Chinatown Records 華埠錄音 is a homegrown community effort to celebrate the richness of music, memory, and history that comes with inherited family collections. From Chinatown block parties to sonic family histories to endless listening and research, Chinatown Records is an ever-growing record of the people we love who bring all this music back to life with us.
Chinatown Block Party
Holding close the memories of Corky in a Box on Mosco Street with Think!Chinatown and friends, all the way back to jam parties with Basement Workshop and fellow Lower East Side arts groups of the 70’s and 80’s, Chinatown Block Party 夏日傾情 invites us to reimagine the places where music can bring us together, across borders and generations.

Research & DJ
I also DJ live events, listening sessions, radio shows, and custom playlists to bring all this Chinatown music and history back out into the neighborhood and beyond. I especially love working with community groups to walk y'all through / be creative about how to bring my DJing to you!
Sonic Histories & Workshops
And I want you to have these special conversations with your loved ones too! So I teach workshops about how to use music to start these conversations and get to know your family and neighbors.
