FFRR Records is a dance music label run by English DJ Pete Tong. Originally distributed by London Records, FFRR is currently a dance music sublabel of Parlophone, a division of Warner Music Group. The label name references the recording technique (full frequency range recording) developed by Decca Records.

The original incarnation of FFRR was founded in 1986, and also had two subsidiaries: Double F Double R Records and Ffrreedom Records. The label's ear logo was copied from the original FFRR logo source. The label name was stylized as ffrr, rather than FFRR.

In 2011, Pete Tong and Warner revived FFRR, and put the label under the Parlophone umbrella when the latter acquired that label in 2013.
