Williams Street Records, LLC is an independent record company found by Jason DeMarco, based in Atlanta, Georgia. It is a joint venture of Williams Street Studios (a division of Turner Broadcasting System, which is in turn owned by Time Warner) and Warner Music Group (Time Warner's former record company) and it is distributed through Alternative Distribution Alliance. Under that label, they have released original works of music, some of which are related to their shows on Adult Swim. The label is run by founder Jason DeMarco.[1]

In February 2007 (the same year the record label was founded), Williams Street and Adult Swim teamed up with the independent hip-hop label Definitive Jux to produce an animated video for El-P's track "Flyentology" and release a compilation album titled Definitive Swim for free download, featuring tracks from most of the label's artists.
