A couple weeks ago, we threw a party at Villain, in Williamsburg, to celebrate the people who were included in a feature we published all the way back in April, The 100 Most Influential People in Brooklyn Culture. There was a ton of booze, courtesy of Jameson and KelSo, food courtesy of Mable’s, and DJ sets by artists on Brooklyn’s own Godmode Records. Everyone was beautiful and cool and smart, and it really was just the best—from what I heard, at least. The truth is I spent most of the night upstairs interviewing some of our guests about their contributions to the world of Brooklyn Culture, and about what it is that they think continues to make this place tick. We’ll be rolling these out over the next week or so, but let’s get started with Ryan Schreiber, Broklynite and founder of Pitchfork, the single most influential and divisive music publication online or in print.
