WATCH Red Bull Music Academy’s Short Film of The History of the Iconic NYC Label, DFA


Perhaps one of the most iconic record labels for electronic music and well, music with a definitive kick drum, DFA Records is a tight-knit family of artists and visionaries that don’t really need an introduction. From LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, The Juan MacLean, Nancy Whang, Holy Ghost!, YACHT, and so many more, DFA Records has a reputation for making music that is perfect for essentially anyone, but especially White hipsters. Hey, just being honest, DFA caters to that audience and they even admit it in their short film.

Teaming up with Red Bull Music Academy, a creative NYC-based production team, DFA records sat down for a short film that explores the craze and allure of DFA and how it’s become an indie sensation that gets the kids to dance. Featuring interviews of everyone aforementioned, the short film takes a look at their in-house production, marketing, promotion, and everything it takes to do all things DFA.

Titled, Too Old To Be New, Too New To Be Classic: 12 Years of DFA, this short film is available online for you to watch and enjoy. Immerse yourself in the culture of DFA.
