Names You Can Trust

the local—but very global—underground music scene


Names You Can Trust

In this time of increased xenophobia and nationalism, I hope our musical internationalism stands as an example of the type of fruitful cooperation that can occur when like-minded people of all persuasions get together
Mason, Producer

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.
