ADN was established in 1983 as the first Italian fanzine for experimental new music published in English. The very first issue was called "L'Amore del Nipote" which set the trend for all labels as acronyms of ADN. The fanzine published 8 issues through to Spring 1986, with the later issues (co-released with "Skeletal Work") including optional sampler cassettes. The booklet and cassette idea carried on with the series of various artist releases called "Out Of Standard".
Most of their early releases were ADN Cassettes. For their vinyl releases, post new-wave and industrial music came out on the label 'A Dull Note', whilst avant-garde and "RiO" Rock In Opposition (left-field experimental rock) releases came out on 'Auf Dem Nil'. There was also a short-lived CD label 'Alma De Nieto' and some other name variations. A few 'Auf Dem Nil' releases were also branded "Recommended Records Italia". In 2014 ADN has restarted with 3 new labels " Artisti del Novecento" (R.I.O. and Electronics) "Apparémment des Notes" (re-editions and obscure artists) and "Agnostic Dumplings Nursery" with the compilation dedicated to Marco Veronesi (who died in 2013)
