Hypnotic Records is an American independent record label specializing in electronic music

History[edit]

Hypnotic Records[1] is the sub-label to Cleopatra Records [2] owned by Brian Perera. Specializing in electronic dance music. As electronic music mutated, the company worked like a railroad crew, staying a few steps ahead, laying the tracks for the genre to ride onward. Top dance acts like Future Sound Of London and Loop Guru would send the Hypnotic Records offshoot into the stratosphere. The early Rave culture expanded to define a large segment of a chemical generation and Hypnotic was there to chronicle its stars like Crystal Method and its misunderstood adherents on the award winning documentary DVD: Better Living Through Circuitry. Later the label would also release groundbreaking works from the DJs ; Paul Oakenfold and Superstar DJ Keoki as well as seeking new talent like the Electric Heaven and Blackburner
