Koopa Soundworks is a place for good music. We’re a music label dedicated to exploring the interplay between videogames, music and nostalgia.

We’re here to scratch an itch: make good music. Mainly videogames-inspired music, as seen in our 1st album World 1-2, which hosted a wide array of composers — from Manami Matsumae (Mega Man) and Keiji Yamagishi (Ninja Gaiden) to Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill) and Austin Wintory (Journey) and many more. We’re working on additional albums and the current plan is to have 3 compilation releases by this year’s end.

The future is exciting as we work with more musicians and make good art. It’s exhilarating and we hope to direct that back to you.
