Formed by UB40 in 1980 so they could keep total control over their record output and eventually release tracks by other artists. A worldwide distribution deal was struck with Virgin Records in 1982. They were the first label to release a dub album to appear in the British pop charts - 'Present Arms In Dub'. They also had the first commercial application of a British method of mass producing holograms with the limited edition version of 'UB44' having a hologram covering the record sleeve.
