1989 (2LP+DL CODE)
2x12" 10.09.21
repress 2021 - für den dänischen produzenten und performer rune reilly kÖlsch hat sich kompakt als ideale musikalische heimat bewährt: mit zwei hochgelobten alben und einer inzwischen als klassisch geltenden serie an solo-eps unter dem speicher-banner hat er sein technohandwerk auf die nächste stufe gebracht, mit kurs auf melodie, emotion und sogar autobiographische elemente – ohne an druck oder charakter zu verlieren. mit dem neuen langspieler 1989 präsentiert kölsch das finale kapitel einer eleganten, an höhepunkten reichen albumtrilogie, die mit der erkundung früher kindheitserinnerungen und einflüsse auf “1977” (kom 276 cd 107) – dem jahr seiner geburt – begann, und auf “1983” (kom 329 cd 122) fortgeführt wurde, einer lebhaften und pittoresken reise durch das frühachtziger europa, das er als sechsjähriger erlebte.

GUTE LUFT (2LP+DL) (RE-RELEASE)
2x12"+dl 21.12.20
re-release! 2x12 inch + dl , gute luft is the result of months of work scoring the hit german tv film 24h berlin - the longest documentary film in history which featured 80 camera teams following the lives of berliners over a 24 hour period. obviously a huge challenge for fehlmann, beyond the scope of the project and hours of music involved in a 24 hour film, there was dealing with the decision making process that went with working with such a large production team. as he shared scoring duties with another musician (separately), inevitably a lot of his music ended up not making the final cut. gute luft is about re-tweaking and editing material from the countless hours of recording he had created. in a sense, gute luft is fehlmanns ideal soundtrack to the 24h berlin documentary.

re-release! like no other project originating from that stylistic jungle that became known as the nineties, terranova has shown a strong focus besides genre definitions, with studio members fetisch and &me being true wanderers between worlds and times, holding 2012s dance floor in a tight choke. theres certainly a bassdrum beating in their chests, and even the elegic strings from question mark, that beautifully sung intro to terranovas latest album hotel amour, can barely hide a core made out of pure sweat and beats. remixes are from kink and adam port

PENTAGRAM (2LP+DL)
2x12" 15.06.18
es ist zehn jahre her seit der veröffentlichung von gui borattos bahnbrechendem debütalbum „chromophobia“. so wie der titel vermuten ließ, war das album mit seinen kontrastreichen minimalgrooves und den üppig gefärbten melodien ein schocker im besten sinne. ihr erinnert euch sicher noch an die hit-single „beautiful life“, eine dancefloor-hymne aus dieser zeit. nach vier alben und unzähligen eps und remixen ist das einmalige savoir-faire des brasilianischen produzenten, aus vielfältigen singles und features stimmige alben zu schaffen, auch auf seinem fünften studioalbum „pentagram“ zu hören. hier legt gui boratto ein zwölf-track-narrativ vor, das seine handschrift auf erquickende weise wiederbelebt. wiederbelebt wird auch die stimme von „beautiful life“ (die der frau gui borattos gehört) auf dem stück „overload“.

MIXTAPE VOL. 1 (LP + MP3)
12" UK 13.04.18
to those familiar with the output of cologne-based imprint firm from back in the early ‘00s, the name of geiger, alias nass, shall undoubtedly ring a bell. herald of an hedonistic melange of funk-soaked electro pop and guitar-riddled synth music, sitting somewhere close to acts like ween and junior boys, alexander geiger is about to break a eight-year hiatus with the drop of his debut album under the newly-founded moniker of fahrland. a release that both encompasses a healthy dose of the discoid tropes from the firm era but also aspires to split with a segment of it, geared towards exploring further undisclosed fringes of his shape-shifting sound universe, ‘mixtape vol.1’ is the fruit of a decisive move from the sleepless berlin to the peaceful countryside landscapes of fahrland – a lushly forested area near potsdam which you’ll have understood played an essential role in geiger’s longed-for return. the vinyl lp includes a download code.

