Novamute Records is the electronic dance music subsidiary of Mute Records, which was started in 1992.[1] The label's staff included Mick Paterson (promotions), Pepe Jansz (A&R), and producer Seth Hodder, and it was originally set up to give UK releases to white label 12-inch singles and imports.[1] In the United States it was distributed by Tommy Boy Records while the Mute parent label was distributed by Elektra Records.[1]

In the beginning, the label licensed records and music from small labels such as Berlin-based Tresor and Canadian label Plus 8.[1] It expanded its remit to include new work from artists such as Richie Hawtin and Luke Slater.[2][3]

Novamute win the Best Label award at the Music und Maschine Awards in Germany in July 2002.[4]

In 2017, Daniel Miller relaunched [5] the label with releases from Nicolas Bougaïeff [6] and Terence Fixmer [7].
