Because the real hero of Art Vinyl is the record sleeves themselves, we run a program of exhibitions that celebrate the best in sleeve design.


Gigolo Records


Gigolo has always been about much more than just the music. While the sound is of course central, it would not be Gigolo without a certain intangible finesse – that special extra something. Right since the start this has always been the founder’s policy: insist on better than the best. This perfectionism has been carried through to the graphic department – each cover is produced and finally approved by Gigolo founder Hell himself with painstaking attention to detail.

As any good label should be, it as much a life-style, an aesthetic, even a philosophy, as it is merely a record label. So in the ten year career of the label, the cover artwork has constantly played a critical role.