DEAD START PROGRAM (2LP+MP3)
2x12"+mp3 09.02.18
following up to three albums on kompakt since 2011, the latest being signs under test (kom321/komcd119) in 2015, los angeles based house and techno producer john tejada returns to the cologne-based imprint with his thirteenth full-length, dead start program - an eleven-track journey spanning a prismatic array of styles and patterns, from john s signature soulful techno tunes to the further mazy, hypnotic motifs of his trancey electro hybrids. be it solo or through a host of multifaceted collaborations, tejada keeps himself busy on all fronts in and off the club environment, be it by contributing the 44th number in fabric s seminal mix series, playing drums for detroit legend daniel bell (as dbx), testing the limits of acid with tin man or joining forces with the hilarious self-proclaimed disinformationist reggie watts as wajatta. since his beginnings and the drop of his debut 12inch, waxing , released through his own label palette recordings over twenty years ago, john has been carving out a lane of his own combining and assembling elements from all ends of his wide-spanning spectrum of reference in a way that allows a more direct transition from the realm of the mind to the circuits of the machine, as confirmed by the deliberately limited studio setup used in the making of the present album. navigating across the lines, from the arrhythmic machine spook of the album s opener autoseek via the straight out thumping and jacking pulse of hypochondriac and heavy-lidded breakbeat of sleep spindle onto the kosmische-infused vibrations of telemetry, vibrant slo-mo inertia of loss and wistful club-ready winds of duty cycle and heal, john threads his way through genres and tempos with optimal chameleonic effect. cloaked in a beautiful sleeve art courtesy of johns long time friend juan mendez aka silent servant another key contributor to the los angeles scene worldwide

II REMIXES
12" 27.10.17
following their much acclaimed surprise debut, vermonts sophomore longplayer presented another set that rewards deep listening (allmusic) and a mix of simplicity and richness whose result is a feeling of spaciousness and a thrilling sense of weightlessness (xlr8r). stripping away even more percussion than on its predecessor, ii saw marcus worgull and danilo plessow zooming in on ambience, texture and sonic cohesiveness, allowing each electronic voice to come into focus (pitchfork). now, ii remixes puts the beat back into the mix, thanks to iconic artists dixon, i:cube and wassermann who each develop their own irresistible groove out of the immersive source material. as one of the albums most highlighted cuts, dschuna gets the royal treatment by innervisions head and internationally revered selector dixon who proves his strong command of the dance floor with a hypnotic ride that surrounds the soaring sounds of the original with tribal esque vocals. the instrumental version drops the chants, but retains the enchantment, all elegant rhythm and gorgeous strings. versatiles i:cube, legendary producer and dj in its own right, brings a distinctly parisian touch to the spectral skorbut, whose sci-fi-imbued widescreen aura gets reimagined as laser-gun-wielding space funk machine. meanwhile, wolfgang voigt aka wassermann condenses paradigma’s roaming synths into pulsating trance swells on his stomping krautramatrik mix.

APOKALYPSE MAU
12" 15.09.17
als einer von kompakts mitbegründern und –besitzern zeichnet reinhard voigt für ein gesamtwerk verantwortlich, das unsere musikalische historie von anfang an entscheidend geprägt hat - sei es als ambient-tanz-projekt sturm, techno-raufbold s.r.i., experimenteller profan-mitstreiter pentax, ein drittel von kölns legendärer house-boyband forever sweet oder einfach unterm eigenen klarnamen, mit unentbehrlichen releases wie etwa der frühe speicher-hit “supertiel” (kom ex 2) oder die jüngsten solo-eps “kontraste” (kom 351) und “reisen & speisen” (kom 338). voigts produktionen fanden eine heimat auf kultlabels mille plateaux oder harvest, helfen aber auch beim anschieben jüngerer plattformen wie kompakt-nachwuchs kx. zurück auf dem mutterschiff, präsentiert er die neue 12” apokalypse mau, deren zwei tracks für rohen, brutzelnden, zielstrebigen techno plädieren – die sorte techno, die unerwartete dynamik aus reduziertesten synthie-motiven sowie scheinbar willkürlichen bleeps herausschält und in selbstbewusste schieber für gierige tanzflure verwandelt.

TOTAL 17 (2X12)
2x12" 01.09.17
im sommer 1999 aus der taufe gehoben, ist unsere total compilationserie kaum älter als das 21. jahrhundert selbst – was total 17 als letzte ausgabe vor der volljährigkeit kennzeichnet. und tatsächlich strahlt die 2017er kohorte einen verspielten Überschwang aus, mit dem sich nur wenig andere compilations nach über 15 jahren am markt messen können: labelveteranen und neuzugänge wie etwa superpitcher, weval, tobias thomas & michael mayer, chris klopfer, juergen paape, voigt & voigt, max scholpp und nu u orchestra begeistern mit einigen der eingängigsten tracks, die die serie bis dato gesehen hat.

wie andere total compilations zuvor, ist total 17 zuallererst eine perfekte gelegenheit in unser aktuelles programm einzutauchen, dank der actiongeladenen 2xcd version die gefeierte höhepunkte und persönliche favoriten von laurent garnier, the orb, kÖlsch, vermont, t.raumschmiere, patrice bÄumel, danny daze und vielen anderen vereint. die filetstücke jedoch dürften zweifelsohne die exklusiven tracks sein, die sich auf beiden editionen, 2xcd und 2xlp, befinden – acht brandneue produktionen von kompakt-kernkünstlern und ausgewählten labeldebütanten die sowohl den sammelnden kenner als auch den ambitionierten tanzflur-aktivisten mitreissen werden.

