Blow Up Records is a London based independent established in 1994 by Blow Up Club club founder Paul Tunkin.

Music on the label ranges from 60s to New Wave, from Pop to Electronica and it is still run by the same team that brings you the legendary Blow Up Club night (1993 to present), and who promoted The Metro Club on Oxford Street in London until its closure for CrossRail in 2009. The Blow Up label is responsible for compilations such as the ground-breaking “Exclusive Blend” music library series, ‘Blow Up A-Go-Go: Dancefloor Classics’ and several series of limited seven inches featuring bands from across Europe and the UK. Blow Up released the first Add N To X album as well as albums for recent acts such as Big Boss Man, The Bongolian, Baltic Fleet, Silvery, Mockingbird, Wish Me Luck, Neon Plastix, Alfa 9, Daiquiri Fantomas, David Woodcock and more reflecting the label’s continuing eclectic output.

2013: 2013 saw Baltic Fleet win this year’s Liverpool GIT Award, be nominated for Liverpool Music Awards Album of The Year (along side Miles Kane and Ian Skelly) and perform at Yoko Ono’s Meltdown.

2013 also saw two debut releases for new signings Daiquiri Fantomas and David Woodcock.
