Cocoon Recordings is a record label founded in 2000 and operated by DJ and electronic music producer Sven Väth. Based in Frankfurt, Germany, Cocoon is a division of the Cocoon Music Event GmbH and one of the most consistent and successful electronic music labels of recent years.
Väth founded Cocoon Recordings in order to complete the Cocoon platform as a supporting tool for young artists in Electronic Music. The label philosophy is as simple as demanding: helping young producers and DJs to release their music without depending on Major Vinyl Label structures. The musical style of the releases is mainly Techno. The flagship of Cocoon Recordings' releases is the Cocoon Dj Download Compilation, which features exclusive tracks by Cocoon Artists as well as other new talents and is facing its tenth issue 'J', which was released in June 2010.
Another series is called "…in the Mix" and features the official Mix-CDs of Sven Väth. After each season in Ibiza, Väth releases his current set – something he did in 1999 for the first time ever during his twenty year long career – under the title The Sound of the First Season, which immediately entered the official German Compilation Charts at # 28. For instance, The Sound of the Fifth Season, a combined CD/DVD gives an impression behind the scenes of the CocoonClub Ibiza, one of the most successful parties on the island, and shortly, the current volume The Sound of the Tenth Season was released, celebrating 10 years of Cocoon Ibiza
