ZYX Music

ZYX Music is a German record label which was founded in 1971 by Bernhard Mikulski.[1] It is one of the most successful German record labels of the 1980s and 1990s. Until 1992, the label's name was Pop-Import Bernhard Mikulski. The label specialized in disco and early house music. Founder Bernhard Mikulski is credited with coining the term Italo disco in the 1980s.[2][3] Since the death of Bernhard, his wife Christa Mikulski took over in 1997.

ZYX Music is headquartered in Merenberg, Germany and has offices in the USA and several European countries.[1] ZYX releases records in a number of different genres, including electronica, hip hop, funk, rock and pop. Noteworthy is that ZYX nowadays holds many rights from some German Krautrock labels like Ohr, Pilz, and Kosmische Kuriere, and is also responsible for reissuing many albums from the free jazz/avant garde label ESP-Disk. Formerly, it held the manufacturing license for Fantasy Records in Europe, an arrangement which ceased at the end of 2005.

Under the imprint Zyx Classic, ZYX has also reissued on CD some important recordings of classical music, including a Beethoven edition.
