Joe Muggs's Grime 2.0 pressed to vinyl via Ninja Tune crowdsourced repress service

Grime 2.0, the recent compilation put together by Wire contributor Joe Muggs, is being pressed to vinyl, following a successful run on crowdsourcing vinyl repress site Beat Delete. The site, run by Ninja Tune, lets you register your interest next to out of print albums or singles. Once 200 people put their name down, the record will be repressed.

Beat Delete was started by Martin Dobson at Ninja Tune, and so the service largely deals with their releases, but also incorporates sublabels and a handful of other imprints, including Leaf, Ghostly, Sunday Best, Accidental, Brainfeeder, Tru Thoughts, Bad Panda, Beggars, Domino, Werkdiscs. Dobson says they're looking to add more labels, and asks anyone interested to email
