301Studios was an American independent electronic music and hip-hop record label based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, from 2003 until 2012. It was founded by J. Lexvold. According to the label, 301Studios had taken a business model cue from successful independent labels such as Amphetamine Reptile, Ipecac Records, and Wax Trax! by focusing on artist development rather than searching out ready-made or Top 40 style radio-friendly artists.[1]
