Profile: Hypnos is an ambient label based out of Portland, Oregon, USA, founded in 1996 by Mike Griffin. Artists who have released albums on Hypnos include Vidna Obmana, Jeff Pearce, Jeff Greinke, A Produce, and Robert Rich.

In 2001 the Binary sub-label was created to feature more dynamic electronic music, closer to techno and Berlin School ambient.

Also in 2001, Hypnos began a partnership to distribute releases from The Foundry, an ambient and experimental label from Berkeley, California. All releases under this partnership have the Foundry/Hypnos logo on them, but maintain the Foundry catalog numbers. The first combined release was fou.11. The partnership was since dissolved.

Distributed in the USA by Soleilmoon Recordings.

Sublabels: Hypnos Secret Sounds, Hypnos/Binary
