Some of the notable artists who have worked with Goon Trax include Steph Pockets, Incise, SoulChef, Nieve, CL Smooth, Substantial, Kero One, Othello, Emancipator, Marcus D, and more. Goon Trax has also organized several live events and tours in Japan and abroad, featuring its roster of artists and guests.
