Restless was started in the late 1980s as a part of Enigma, which ended up absorbing its parent label after it was briefly spun-off. In the early 1990s, it also absorbed Twin/Tone. Part of Restless' success was due to its great distribution deals, which it would sign with smaller labels like Bar/None, and then get those discs distributed by BMG among other major labels. In 2001, it was bought by Rykodisc.
