German label with focus on jazz.
Founded in 1968 in Villingen, Germany, as a successor of SABA.

MPS stands for “Musik Produktion Schwarzwald” (Music Production Black Forest). The releases were distributed from 1971 onwards by BASF, and from 1976 onwards by Metronome Musik GmbH. In 1983, the rights were sold to Philips, which then transferred it to Polydor, whose sister company Motor Music has been re-releasing MPS recordings since 1993. In 1999, the MPS archives were handed over to Universal Jazz Germany in Hamburg. Several vinyl reissues were also released by Speakers Corner Records.

Studio: MPS-Studio, Villingen - Record Company: MPS Records GmbH

On January 7, 2014, Edel acquired MPS's back catalogue from Universal.
