Repercussions #11: “99 Records”

Repercussions 99 Records

99 Records was a label run out of New York’s West Village in the early 1980s which, over its brief and troubled lifetime, blended the aftershock of punk with disco, dub, funk and proto hip-hop in a catalogue that includes some of the most influential records of the era – records that would have a lasting and profound impact on artists such as LCD Soundsystem, Carl Craig and Optimo, and was a critical inspiration for DFA Records. In this episode of Repercussions, Stuart Buchanan rewinds through 99 Records release slate, featuring Liquid Liquid, ESG, Bush Tetras, Maximum Joy, Y Pants and more.
