Profile:
Label Code: LC 2114

De-Lite Records was founded in 1967, by Fred Vigorito, Fred Fioto and Ted Simonetti. It became prominent in Disco, Soul and R&B music.

One of their first signings was Kool & The Gang whose self-titled instrumental was their first big hit. Subsequently, Kool & The Gang became the most successful act for the De-Lite label, scoring many hit singles and albums.

In the 1970s, Pickwick International took over distribution of the label and by 1975, disco pioneers, Crown Heights Affair had signed to De-Lite, releasing a string of hits. After PolyGram later purchased Pickwick in 1977, Polygram took over distribution of De-Lite which was maintained as an imprint for Kool & The Gang.

In 1985, De-Lite was absorbed into PolyGram sub-label, Mercury Records. By 1998, Polygram merged with Universal Music Group and their subsidiary, Island Def Jam Music Group, took over management of the De-Lite catalogue.
