\Microids Records is delighted to unveil its catalog’s first titles and more information about the label’s ambition. As a reminder, Microids Records is the video game publisher Microids’ new music label. Its goal is to publish Microids games’ original music scores and work on various collaborations with artists and composers from different music styles and backgrounds.
The label’s releases will ship through regular digital and physical “drops” over the year. Each digital drop will include multiple albums from Microids games and other projects. In addition to the original soundtracks from Microids’ games (past, present and future), Microids Records will offer alternative and limited albums as well as original creations. The entire content will be available on main music streaming services.
The physical drops will offer limited edition vinyls, through collaborations with international partners.
Microids Records wishes to position itself as a label putting artists and composers at the center of its ecosystem. Every score or album will be treated as a full-blown art piece rather than a marketing or communication tool. This is why the label will support each digital and limited edition with utmost care and attention.\
