The meaning of «ffrr records»

FFRR Records (sometimes credited as Full Frequency Range Recordings) is a dance music label previously run and founded by English DJ Pete Tong.[2] Originally the dance music label of London Records, FFRR is currently a sublabel of Parlophone, a division of Warner Music Group. The label name references the recording technique (full frequency range recording) developed by Sir Edward Lewis's Decca Records.[3]

The original incarnation of FFRR was founded in 1986, and also had two subsidiaries: Double F Double R Records and Ffrreedom Records.[2] The label's ear logo was copied from the original FFRR logo source, as found at the top of the London Records logo. The label name was stylized as ffrr, rather than FFRR.

FFRR's parent company London was run by Roger Ames[4][5][6][7] as his own 'semi-autonomous indie' from within the major label group PolyGram, so when Ames joined Warner Music as Chair and CEO, London/FRRR went with him. In 2011, Pete Tong and Warner revived FFRR, and put the label under the Parlophone umbrella when the latter acquired that label in 2013. In 2017, Warner Music sold London Recordings post-1979 catalogue and with it FFRR's 1986 catalogue to Because Music.

In 2019, the label was taken over by Andy Daniell, formally of Defected Records and got a relaunch in 2021 with a new updated logo created in association with designer Trevor Jackson.[8][9][10][11][12] The first releases under this new brand identity will be DJ Morgan Geist's Storm Queen project with "For A Fool" and the "Loving Touch EP" from Burns.
