Off Limits Music & Publishing was founded as a dance music production company at the beginning of the 90’s, established by Alfredo "Larry" Pignagnoli.
In the 80’s, Larry had produced "Easy Lady", "Call Me", "Every Girl and Boy". These tracks made Ivana Spagna (then simply known as "Spagna") famous all over the world.
"Saturday night" was the first song produced by Larry for Off Limits: this song went to the highest positions in world sales charts and allowed Whigfield to enter in the Guinness Book of World Records, as she was the first non-English artist to go straight to number one in the UK singles chart.
Success has continued ever since

Larry was also the producer of “Satisfaction" by Benny Benassi, “2 Times” (Ann Lee), “Tu es foutu” by In-Grid as well as Benassi Bros’ tracks “Illusion” and “Hit my heart”.

In 2004 Off Limits became an indipendent label. The first acts signed were Favretto, Edun, Channing, Pochill, D-Bag and Mobbing
In 2008 Off Limits  produced  Alle and Benny Benassi’s  Grammy Award winning remix of "Bring the noise" by Public Enemy.

The recently created new labels span over the varied and multifaceded production flow: Off Limits (dance), Q-Lab (club), Flat frog (electro-funk), Minimoff (minimal), J-Digital (jazz), Labelle (international pop) and Mito (italian pop).
