Manimal was created in 2006 by former fashion stylist, Paul Beahan. Since it's inception, the label has served a ferociously creative roster, boasting debut releases from Bat for Lashes, Warpaint, Sister Crayon, Jenny O. and exclusive releases from seasoned art-pop legends Moby, Yoko Ono, Duran Duran and way too many more to name.

The label has since branched into a full-service music company providing distribution and marketing to like-minded labels across the globe along with publicity and sync/license divisions.

As of 2016, with A&R head of operations Aaron Dorsey, Beahan and the label team are on a continuous search for new artists to partner with on an international level.
