Thump Records is a record label specialized in various genres of music. Founded by Bill Walker and Al Lopez for $10,000. In 1997 Bill Walker became its sole C.E.O. and President.


Thump's success was ignited by the popularity of its Old School and Low Rider compilation series (co-branded with Low Rider Magazine[1]). Thump's Distributor is major label Universal,[2] and Thump has also signed many artists under its own banner. Tierra gained hit The Intruders' 1967 song "Together", written by Gamble & Huff, which reached #18 on the Billboard Hot 100[3][4][5] from Boardwalk Records, and later Tierra joined Thump Records.
