downtown 161



Downtown 161 represents the House label and distributor from New York, USA headed by Linda Perrone. The long time running NY imprint was founded in 1991 and ever since has developed an amazing back catalogue containing over 100 releases.

Beside being a famous record label, Downtown 161 is also a record store. Most of the time Downtown 161, a record distributor in Lower Manhattan, is off limits to the public. But once a week it becomes an unusual kind of record store for friends of Vinylmania, a Greenwich Village shop that closed in 2007. Customers run their hands over items in fancy packaging, chat with the seller and brag about their collections — all the typical stuff that grows more endangered every time another store closes.

Sublabel: Downtown 304.

Downtown 161 is the favourite home platform for a variety of artists such as: Kerri Chandler, Romanthony, Brutal Bill, Technique, Wayne Rollins, Sir Dane, Timmy Regisford, DJ Sneak, Black Evita, Carroll Park, Klubhead, Theresa Thomason, Correct Impact, Valerie Harley, Bas Noir, Ian Friday, Roy Davis Jr, Gary Davis, amongst many many others.
