Info:The label End Of Earth Records of DJ TreyQel is founded in 2007. The DJ used to be a member of the crew Future Shock.

Non-Profit
On November 16th, 2007 the label announced it is a non-profit organization. This means that after the artist gets paid the profit will go to a group of various non-profit organizations. The first organizations that End of Earth supports are: www.notforsalecampaign.org, www.dalitnetwork.org and www.rzim.org.

Subdivisions
In 2008 two subdivisions are created:
- AudioSketchBook: run by TreyQel and Capture the Elusive
- Soundmind: run by Nickels
The subdivisions are commercial labels, but a portion of their profit goes to End of Earth, which in return supports the before mentioned charity organizations.

The first artist that was signed to End Of Earth Records is the rapper Mellow Drum Addict.

Logo
On June 12th, 2007 the new logo is premiered by Microphone Astronaut on his MySpace blog. The logo looks like a globe surrounded by a set of surreal wings. As the designer says: "Since the acronym or initials EOE (End Of Earth) are a palindrome it was easier to play around with the configuration. This particular design takes advantage of that by reversing the first "E" while using the globe as the "O"."
