Modular Records is an Australian record label. It was established by Sydney-based music promoter Steve Pavlovic as a joint-venture with EMI, but is now distributed (and half-owned) by Universal Music in Australia. Modular has released recordings by local artists such as Eskimo Joe, Ben Lee, The Avalanches, Muscles, Wolfmother, Cut Copy, The Bumblebeez, Van She, Rocket Science, Ghostwood and The Presets, as well as local releases of international artists including Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Chromeo, Colder, Klaxons (The EP Xan Valleys), New Young Pony Club, MSTRKRFT, and The Softlightes.
Founded in 1998 by Sydney concert promoter Steve Pavlovic. The label came to most people’s attention on 2001, when they released Australian sample-based electronica act The Avalanches' debut album Since I Left You. In 2004, with the emergence of new acts Cut Copy, The Presets and The Bumblebeez and the development of regular Modular parties and tours the label began to grow and Modular came to prominence in the Australian scene. In 2004 an office was established in New York, followed by a London office in 2005. Van She, a new wave electropop four piece from Sydney were signed in August 2005. Mid 2006 modular signed London’s New Young Pony Club. An office in Los Angeles followed in 2007, along with the signing of new acts including Muscles, Ghostwood, Buraka Som Sistema, Plug-In City and The Whitest Boy Alive.
