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: "helping young producers and DJs to release their music without depending on Major Label structures"[citation needed]. The musical style of the releases is mainly Techno. The flagship of Cocoon Recordings' releases is the Cocoon 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 entered the official German Compilation Charts at # 28. The Sound of the Fifth Season, a combined CD/DVD, gives an impression behind the scenes of the CocoonClub Ibiza, and the volume The Sound of the Tenth Season was released to celebrate 10 years of Cocoon Ibiza.
