Transgressive Records is an independent record label based in London, England, formed in 2004. Its founders, Tim Dellow and Toby L, first met at a Bloc Party gig organised by Toby's Rockfeedback website.[1] The first release on the label was "1am" by The Subways, released in September 2004. The company has since formed Transgressive Management (looking after Johnny Flynn and Jodie Marie) and Transgressive Publishing whose roster includes Noisettes, Mystery Jets and Two Door Cinema Club. Transgressive Records has signed in excess of thirty acts and has released over 100 different records.

In September 2009, to celebrate the label's fifth anniversary birthday, Transgressive staged three large concerts in London - two at Heaven with headline sets from Young Knives and Foals, and one at Union Chapel, co-headlined by Johnny Flynn and the label's newest signing at the time, Graham Coxon. In 2011, it launched two imprints ParadYse Records a singles imprint, launching Theme Park, Cold Specks, Marika Hackman, Thumpers and Blaenavon; and Kissability a cassette imprint run by Jen Long from BBC Radio 1, who released Splashh, Fever Fever and Deaf Club among others.

In 2013, Transgressive released full-length albums by Foals, Theme Park, Flume and At The Drive-In in the first half of the year.
