The company Eye Q Music started out as Eye Q Records in 1991 and later as they branched out into more labels they changed the name to Eye Q Musikproduktion GmbH keeping Eye Q Records as a label name only. In 1994 they changed their name to Eye Q Music to coincide with the launch of a UK office soon to be followed by a US office.
The three offices operated under the legal names Eye Q Music GmbH, Eye Q Music Ltd. and Eye Q Music Inc.
Due to financial difficulties they had to close the US office in late 1996. The financial difficulties continued and the company folded on June 9th 1997. The UK office continued to operate under the new company name Eye Q Entertainment Ltd. with new logos and a slightly different musical direction.
Company profile taken from Various - Eye Q:
Since its creation in 1991, EYE Q Music has been regarded as a synonym for sophisticated electronic music. As one of the initiators of the Techno/House movement, the company went its own way very early and established terms like "Trance" while "Techno" was still new for other labels. In contrast to banal hit material, EYE Q focuses on its acts and innovative music. With artists like SVEN VÄTH it has even been able to expand its goal to an international level. EYE Q Music maintains an office in London - and soon will open one in Los Angeles, in order to recognize important trends and tendencies in the international centres of cultural fusion and to adopt and adapt them.
EYE Q is not a traditional dance label, however, instead it sees itself as a discoverer of new, untapped worlds of music. Three years ago, this was the establishment of popular electronic development of this initial base with completely new elements. This transformation has resulted in the ambition to fuse various musical trends and has led to the formation of the three separate labels EYE Q Records, RECYCLE OR DIE, and HARTHOUSE. Each claims its own position on the scale of contemporary music.
