after i heard enol s beautiful track white mango on initial cut, i felt the need to reach out. i had a long and friendly conversation with matthieu (enola) about our musical background and agreed on the fact that we both have a weakness for pop music and early detroit techno, and quickly came to the conclusion that something with a little pop would be perfect for the label. enola came to us with >slow motion< featuring the vocals of will caulfield. its something different for enola, and something different for us, deep techno pop, perfect for 5am! enola is the new project of french dj matthieu monnin, who used to be part of the techno outfit noirdegout. matthieu now works on his own, finding his niche in melodious techno, taking inspiration from the sounds of the nineties. he has done work with the likes of rodriguez jr, anoraak, and arno gonzalez, and now he joins correspondant with >slow motion<. on the flip side, nhar, the other half of correspondant turns the darkness into light with for me, his best remix to date. if the original is for 5am, nhars remix is for 5pm, when the sun still shines and its warmth still remains.
this is mina records 9th release with masaya, label boss, finally in the spotlight on production, arrangement and singing duties. her first ep on her own label: >again / get you< both have a minimalist melancholy feel in the electro pop vein.
>again< is remixed by nhar, (frenchman who has just brought out his own ep on ripertons perspectiv label), giving it an 80s soft synth pop sound.
>get you< is remixed by yapacc, resulting in a deeply rhythmic tech-house stomper.
4 totally different tracks to suit various club contexts.
perspectiv welcomes french producer nhar with 2 sweet tracks that already got played on bbc radio 1 by seth troxler. the title track is backed by an equally impressive remix by john daly. tapping into human emotions, using vocals and touching on an almost neo-romantic feel, nhar has once again developed his sound further still. irish producer john daly takes the blissful original and adds his own touch of progressive rawness. the originals electronica edge is smoothed by dalys deepness allowing us to be drawn in yet further. johns dub mix is a stunning piece of beautifull house with an array of kaleidoscopic synths that sweep beautifully and boldly within focus. serious niceness, this dub mix! another great perspectiv release! played by: seth troxler, ripperton, deetron, soulclap, agnes, noze, nicolas jaar, d julz etc.

as dj and as live act, frances nhar certainly knows how to tweak the controls. hes transmitting his message on every channel, sporting his personal recipe for dancefloor mayhem, consisting of driving beats, melancholic euphoria and some other ingredients meant to stay a secret. on diverse labels like mobilee, plak or modelisme, the former member of the 22 crew shines with his panoramic view, melodic depth of focus and concise footwork. that love has to be rewarded, so kompakts jörg burger, a.k.a. the modernist throws in one of his rare remixes for close up, delivering that bonus punch and enhancing the originals charm with the razor-sharp musical scale hes become known for. its a born winner for wir
soniculture welcomes a new artist to the family. bernard siefert, betterknown as nhar is known for his releases on labels such as mobilee, meerestief, plak and modelisme. his hypnotic sound is unique, adding at the same time fine tuned melodies and vocals, in this way, enriching the whole musical experience. with this release, nhar shows us a bit more energy, keeping the soul and exploring the feelings that characterize his productions, but making us dance even more than usual. this is an amazing piece of work from one of the most original producers of the new french techno scene. the a side begins with >derceto<, a very modern techno track but with an old school touch and an outstanding percussion arrangement. the hypnotic bassline is strong and involving and the vocals make it dirty, when needed. thinkfreak closes this side with a powerful remix, taking the energy to higher levels and making it a dance floor slammer for the craziest moments of the night (or day). with >owls are not what they seem<, nharshows us how hypnotic he can be. the track is filled with sophistication andthe production details are exquisite. this is electronic dance music at itsbest. dalessandro & expander present a version of >owls are not what theyseem< that is sexy and groovy and is for sure perfect for that special afterhour moment or simply when there is a special need for love.
we are proud to announce the first vinyl release of the label we invite for this first one nhar from france. this fine & talented electronic producer is well known for his music income quality. ever signed on meerestief, mobilee, plak and more... he deliver for this release two minimal and groovy tracks
already support by james holden, ripperton, anthony collins, sian. nhar has been releasing stuff since 2005 on labels like mobilee, plak and modelisme. with dont forget to lick, the frenchman has conjured up a real booty shaker from the depths of his hard drive for meerestief. summery drumming on the other hand by lucy, comes across tender and almost fragile. the artist hails from paris and released his formidable debut glass computer on rippertons perspective label. his contribution for meerestief is a fabulous track with dreamy pads and surreal sound, riding on a clear kick drum. it is a movie sound track and a small symphonie a the same time!
with only a few releases on plak and mobilee , the southman nhar landmarks his own vision of techno :liquid bleeps , pearls of acid ,a catchy beat and melancholic feeling . don t worry ,keep on dancing nhar takes care of your mind
a mix between low minimal wounded grooves and abstract melancholic sounds with groovy funky tech/house sequences. nhar always aims on the hypnotic moments in music and plays some tricks on your mind. listen carefully // nhar is a member of 22 crew and he worked already together with jennifer cardini & electric indigo...
25 jahre kompakt sind kein grund sich aufzuregen. aber dennoch ein schöner anlass, einen gelassenen blick auf die lage der elektronischen musik zu werfen. denn der globale minimal-techno, in seinen unterschiedlichen spielarten, hat sich bekanntlich längst als beste tanzmusik der welt etabliert. recht so. was nun? gar nichts. weitertanzen.

