the days when tapes, records and four-track reigned supreme. The final results, both the product and the creation process itself, proved to be such a rewarding experience that it was decided to carry on as an active recording label.

Lost Planet Records specializes in mobile, analog recordings; we bring professional equipment to your practice space, studio or gig and capture all sounds on tape. This allows for a far more relaxed recording experience in a familiar environment. We offer post-recording services that include mastering, tape duplication, digital file conversion and album design. In addition, we also offer digital-to-analog conversion services for any pre-existing digital recordings.