WHATNESS (LP+DL CODE)
12" lp 14.07.17
obwohl die letzte kompakt-offerte aus dem studio der legendären russichen synthesizeristen scsi-9 schon eine weile zurückliegt – 2008, um genau zu sein, mit dem album “easy as down” (kompakt cd 068) -, hat co-gründer und techno/house-virtuose anton kubikov nicht auf der faulen haut geaalt, sondern sein eigenes label pro-tez records gepflegt – und eine karriere als solo-künstler mit klarem drang zur verdubbten tonlandschaft und ambient-musik in die wege geleitet. whatness ist seine erste solo-album-veröffentlichung unter eigenem namen und webt einen luftigen wie schillernden klangteppich, der genau da weitermacht, wo kubikovs exzellente beiträge zu unserer pop ambient compilation-reihe aufgehört haben. anton kubikovs besonderes ohr für ambientes und tonale räume war schon immer integraler bestandteil von scsi-9s musikalischer dna, die gerne zwischen fokussierter tanzathletik und ausufernden melodieräumen changiert – doch erst als solo-künstler macht er sich daran, diese räume wirklich auszuloten und geheimnisvollen klangspuren in neblige, hallende gegenden zu folgen. kubikovs gastspiele auf mehreren ausgaben unserer pop ambient-serie deuteten auf ein vielverprechendes neues projekt im talentpool hin – ein versprechen, das mit dem mitreissenden klangbad von whatness mehr als erfüllt wird.

as internationally renowned dj and producer, uk dance pioneer sasha doesn t need much of an introduction - he s been busy revamping genre expectations since the late 80s and became famous through a plethora of musical endeavours, from residencies at legendary clubs such as the hacienda, shelley s and renaissance to an era-defining dj partnership with john digweed in the 90s or his solo studio efforts that include remixes for the xx, pet shop boys, foals, gusgus, madonna and countless other stars.

THE COW REMIXES - SIN IN SPACE PT. 3
12" 03.03.17
we continue the orb’s sin in space remix ep series with a third volume focussing on the duo’s latest full-length, the highly acclaimed cow / chill out, world! (kompakt 354 cd 134). the spontaneous, organic vibe and sample artistry of the album is reflected in three distinct reworks from highly respected kompakt mainstays the field, dave dk and jÖrg burger - all of them informed with surprising twists and displaying a clear lineage to the source material. the field’s remix of 9 elms over river eno takes the original s percussive part and unfolds it to a swirling, tropical epic that alludes as much to the orb s multifaceted sound collages as it does to the hypnotic, looping flow of the field s own output. meanwhile, dave dk turns in a club-friendly revamp of 4am exhale with the fittingly titled accellerator mix, indulging in exquisitely lyrical glitches and the magic of the straight bassdrum. jÖrg burger takes a shot at the beatless 5th dimensions with the excellent dschungeloper mix - its loose pop jam feeling and flirty shuffle rhythm recall burger’s lush lounge core efforts under his triola monicker.

COW / CHILL OUT WORLD (LP+MP3)
12" lp+mp3 14.10.16
being pioneers with a new album created in no more than 6 months, the orb are bound to be exposed to fan expectations running high, while quizzical questions about little fluffy clouds and the good old times take over. it s especially jarring as the duo of accomplished soundsmiths alex paterson and thomas fehlmann has become known for its genre-bending curiosity and surprising sonic detours, exploring experimental soundscapes as well as club-friendly beats. the funny thing is, though, that whatever the context, you know a track from the orb when you hear it. case in point: cow / chill out, world!, their latest full-length offering - a masterful ambient album that branches out in many directions, but unmistakably sounds like the orb in either ear (and probably to your third ear, too).

