Instinct Records

Profile:
Founded as a dance label in a Greenwich Village living room, Instinct Records gained prominence in the early 1990s by releasing compilations of Acid Jazz-label material in the US. The simultaneous success of the label's first signing, electronic musician Moby, was built on by licensing and releasing seminal recordings from Rising High Records, Kickin Records, and Antler-Subway, as well as releasing music by local techno-oriented ambient musicians signed to the label. Instinct was purchased by Knitting Factory Records in 2003.
