Distinct'ive Records (also known as Distinct'ive Breaks and Distinct've Records) is a UK based record label founded in 1995.[1] The label has hundreds of releases from artists, most notably Hybrid, Way Out West, and iLS.


Distinct'ive Records was initially founded in 1995 and started out as a sublabel of Avex Recordings (UK). In 1998, Avex reorganized, closed two of its labels and only continued trading music recordings as Distinct'ive Records.[2] In 1999, The company began categorizing its genres within the label, sometimes retitling itself "Distinct'ive Breaks", which was often mistaken to be a sublabel of Distinct'ive.

The label gained popularity in 2000 at the launch of its own "Y3K" series.
