Nu Groove Records was an indie dance label founded by Karen and Frank Mendez along with R&B/Dance producers Rheji Burrell and his brother. It existed from 1988 to 1992.

The legacy label Nu Groove Records was re launched after an almost 10 year hiatus. Original founder David Chackler revitalized the legendary label, reacquiring the rights to the NuGroove name from his prior partners who had acquired the company in 2004. Originally the home for smooth jazz icon Michael Lington and format bending Down to the Bone, Nu Groove launched some of the biggest acts in the format, and since its revival has been credited with taking the lead in revitalizing the contemporary jazz industry. Jay Soto's Stay Awhile album was the first release of 2007 and resulted in a Top 10 Hit. Michael Lington re-signed to the label in 2008, some 10 years after his debut album. Nu Groove are distributed through Red\Sony Distribution.
