About Softwax

Softwax Record Pressing was founded by two friends from Miami that have always had a love for music and especially vinyl. Since the last pressing plant in Philly was running in the 80’s, we thought it’d be a good idea to get one back in our lovely city. With a lot of help from our friends we started production in January 2020, just months before the pandemic hit us. With the amazing support from our local community and the ever expanding music industry we’ve been able to stay open and keep turning out records. Get to know us!
