Brainlove Records is an independent record label with a DIY ethic, based in London, England. The label works with artists making experimental indie, pop and electronic music, and those who blur the boundaries between genres.

Brainlove has long been a favourite amongst fans of independent music, and continues to receive positive press for its activity from increasingly mainstream media sources such as NME ("relentlessly brilliant"[1]), BBC Radio 1[2] and BBC 6 Music.[3]

Brainlove also runs live shows, including showcases at SPOT Festival in Denmark and Iceland Airwaves[4] in Reykjavik, club nights with White Heat, Club NME at Koko (venue) and La Route Du Rock, and a two-day label music festival, held annually at the Brixton Windmill.

The label published an article on its early history on The Quietus in August 2010.[5]
