This topic has been discussed in various threads over the years, but it might be good to have everything in one place.
Former Sega sound designer Kazuhiko Nagai (長井和彦) started putting up his work on Youtube last year. Let's start with him. Here is the list of his consumer work from his website (up through 1993):
1986〜 MarkⅢ FM unit /master system :sound driver
1986 Space Harrier : help&coding,SE
1987 Zillon : Direction,SE
1987 ALIEN SYNDROME : Direction,driver,compose,SE(sound all)

He doesn't specify a platform for Altered Beast, but he apparently confirmed years ago that he worked on the Master System version, in addition to the Mega Drive/Genesis version.

Hikoshi Hashimoto (橋本彦士)

T's Music (株式会社ティーズミュージック)
Game audio production company started in April 1990
Sega 8-bit games NOT listed on their website:
- Submarine Attack (Master System)
In an interview, then-president Tomoyuki Hamada said this was their first game, but it was not released. Except it was released, just not in Japan, which might be why it's not on the website.
- Berlin no Kabe (The Berlin Wall) (Game Gear)
Sega 8-bit games listed on their website:
- Bart World (The Simpsons: Bart vs. the World, outside of Japan)
I believe there are mistakes on the T's Music website. However, this is one of the few Acclaim Simpsons games released in Japan, and we know from a former Santos programmer that that company converted Bart vs. the World and Space Mutants to Game Gear from the Master System.
Did T's Music also work on Space Mutants? That one did not come out in Japan, which could be why it's not listed on the website.

Ninja Gaiden (Master System)

Posts he wrote about working at SIMS. Had some things to say about future company president Noboru Machida:
