The Dancehall Record Stores of NYC

Despite the transition from wax to digital, those passionate for the art of vinyl will always sniff out a record store in relinquished corners of the city. Here, Animal New York lends a hand via a glimpse into a few traders who specialize in selling dancehall – a leading genre of music which still plays a crucial role in cultural exports between Jamaica and New York. While only a diminutive amount of music nowadays see vinyl releases, dancehall and its offshoots have never stopped getting pressed, hence the livelihood of these record stores which stock both new and old dubplates. In this guide, the guys at Animal New York travel from Brooklyn, through Queens to Manhattan, and get a sneak view into the characteristic brick and mortars that stock both the hottest artists and nearly forgotten classics.
