Rob's Records was a Manchester record label founded by Rob Gretton, former manager of Joy Division and New Order, and a co-director of Factory Records. Their first release in 1989 was the single "Security" by the Miami-based band The Beat Club, with a remix by Bernard Sumner of New Order. The label went on to release a series of much admired dance records by local talent such as Sub Sub, Mr Scruff, A Certain Ratio and Digital Justice, as well international acts including The Beat Club and Roy Davis Jnr. In 1993 Ain't No Love (Ain't No Use) by Sub Sub hit #3 on the UK national singles chart, providing the label with its biggest commercial success. However, the label ceased operations shortly after Gretton's untimely death on 15 May 1999.
