It was set up as a tongue-in-cheek response to the 'Acid House' explosion. The label, armed only with a music policy that stated 'no House music!', rapidly began producing records that, although they often contained very little 'Jazz' and even less 'Acid', became the ultimate symbol of 1990sAcid Jazz is a record label based in east London. It takes its name from acid jazz, a genre of jazz music. Alternative version states that the genre itself was named after the record label. Radio and club DJ Gilles Peterson is credited with coining the phrase Acid Jazz in the late 1980s. Distributed by Shellshock And Vital Records. Former Address: Acid Jazz Records PO Box 24854 London E1 6FJ.
