In the ultimate collaboration between old and new, Sonos and vinyl-based charity Secret 7” have teamed up to re-animate a vintage jukebox that can stream 7”s throughout your home.
Secret 7” take 7 tracks from 7 artists, and presses each track to 7” 100 times. The records are then cased in sleeves from designers all over the world (including noted artists such as Gilbert & George and Sir Antony Gormley), exhibited, and then sold for £50 apiece- with all the proceeds going to charity. Despite not being able to tell what you’ve got till you’ve taken it home (it’s a “secret” 7”, remember?), since debuting in 2011 over 2,700 singles have been sold, raising over £130,000 for charity. In 2016, Secret 7” have selected Amnesty International as their charity, who will receive all the proceeds from the auction.
The spectacularly retro jukebox will contain all 35 of the Secret 7” releases of the past five years, including the music of Diana Ross, Massive Attack, Tame Impala and John Lennon. This magical music machine also allows you to house and play your very own 45s, and if you’re not into banking your own coins in your lounge room, there’s also a button that allows you to play music for nothing, as well as taking all coins.
