Adaadat is a polyamorous London-based not-for-profit record label focused on developing brownfield music which retains a dissonant and superannuated aesthetic. Founded in 2002 by Angus Keith and Bjørn Hatleskog, it is best known for releasing a wide range of Experimental Electronic, Breakcore, Chiptune and Noise music. Adaadat was named 'Label of the Month' by John Peel shortly before his death in April 2004. Adaadat is distributed worldwide by Cargo Records.
