Hailing from Croatia where they were finding LPs being discarded in mass amounts, Drale, Mirta & Tomo started with their grandparents' old records, but now have friends and family donating whatever they've got to this awesome initiative.

Featuring designs ranging from musical in nature to cinematic, Drale, Mirta & Tomo are helping to divert what would otherwise end up in a landfill. You can check out the aptly titled DMT Waste Art over on their Facebook page for more information.