TEUFELSBERG
12" 09.09.16
als weiterer höhepunkt eines unglaublichen laufs, der letztes jahr mit sicko (kompakt 322) und you are a blade (kompakt 343) begann, präsentiert der uk-produzent und langjährige kompakt-vertraute rex the dog zwei brandneue knaller auf teufelsberg, ein perfekter spagat zwischen dem kraftvollen, melodieverliebten techno seiner früheren produktionen und dem rohen, muskulösen stil mit analogem biss, welcher seinen aktuellen output charakterisiert. letzteres sollte nicht verwundern, ist rex doch zunehmend in do-it-yourself synthesizer-design abgetaucht und baut inzwischen modulare gerätschaften für seine studio und bühnenbelange selbst. das titelstück teufelsberg startet schlank und sehnig, dreht mit treibenden beats und einer simplen, aber schwer effektiven bassline schnell den hahn auf, der wahre star ist hier jedoch eine mitreissende melodie, die wie in zeitlupe über die gesamte lauflänge des tracks explodiert, dank ungemein malerischer synthesizerklänge die auch vor radikalen breaks nicht zurückschrecken. währenddessen keilt die rückseite mit einer ordentlichen portion rave auf dem industrial-beeinflussten shortwave aus erneut ein unermüdlicher techno-schieber zur besten sendezeit, der sowohl monumental als auch verspielt kann.

WEVAL (2X12 INCH LP+MP3)
2x12"+mp3 13.06.16
weval beziehen ihre inspiration nicht aus einem einzelnen musikalischen genre, sondern eher aus einer akkumulation von musik, die sie inspiriert. die ergebnisse zeichnet eine beeindruckend kohärente vision aus, aufnahmen wie das dramatische the battle, der bassknurrer i dont need it oder die trip-saga madness teilen diesselbe dna aus schwungvoller nostalgie, einer schwäche für immersive klangschnitzerei und einer gewissen delle im groove. sie nähren sich auch aus zutiefst persönlichen erfahrungen und stimmungen, wie zum beispiel bei der eindringlichen elektronischen ballade youre mine, dem vorsichtig geschichteten, polaroid-gefärbten just in case oder dem wunderschön gesungenen schlussakt years to build. und manchmal ist es nur ein altes, verstimmtes klavier, das im flur herumsteht: immer wenn ich dran vorbei lief, musste ich darauf herumklimpern, erklärt merijn, also wurde es ein zentraler bestandteil von you made it (part i). kein zweifel: dies ist wevals stärkstes und organischstes material bisher, was durchaus was bedeutet, wenn man das talent bedenkt welches bereits in schmalen, doch gewichtigen portfolio der band steckt.

THE FOLLOWER (2X12 INCH LP+MP3)
2x12"+mp3 01.04.16
much-celebrated kompakt staple the field returns to the spotlight with new album the follower, his fifth full-length offering after from here we go sublime (kompakt rsd 02 cd 57), yesterday and today (kompakt 193 cd 72), looping state of mind (kompakt 241 cd 94) and cupids head (kompakt 290 cd 110). swedish soundsmith axel willner is well-known for his mastery when it comes to the allusive layering of loops, but it was with his last album cupids head that a newly-found, somewhat pressing snappishness started to replace the soft-hued sonics of his ambient-infused techno, imbued with a darker mood and stronger footing than before. a carefully gauged balance of stoic motorik and gloomy drones was key here - just as it is for the follower which goes even further in blurring the lines between concrete experimentation, body music and precisely laid-out arrangement, leading to one of the most rhythmically and texturally engaging listening experiences in willners catalogue.

the man whos seen it all, thats terranovas fetisch, but he had it coming. as punks earliest and certainly youngest adopter, he strolled through late 1970s berlin, then moved to new york researching the first symptoms of hip hop, only to find himself being a many clubs resident dj in london at the end of the eighties. enters terranova, shrouded in mystery from the very beginning, fetisch‘s go-to project, that he originally conceived in 1996 to explore new club territory, and that has since built its very own cult following. kompakt truly feels honored to be the new home to an artist with such a rich background in club culture, especially as terranovas latest incarnation includes berlins house staple and boywonder &me as well as guest singer khan in his preferred role as the longest running hype in the history of underground awesomeness. consequently, it is with great poise that the trio‘s latest 12inch >so strong< commands its army of listeners to the floor, not unlike terranovas first outing on kompakt, the confidently named i want to go out. both the title track and epic flipside boogie for the dollar make up for a double headliner that takes you on a beguiling trip to the dark side of the club. no only do terranovas sequencing and beat programming deliver in spades, the package also sports some of the best vocals khan has churned out to date, featuring his trademark fusion of cool indifference and pure sleaze: >i give myself up to your splendor... so strong.<

