Sound-Ink is a record label with strong musical roots but without boundaries. We reach deep into the traditions of the finest hip-hop and electronic music to find musicians that defy categorization, drawing influences from all corners of global musical culture. Based in Brooklyn, NY, Sound-Ink was founded in 2001 and since then has found creative success catalyzing new hybrid forms of urban music.
Every release on Sound-Ink is unique, reflecting our broad variety of interests, but our catalog also shares a common ethos. Sound-Ink artists work within and beyond the most vital and influential genres today, putting their own stamps on each and every track, and infecting hip-hop and electronic music with their own twists and tweaks. This vibrant cross-fertilization is at the heart of Sound-Ink, as our music takes listeners from the streets of Brooklyn and the festivals of Egypt, to the flats of East London and the clubs of South Africa. It is this unique approach that allows us to bring a fresh perspective to the scene, along with what we perceive as some of the hottest and most original music being made today.
