DMP Digital Music Products was one of the first fully digital recording labels, generally specializing in jazz artists. Founded by engineer and digital recording pioneer Tom Jung after leaving Sound 80 recording studios in Minneapolis, its first releases in 1983 featured pianist Warren Bernhardt, Jay Leonhart, and the group Flim & the BB's - which were the first non-classical recordings released on Compact Disc. Recordings on the DMP label are noted for their high level of sonic excellence. DMP was one of the few labels to release commercial DAT recordings, has been at the forefront of introducing numerous digital recording technologies, and has been a pioneer in the SACD digital audio format.

Notable artists who have recorded for the DMP label include Warren Bernhardt, Jay Leonhart, Flim & the BB's, Lynne Arriale, Joe Beck, Ali Ryerson, Chuck Loeb, Joe Morello and many others.
