Label founded in 1991 by Richard D. James and Grant Wilson-Claridge. In the beginning, the label pressed Aphex Twin's recordings to vinyl as a way of making music he and his friends wanted to hear. Due to their geographical isolation in Cornwall, they did not have access to the music they wanted to hear and so they decided to create their own.
The label moved to London in 1992, going on to release artists such as The Bug and DJ Scud as well as Richard D. James himself. The label has also re-released old classics including 12-inches by 808 State.
