It hasn’t taken long, but here we are, staring down the barrel of the first ever commercially released 3D printed record. Earlier this year researcher Amanda Ghassaei sent a series of (somewhat distorted) shockwaves around the music industry when she posted instructions and prototypes of the first ever 3D printed record onto the open source blog Instructables.
Lenzman is returning to Australia in October to promote his recently released debut album on Metalheadz – “Looking At The Stars”.

They think modern electronic music is taking attention away from them. For me it’s not about competing… I’d love to see both worlds work a little closer together.”
