Volition Records was an Sydney, Australia based record label specialising in electronic music styles such as house, techno, synthpop and trance. It was founded by Andrew Penhallow in the late 1980s, but folded in the late 1990s.

Amongst the roster of Volition artists were Severed Heads, Boxcar, Itch-E and Scratch-E, Single Gun Theory, Southend, Vision Four 5 and Robert Racic. Racic, in particular, as a record producer and co-collaborator with many of the artists on the label was integral to much of Volition's output during most of the label's existence and was, to some extent, it's unofficial "house producer". Volition also signed a few indie pop bands such as the Falling Joys and Swordfish.
