Chaos Recordings

Chaos Recordings

Profile:
Chaos Recordings was formed in 1992 by Sony Music Entertainment as "A Dimension of Columbia Records" (according to label copy). Although Chaos was home to various rock, hip-hop, dance, and Reggae artists on its own, its greatest prominence was its position as the sub-distributor of several Def Jam/RAL catalog titles from 1992 to 1994 when Sony's stake in Def Jam was purchased by PolyGram.

At that very same time in late 1994, Sony Music dissolved Chaos and its catalog structure into a new U.S. West Coast-based division called The Work Group which existed until 2000. However, Chaos did continue on as an imprint for Sony Music in Brazil. (See Chaos (3)).
