Over the years, Music Mania established itself as an output for vinyl records as well. Various record labels saw the light of day, each and every single one with its own purpose: from giving new life to classics to offering up and coming bands a first chance to release a very own record.
Started in 2008, Music Mania Records was the firstborn label. It focusses on Belgian bands, established as well as up and coming names, offering limited vinyl editions. From reissues of long standing Belgian icons such as Deus to Absynthe Minded, to young blood as Kapitan Korsakov & The Rhythm Junks.
Digging up old anthems from the depths of dub & roots history, our latest imprint (2018) is a collaboration between Music Mania shop owner Karel Van Audenaerde and the renown UK Indica Dubs label. With various reissues by Alpha & Omega (inc. a new volume in the legendary Dubplates Series) Disciples & Vibronics, the new imprint provides a steady flow of heavy dub tunes.

The young catalogue of Music Mania Reprise tends to focus on lost & forgotten Belgian classics. These gems are allowed a second life in order to let a broad audience enjoy it today: from a younger generation that is unfamiliar with these records to the handful of freaks who know the lyrics word for word.
After the highly sought after classic ‘Elle et Moi’ (MMR001), came the blissful Belgian synth pop anthem ‘Crocodile Tears’ (MMR002).
