Xpressway was a record label founded by New Zealand musician Bruce Russell in Dunedin in 1988. Until it ceased in 1993, Xpressway released a variety of New Zealand musicians, primarily on cassette, but its catalogue included several 7" singles and one 12" EP.

Russell began releasing and distributing cassettes via mail order, to offer a 'lifeboat' for those artists who had been dropped by Flying Nun Records, as Flying Nun moved away from its low-fi roots to focus on artists with more 'commercial potential'.[1]

Artists whose material was released by Xpressway include The Dead C, This Kind Of Punishment, Wreck Small Speakers On Expensive Stereos, Alastair Galbraith, Graeme Jefferies, The Terminals, and Sandra Bell.
