Axiom was a record label founded by musician Bill Laswell in 1989, with the support of Chris Blackwell. Axiom was an independent subdivision of Blackwell's Island Records. In 1998, Island Records became a subsidiary of the Universal Music Group, Blackwell was fired, and Axiom was closed. Laswell continues to work with Blackwell's new label, Palm Pictures.

Axiom released Sonny Sharrock's Ask the Ages and Henry Threadgill's Too Much Sugar for a Dime, as well as records by Laswell projects such as Praxis and Material.
