Soundway Records is a British-based independent record label founded and run by English DJ and collector Miles Cleret. It started in 2002 with the release of a compilation of Ghanaian music from the 1970s : ''Ghana Sounds: Afrobeat, Funk & Fusion in '70s Ghana''.

Since then the label has released a series of critically acclaimed compilation albums and re-issues of African, Caribbean, Latin and Asian music from the 1950s - 1980s. These include the best-selling compilation "Doing It In Lagos" (2016) and others such as Nigeria Special, Ghana Special & Kenya Special compilation albums that Cleret spent years bringing together.

With these compilations alongside a string of highly sought-after rare reissue albums, the label has also began in 2012 to develop a series of original contemporary releases. These include releases from acts such as Batida, Ibibio Sound Machine, Fumaca Preta, Ondatropica, Meridian Brothers, Bomba Estereo, Dexter Story, The Heliocentrics, The Mauskovic Dance Band and Lord Echo.

In 2014, Soundway was named by The Guardian as "One of the 10 British Labels defining the Sound of 2014", and in 2017 was named "Label Of The Year" at the Worldwide Awards in London founded and hosted by Gilles Peterson.
