Formed by Andy Maddocks in 1990, the Manchester, England-based Skam Records is home to some of Electronic Music's most beloved musicians; including Bola, Gescom, Jega and Freeform. Skam is known for their secretiveness and their limited 12" releases.

Skam was Boards of Canada's first record label, releasing two of Boards of Canada's early EPs: the Hi Scores 12" (SKA008) and the Aquarius 7" (KMAS001). In a collaboration with Warp Records, Skam released Boards of Canada's first full length album Music has the Right to Children (WARP LP 55/SKALP001). It is worth noting that this was also Skam's first full length release as well.

They also released, in conjunction with German label Musik aus Strom, the limited-run MASK vinyl series, which contain a handful of additional Boards of Canada/Hell Interface tracks.
