Sooper is a Chicago record label owned and operated by musicians Nnamdi Ogbonnaya and Sen Morimoto. Founded in 2016 by Ogbonnaya and Glenn Curran, Sooper is a home for like-minded artists to release music on a common platform. We release original music on high-quality digital and physical formats including vinyl, cassettes, and CDs. We hope that you will browse our webstore and find something new to fall in love with.
Our experience has taught us that a fruitful artistic community is one where each inspires all, and Sooper is an attempt to create a space that incubates, energizes, and broadcasts that prerogative. As a result, Sooper is not bound by any specific genre. Our catalogue features rap, rock, pop, noise, hardcore and everything in between. We view Sooper artists as being linked by a basic attribute; namely, the creation of quality work that explores some aspect of the artistic experience in an authentic way. In this regard, we aspire to be a significant (though incomplete) reflection of the roiling sea of creativity in the Chicago music community. There is a pervasive feeling that something special is taking place in Chicago music, and if enough people believe and work at that notion in an inspired way, it must be true.
