After Air II, FAX increased the limitation to 1000 copies worldwide. By this point, FAX had also switched over from the predominantly 12" vinyl format to full length compact discs. Unless otherwise noted, all items in this particular discography were on CD.
During this time, the main PK label saw a significant decrease in output while the two sublabels evolved further. There is the "triangle" label or just plain "sublabel" which has a triangle over a circle (in the upper right as usual). The vinyl records on this label have the text and the circle in white while the label is always black. For the CDs, the trimmings are gold and the background usually has some pretty impressive looking artwork that varies quite a bit.
This sublabel is indicated by a catalog code of PS. Pete Namlook has nothing to do with this label musically but provides it instead as a support label for independent and underground artists. The styles vary quite a bit. In the early days it focused more on hard trance and acid but lately it has been mostly ambient and soft trance from environmental and ethnic to intelligent. A number in the triangle does not indicate a project but which release it is for that artist. For example, Gorn with a number 2 in the triangle means that this is the second record Gorn has put out on this sublabel. On the 34 week of 1993, the PS/triangle label released its own version of Compilation 1 not to be confused with FAX's own main label Compilation 1.
The "world" sublabel replaces the usual circle with a picture of the earth from space and the catalog code is PW. This label is set up for collaborations with artists around the world who are outside of Germany. The only records released on this sublabel have been Dreamfish and Glitch which were later released on their respective full length CDs.
A good way to keep track of the codes is PK=Peter Kuhlmann, his main label. PS=Peter's sublabel and PW=Peter's World label. Compilations have all come on CD and in 1000 copies worldwide. See the "fax from FAX" section. Collector's box sets are rare and expensive. I saw collector's box 3 in 1993 which had all 16 records that made up series 3. I almost bought it but it cost over $150 which I didn't have at the time. Many of the earlier releases have been licensed to other labels such as Rising High (UK), Music Man (Belgium) and R & S (Belgium). This did not work out so well and so Peter started a new label for unlimited distribution called "Ambient World."
