While Coloring Lessons only started back in 2018, the party has grown into one of New York City’s staples within the dance music community. Heavily focused around house, jazz, soul, and everything adjacent; the function spent the past 2 years embracing the musical elements of our black and brown ancestors. Elevated by the radio show & the T-shirt line, Coloring Lessons has come a long way since it’s first party, and now we’re introducing the next addition to the brand, Coloring Lessons Records.

The label, like the party, will be focused on building up artists from our city and beyond, with the sound indicative of the Coloring Lessons ethos- which is sharing music created and inspired by our ancestors of color, and teaching younger generations about the roots of this music.

Thus far, we’ve released a compilation featuring new music from various heavy hitters from our dance music community, including a new house jam from Kai Alce, a cinematic piece by Levon Vincent, hard techno from White Material’s Young Male, lush vocals from Jenifa Mayanja, the debut track from Love Injection co-founder Barbie Bertisch, new gospel from Coloring Lessons founders, musclecars, and much, much more.

We also have an exciting new release out now from Malik Hendricks, an NYC based DJ/producer who’s latest tracks are truly deep and reminiscent of the early 2000’s. The EP, entitled Cutting Shapes, is a deliciously deep and jazzy 5-tracker, featuring a stunning remix from Byron The Aquarius. 

Up next, Shelter (building it, still) is out September 17th, 2021.