rainbow arabia have been one kompakts most endearing acts to work with us in years. the husband and wife duo danny and tiffany preston started our year out with the genre-defying full length >boys and diamonds< which went on to become one our most acclaimed releases of recent time - the los angeles times went so far as to proclaim >rainbow arabia are l.a.s new electro heroes< in a recent feature. in honor of the exhaustive touring throughout the us and europe the band continues to trail blaze, we found the need to put out another limited edition 7 inch for the fans and collectors out there. the title song >boys and diamonds< combines the sway of >80s pop< with the raw power of cumbia and ethno-dance mayhem. tiffanys vocals are hauntingly powerful and a testament to the sheer will and work this band has put in over the past year. hardmix are a favorite of the band and we here at kompakt were honored have him tackle the song. what we received is melodic techno bliss - a shapeshifting extravagance that uniquely keeps the essence of the original but with a solid bass kick to keep the dance floor well on momentum

BOYS AND DIAMONDS (LP + CD)
12" lp + cd 28.02.11
boys and diamonds is unmistakably a pop album but also one that comfortably fits in with kompakts long-standing lineage of genre-refracting releases. you will be hard up find another record that cohesively brings to mind siouxsie rubbing elbows with shabba ranks, giorgio moroder sipping daiquiris in bali, desmond dekker envisioned through skittering footwork, tom tom club sitting in with congotronics, even early madonna produced by chris and cosey. unlikely as all of that sounds, rainbow arabia makes it sound easy. mostly recorded at their home studio in echo park, muppet palace, boys and diamonds was written and produced by the couple with help from their friends in los angeles and beyond. drummer/producer extraordinaire butchy fuego (pit er pat, boredoms, mia) contributes arrangements and beats in places, and icy demons dylan ryan plays on the percussion-heavy island shuffle nothin gonna be undone . the album was mixed at the wonderful hobby shop studios in la by mudrock, who also adds some final production touches on the record. the 11 new songs on the album, were also made possible by the encouragement of peers/heroes in la like former ghosts, fool s gold, secret circuit, abe vigoda, and part time punks dj crew. outside of their hometown, they also found support and inspiration from kindred spirits like pictureplane, spoek mathambo, as well as their new home, the ever-illustrious kompakt

JATOMA (LP + CD)
12" lp + cd 08.11.10
jatoma are all about the unknown and though they are new amongst us they remain cloaked in paradoxes and already questioned by many. some think that one of the members is a famed producer amongst 2 genius teenagers.
others project they are a side act for a band held in the highest regard. some will speculate they are just trying to get more attention by remaining unknown. the facts remain blurry and ambiguous but there remains an clear authenticity surrounding these factors - jatoma are clearly one of 2010s most inventive new acts our ears have had the pleasure to hear and its with our excitement we welcome them to kompakt. so enter their self-titled debut full length - >jatoma<.

a fine collection of interpretations picked from three of todays leading newcomers.
gold panda has been causing a stir with his remixes for health, bloc party etc.. here he elegantly samples the vinyl from >i have the moon...< into a savvy dub-stepped dilla-esque roller.
rainbow arabia from los angeles remake >sequenced< into a moroder-fest with tiffany prestons siouxsie-esque voice crooning throughout.
back in london, walls (sam willis from allez allez and alessio natalizio) submerge >leave it< in a sublime sea with waves of bells, guitars and cello.

DONT GO
12" 11.05.09
er hat es wieder getan... seiner eigenen tradition treu bleibend, dem synthetischen ende von disco ein modernes denkmal nach dem anderen zu setzen, schafft auch “don t go” diesen spagat zwischen vergangenheit und zukunft, zwischen glückseeligkeit und gnadenloser abstraktion. “don t go” ist ein klassischer köhncke hit, inklusive infektiösem hook, einer halsbrecherischen und doch mitreissenden bassline und irren Überraschungsmomenten, dieangenehm an der hirnrinde kratzen.... ein herrlicher wahnsinn. auf der b-seite erwartet uns ex-closer musiker dirk leyers mit einem tief pumpenden remix von “(it s gonna be) alright”, einem unserer lieblingstracks desletztjährigen albums “safe and sound”. leyers katapultiert das légère original mitten auf den mainfloor, ohne dabei auch nur einen funken deepness aufzugeben. alle reden über house. wir tanzen lieber dazu.
