Published May 08, 2013LCD Soundsystem may be done, but James Murphy's DFA Records is still alive and well. Red Bull Music Academy has chronicled the label's history with a mini-documentary called 12 Years of DFA: Too Old to Be New, Too New to Be Classic.
The 13-minute clip begins in New York in 2001 and traces the rise of hipster culture and the unexpected success of Murphy's collaborative business with Tim Goldsworthy and Jonathan Galkin. The mini-doc includes appearances from members of LCD Soundsystem, the Rapture, YACHT, Holy Ghost!, and others. Murphy is interviewed while chowing down on snacks on a cruise ship to Jamaica.
The clip was created by M ss ng P eces, a Brooklyn production company. Watch it below.
