Established September 2004 by founders Tim Dellow and Toby L, with third partner Lilas Bourboulon joining shortly afterwards, Transgressive is an independent music group comprising a record label, publisher and management company.

Transgressive, and its spin-offs, represent a community of celebration, adventure and surprise. The only consistent theme musically is Transgressive representing a badge of quality… We endeavour to take risks and support outsiders whilst still competing on a mainstream level.

Transgressive is based in North London.
