Much focus has been made recently on the silicon roundabout around Old Street EC2, in terms of the cluster of technology companies in that area, but perhaps one of the most concentrated industries in London are the major record labels. Following Universal Music Groups relocation of all subsidiary labels such as Polygram and Decca Records this. year, all the major record labels are now in Kensington, westof the West End.

Since 2008, following mergers and acquisitions, the six major record labels of the 1980s and 1990s have been reduced to four major labels.

All of these 4 majors are now just off Kensington High Street within no more than a mile of each other.
