I Love Vinyl with Danilo Braca aka danyb



The I Love Vinyl crew sat down with Danilo Braca, aka DJ danyb, the man behind the Nu-Disco and Deep House radio station The Sound of New York City to listen to some prized records from his personal collection and talk about life.

The Sound of New York City doesn't sound like something that started in Italy, but it did. Rome native, Braca started the 24/7 live internet radio station out of his love of for the seminal NYC nightclubs, like David Mancuso's The Loft and Larry Levan's Paradise Garage, and a feeling that this legacy was not getting the exposure it deserved. Somewhere along the way, the station caught the attention of some discerning angels who urged Braca to relocate to NYC, and The Sound of New York City came home. A couple years later, the station is thriving, with many notable resident and guest selectors.

Recorded live at the April 2015 open house festivities at Pioneer Works.

I Love Vinyl was founded in the Summer of 2009 by Ben Goldfarb aka DJ Scribe and five other seasoned DJs hailing from NYC, Chicago, Baltimore, and beyond. With over 100 years of spinning, and over 100,000 records between them, the I Love Vinyl all-stars now include DJ Scribe, Amir Abdullah, Jon Oliver, OP!, and Shawn Dub. The organic history of this vinyl-loving crew revolves around their underground Brooklyn dance party and their forays in radio as early users of Mixcloud as a platform for their free-form style. For their decidedly un-mixed radio show, they invite guest vinyl selectors, from seasoned DJ's and collectors to musicians and visual artists, as much for the records they bring as for the stories they have to tell about them.
