In 2001 the Binary sub-label was created to feature more dynamic electronic music, closer to techno and Berlin School ambient.
Also in 2001, Hypnos began a partnership to distribute releases from The Foundry, an ambient and experimental label from Berkeley, California. All releases under this partnership have the Foundry/Hypnos logo on them, but maintain the Foundry catalog numbers. The first combined release was fou.11. The partnership was since dissolved.
Distributed in the USA by Soleilmoon Recordings.
