Independent Record Pressing

Independent Record Pressing (IRP)




Independent Record Pressing (IRP) was founded in 2015 in Bordentown, NJ by Dave Hansen (Exceleration Music) and Ben Swanson, Chris Swanson & Darius Van Arman (Secretly Group) along with Red Light Management. 


Founded with the vision to support and press records for independent labels, IRP began with six vintage Hamilton Presses made in the late 70s/early 80s. We have since partnered with Viryltech and currently operate a total of nine new 12” presses, producing 140g-180g records.


IRP has proudly manufactured millions of records, including some of the most important and highly regarded albums in the world.


A small example of artists pressed at IRP include Bad Religion, Big Thief, Bon Iver, Brittany Howard, Decendents, Elliot Smith, Fela Kuti, Iron Maiden, J Dilla, Mavis Staples, Pharcyde, Phoebe Bridgers, Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead, Ray Charles, The National, Tim McGraw, Tom Waits and many more.



Climate Neutral Certified:


In partnership with the nonprofit, The Climate Change Project, in 2023, IRP became a Climate Neutral Certified brand. Our commitment towards balancing our carbon footprint sees us joining a community that is working towards bettering the planet through consistent and positive business practices.
