I couldn't find anything on D. Light, but here's a little something about the ZYX label - from

It was Bernhard Mikulski, the late founder of ZYX Records, Germany, who coined the ubiquitous term "Italo Disco" in 1984. The name caught on with the fans (many fans shortened to just Italo) and it was destined to describe perhaps the most misunderstood and under-appreciated genre of electronic dance music. The "Italo Disco" logos, decorated in the colors of Italian flag, were printed on sleeves of every promo sampler and mixed LP released and marketed by ZYX. In only four years (1984-1988) ZYX released 13 volumes of 2LP sets "The Best Of Italo Disco", and 10 volumes of "Italo Boot Mixes".
