The tracks by Bytecon, Boris Divider, EMS, Freezie Freekie, Heuristic Audio, Metroneem, Silicon Scally, and Umwelt are all from records released by Satamile Records NYC. I have quite a bit of Satamile on vinyl because it was a US label and had good distribution - I could walk into a record shop in Portland and purchase their releases. Death Of A Star by Heuristic Audio is a particularly good release, and might be my favorite of the Satamile catalog. (Looking at the bandcamp release now, the tracks are mislabeled there. Which is pretty funny).
The two Sonar Base tracks are both from Transmissions From Beyond Hoag's Object (Episode II) on SCSI-AV. It's an absolutely amazing mini-album. The vinyl has gotten expensive on discogs, so I hope Sonar Base or SCSI-AV can make it available digitally sometime soon.
The first and last tracks are Silicon AKA Heath Brunner, from two different releases on Frustrated Funk. I like to imagine Sonic Team as the protagonists of a pulp sci-fi series. I might have picked some of the tracks here specifically for their titles. (The adventures of Sonic Team: dying stars, alien robots, imprisonment and escape, etc.).
Sonic Team: Be Safe.
