Live on Télé-Barbès NAMES YOU CAN TRUST. Record Selection When our favorite label sets up shop in our backroom for an all vinyl set of new and old gems, we know there is hope. There is, right? Names You Can Trust is an independent record label based out of Brooklyn, NY. Since 2004, the label has manufactured a mix of vintage & modern sounds typical of the New York experience – – spanning Afro-Latin, Reggae, Disco, Dance & Instrumental Music. NYCT has operated on the cutting edge of the intimate connection between New York City’s immigrant population and its global roots, having debuted several new-generational acts from the burgeoning markets of South America including Colombia, Brazil, Peru & Argentina. The label’s constantly expanding roster is a perfect glimpse into the local yet global New York City underground.
