Secret 7″ is an art show, meets charity, meets vinyl in the very best way. This annual project has been selling 100 limited copies of 7 hit represses each with a one of a kind cover. That’s correct math wiz, 700 unique records on display, once a year… it’s an event. After the show the records go up for sale supporting Secret 7″s charity of choice. This year they London-based crew is focused on ‘Mind’ a mental health charity.
Like icing on the cake, they’ve taken the vinyl passion to another level with Planar 1/1 a similar project with full rigged turntables. Named after Raga’s Planar 1, the crew enlisted the help of 10 artists to transform these wheels of steel into a canvas. Scroll down to take a quick peek into the collection.
Secret 7″ and Greenwich Peninsula present Planar 1/1, an auction of ten unique Rega turntables created by artists including Gavin Turk, Jeremy Deller and Jake & Dinos Chapman. This auction is in aid of Mind, the mental health charity. Since 2012 Secret 7″ has raised over £200,000 for various charities through combining music and art.
Bidding closes on September 12th at 21:00PM GMT. Click here to learn more about the Planar 1/1 project and details of a closing event at Ace Hotel in Shoreditch, London.
