Chess Club Records has been home to some of the UK's most exciting and notable artists for over 17 years.

Before Chess Club Records was established, the Chess Club name existed as a monthly club night in London that showcased the best musical talent from around the UK and beyond. The night was responsible for hosting debut or early shows for Bon Iver, MGMT, Lykke Li, The Vaccines, Michael Kiwanuka, Noah & The Whale, Yeasayer, Laura Marling, Mumford & Sons, The XX, Florence & The Machine amongst many others. Chess Club quickly built a reputation as an incubator for undiscovered talent, and building on the culture and brand that the monthly night had built, Chess Club Records was born. Since it’s conception the label has been responsible for unearthing, developing and releasing material from an array of artists, across a broad spectrum of genres.