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.
felix bernhardt is back on delude records. his productions are characterized by glitchy, floating and hissing sounds. this release contains four tracks. on the a side are the tracks burdat and lenstro, true masterpieces of modern techno production. on the flip, the tracks up up up and sand wand make the same, brachial sound in best techno style.
nach einem exzellenten 12inch lauf im letzten jahr mit releases von kü,,nstlern wie kö,,lsch (kompakt extra 93), danny daze (kompakt extra 91) oder patrice bä,,umel (komp akt extra 89) prä,,sentiert unsere vielgerü,,hmte speicher-serie einen triumphalen labelauftakt fü,,r 2017, dank zweier schlü,,sselfiguren im kompakt-universum: reinhard voigt und terranova. voigt lä,,sst dem starken eindruck seiner aktuellen kontraste ep (kompakt 351) einen verlockend kratzenden und hypnotischen remix von terranovas labrador folgen, im original vom restless album (kompakt cd 123) bekannt. derweil revanchiert sich die terranova-crew mit einer elastisch federnden neubearbeitung von voigts husky beide tracks vereint natü,,rlich die liebe zu prä,,sentem t anzflurminimalismus mit einem kraftvollen aufwä,,rtshaken. perfekter stoff fü,,r anspruchsvolle ausgä,,nger und aufleger.
tanzflur-dresseur reinhard voigt ist mit neuer garnitur am start, ein tandem von zwei rohen, eigensinnigen technoschiebern, die nahtlos an das hochgelobte solo-release reisen & speisen (kompakt 338) und die zündende time is running split-ep mit michael mayer (kompakt 328) anschliessen. dazwischen konnte er sogar noch ein bisschen spielraum im geschäftigen kompakt-treiben herausschälen, um einen seltenen remix für el_txef_a auf dem aufstrebenden underground-label forbidden colours unterzubringen. nie um einen kopfnicker-dreh verlegen, fügt sich voigts jüngste veröffentlichung kontraste mit kraftvollem, minimalistischem techno gar kuschelig ins bisherige gesamtwerk: oszillierend zwischen reiner bewegung und monumental-abstraktem riff, verwebt the singing saw auf der a-seite mehrere angeraute synthesizer-motive um eine stoisch-ermächtigende bassdrum herum, während sich die b-seiten-aufnahme trust für die panorama-route entscheidet und seine täuschend simplen, doch ungeheuer effektiven lead-sounds zu einem überragenden schleifer mit seidenkante auftürmt. wie von reinhard voigt zu erwarten war, ist hier das ganze grösser als die summe seiner teile - ein weiterer beleg für seine meisterschaft in sachen kracher mit kniff.
presenting the fourth vinyl release, los angeles imprint reinhardt welcomes romanian sonic explorer akim# to the fold. culminating in four tracks crossing genres and themes, pulling from influences and experiences throughout a history crafting his art within the bucharest electronic music scene. taking elements of ambient, electronica and techno, channeled through a dream-state lens. the phosphene ep is created for the dance floor with a soundscape sensibility, making for an unmapped odyssey.
“spiel nicht mit den schmuddelkindern” heißt ein bekannter song des liedermachers franz-josef degenhardt aus dem jahr 1965. degenhardt, der rapper, ist so ein schmuddelkind. degenhardt rappt über dinge, über die man nicht rappt. es geht um sehr viel zucker, psycho, perversion und regenbogen. entscheidend für die qualität seiner songs sind nicht technik und doppelreimfrequenz sondern emotion, sprache und die geschichte. seine geschichte. ein einflussreicher rapjournalist, der namentlich nicht genannt werden möchte, hat mal gesagt, aus ihm könne ein “schwarzer casper” werden.
nice price deal !!! helping listeners to escape reality, which has been known to grate, on occasion, has long been a noble aim of many musicians. one of the most effective ways to do that is to create imaginary soundtracks for impossible science-fiction films, the darker and more un hollywood-like, the better. another method is to take inspiration from great works of architecture, which, as goethe cogently noted, is frozen music. the latter route is used by brooklyn producer jonas reinhardt (aka jesse reiner) on his sixth album, palace savant. reiner undergoes a profound solo odyssey on this album. the vinyl lp includes a download code.

a twenty year break away from making music is almost unheard of especially within electronic music circles, but that is where antenna happy finds himself with pinto. clocking in at 9.09 pinto draws from psychedelia and techno set straight for the sun. this kaleidoscopic sonic excursion has all the makings of a cult classic, and heads up the debut 12- release on newly founded imprint reinhardt records. taking lead on the b-side an entirely different affair in the shape of fallen. this is benchmark electronic music, as arpeggiators take flight mirrored against hypnotic acid bass, for a journey into the outer house territories. closing the ep, spark holds the reigns. conceived within the same stretch as pinto, however it wasn t until some months later that spark took on its full form. emotive modular synths lay the groundwork, connecting the dots between low-slung techno and house music, culminating in a track that sits in neither genre camp. spark will appear on the digital release only. the ep title track takes its name and inspiration from paintings by antenna happy s three-year-old daughter, whose birth inspired him to return to making music. close-ups of these paintings can be seen in the artwork for the release.
