About Us

Lipstick Crush Records is an American synthwave label dedicated to bringing you the very best the genre has to offer, on vinyl and cassette.  Born out of a passion for 80’s-inspired synth on vinyl, the idea for the label was first conceived in January 2018 with a mission to provide high quality physical releases and a special interest in resurrecting many of the scene’s classic albums by giving them the vinyl treatment.  The name Lipstick Crush was a natural fit with the label’s focus on the lighter side of the genre, not to mention being a homage to the track “Lipstick Blush” by one of the label’s signature artists, Sellorekt/LA Dreams. Since the beginning, Lipstick Crush has operated under the guiding principle of respect.  Respect for the artists by offering a true partnership, commitment, and transparency.  Respect for the fans by offering reasonably priced, high quality records and packaging shipped with care in the highest quality mailers.  Jointly based in New Orleans and Minneapolis, Lipstick Crush is proud to not only operate in the United States, but also manufacture their products stateside as well.  And with distribution throughout Europe and beyond, fans all across the world can look forward to all that this burgeoning label has to offer, with less customs fees and better global shipping rates.  So stay tuned and don’t change that channel because there’s always something good on…
