Arguably one of the most influential indie-dance labels of our time, DFA Records has seen its share of success in the ever-changing realm of electronic music. Headed by Tim Goldsworthy, James Murphy and Jonathan Glakin, DFA Records has carried the baton of dance music from the seminal eras of electroclash, dance-punk to the ongoing onslaught of quality disco. With an accolade of artists under its roster — Holy Ghost, LCD Soundsystem, Hercules and Love Affair, Hot Chip to name a few — the New York-based label surely has its own share of stories when looking back on the past 12 years. Here, Red Bull Music Academy has produced a short documentary capsulizing the label’s history thus far. Enjoy the 13-minute mini-doc above and share your thoughts below.
