DeWolff breaks world record studio-to-store

09 June 2023

It's already been more than a week since Dutch band DeWolff officially broke the world record studio-to-store! In 2 hours, 59 minutes and 38 second, the band beat former record holder Jack White with more than one hour. Recording, mixing, mastering, distributing and selling, the entire process was done within this fairly short amount of time.

The record in question contains the song 'Rosita Rapida', a song with a duration of 16 minutes of their latest album Love, Death & In Between (2023), which has been prolonged for four minutes more on this particular record. Beforehand, Jack White wished the band good luck, jokingly commenting 'Break the record (not literally)'. White does not seem to be bothered DeWolff beat his record.

A few lucky people were able to experience the entire day up close and snag a record. In case you missed it:

DeWolff consists of Robin Piso (Hammond organ) and the brothers Pablo (vocals/guitar) and Luka van der Poel (drums), and is internationally highly regarded for their energetic mix of rock, blues, and soul and has already released nine studio albums.

DeWolff will perform at PHIL on Saturday, the 30th of September, as part of the first edition of the Haarlem Vinyl Festival. During the daytime program earlier that day, the band wil  talk about the ten records that have influenced their lives and careers. The audience gets the chance to ask questions about their experiences during the record attempt, and a limited number of the 12-inch records will be available. Tickets for their performance at PHIL are available here, the Q&A session is accessible for Vinyl Culture and Weekend Pass ticket holders, available here.
