Ninthwave Records is a U.S. synthpop record label founded in 2001.


Ninthwave Records is an independent record company specializing in electronic pop. It was founded in 2001 as part of Lexicon Magazine but was made a separate company upon the magazine's demise. The label has released albums by Heaven 17, White Town, The Electroluvs, Ganymede, Empire State Human [1] NASA, Spray, POP INC, Space March and other bands like Alan Replica.

Together with A Different Drum, the label has been one of the few US record labels to release modern synthpop, a genre often overlooked by even small indie labels.

The first albums released under the name “Ninthwave Records” were CD samplers given away with Lexicon magazine. There is debate as to the first proper commercially released album by the label. According to its own catalog NASA’s Remembering the Future (Nw1004-2) is first, but Ganymede’s After the Fall (NW1007-2) came out first due to production delays with the NASA album. Anthems for the Young At Heart by Gary Flanagan is a “limited edition” CDR.

In September 2005 the label released Before/After by the UK band Heaven 17. Response to the album has been muted but in May 2006 a single, “Hands up to Heaven” reached #6 on the Billboard Magazine Club Play Chart in the US.

Songs from Spray (band) (“I Am Gothic”) and Melody & Mezzo (“Nightshade”) have appeared on Dance Dance Revolution video games.

Ric Autobahn, of the band Spray, has appeared as either a member of or producer of several UK bands, namely The Cuban Boys, Rikki and Daz, Lolly Pop and Daz Sampson.
