Beatnik Records was an independent record label formed by Carl Emery in 1998. Based in Chorlton, Manchester, the label specialized in limited runs of 12" singles aimed at the underground electronic music scene. Among its releases include those by Antidote, Autio and Atomic Clock. Antidote became Kids Indestructible and later recorded for Parisian record label Gooom Disques. Members of Autio and Atomic Clock would later find success as part of The Earlies. As its strapline, the label used the phrase "Music For Abstract Pioneers".
