The long awaited and highly anticipated album has finally arrived - our Persona 5 Jazz tribute, "METAGROOVE"! Nearly 3 years ago, we set out on a journey to not only explore the music of Persona 5, but bring out the true potential of this music. The world of Persona 5 challenges its characters to dig into the deepest parts of themselves and face their fears, and from this place comes the most powerful manifestations of their souls. This is no different from what it means to play jazz - and we took this concept to expound further on the brilliant ideas that composer Shoji Meguro laid down for us to call from today.
In addition to the all-star cast of the J-MUSIC Ensemble band, this album features a conclave of some of the world's greatest multi-genre musicians to create the best music possible: Sapphire, Mohmega, Adam Neely, Jonah Moss, Kento Iwasaki, Karlea Lynné, and Ruby Choi. Of course, no great tribute to Persona 5 would be without homage to its artwork. It's our honor to present the beautiful, provocative, and ground-breaking album artwork created by one of the greatest Persona artists in the world: blazpu! We have truly become "Persona-fied" with his rendition of us in the world of Persona, as the de facto band of the Phantom Thieves.
This entire project would not be possible in the slightest without the help of our generous backers over on Indiegogo. If you're reading this right now, we want to thank you all so much, from the bottom of our hearts, for allowing us to produce and deliver our passion to the world. Your undying love and support has kept us going through the toughest of times, and we promise from here on out, we'll continue to deliver nothing but the best music we can possibly make, and beyond. We truly hope you enjoy this album as much as we enjoyed making it!

"J-Pop meets jazz." What does that really mean? The J-MUSIC Ensemble is a jazz-rooted, instrumental band that is devoted to
bringing new perspectives to modern Japanese music. Whether you knew it or not, we all grew up hearing these sounds - now it's time to give them the respect they deserve. - #jmusicthefuture...more
Eagerly awaiting the vinyl to come! This album just has so much energy and really expands on all these tracks. Gen 4 got me back into Pokemon and its soundtrack was killer good, so if you're a Sinnoh fan like me, this album is such a good way to experience that nostalgic feeling for the music of Gen 4.

Toby Fox's combination of catchy melodies, simple yet memorable chord progresions, hauntingly beautiful atmospheric pieces, heartwrenching ballads, incredible use of leitmotif and phenomental arrangement is what makes the UNDERTALE Soundtrack one of the greatest video game soundtracks of all time. Also, OST 71 'Undertale' freakin' slaps and I wish people talked about it more Georgia Smith
I completely missed DELTARUNE Chapter 1 when it first came out, something I will always regret. What I won't regret is playing the game eventually as it led me to be able to hear one of the greatest soundtracks of all time. Once again, Toby Fox has knocked it out of the park with one of the greatest soundtracks to any video game leaving behing a trail complex memories attached to simple yet memorable leitmotifs. Also, Field of Hopes and Dreams is better than THE WORLD REVLOVING, good night Georgia Smith
