The impressing list of the label includes artists like Aphex Twin, Derrick May, Ken Ishi, CJ Bolland, Kenny Larkin, 69 and Carl Craig. From 2001 to 2006 the label paused and opend thereafter with a re-launch in London, where they included new Talents like James Blake and Radioslave. 2008 R&S Records released a lot of re-mastered classics and remixes of classics, among other by Audion, Prins Thomas and Optimo.
