Black Screen Records is a German record label based in Cologne that focuses on high quality vinyl releases of video game soundtracks. Since the launch of Black Screen Records in early 2015 our small team - consisting of passionate gamers, vinyl collectors and music industry professionals - has released the soundtracks to the critically acclaimed indie games Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, Velocity 2X, Downwell, Risk of Rain, Pony Island and Dear Esther on vinyl.
Over the last years game scores were becoming increasingly sophisticated but even 8 bit soundtracks from the 80s like the Super Mario Bros. and the Tetris Theme had such an impact that these melodies are still remembered today - even from people who haven't played these classics. Black Screen Records was founded to capture some of these incredible music pieces and bring them to you in the best sounding format there is: vinyl.
We're cooperating with the leading independent music distributors in the US, UK, EU and Germany and are working closely with the best pressing plant and printers in Germany. Furthermore we haven an in-house PR team that will take care or promotion and marketing for our releases. We always go in for quality and try to develop an individual packaging for each release - we just don’t want to release music on vinyl, we want to sell a product for fans, collectors and music lovers who enjoy their favourite game soundtracks as much as we do. We produce, distribute and sell high quality collector's editions on audiophile and heavy-weight 180 gram vinyl records that come in a beautiful packaging with special inserts and vinyl-only bonuses worldwide.
