Pop Ambient 2021

With ‘Pop Ambient 2021’, the Kompakt label marks twenty-one years of its 'Pop Ambient' compilation series, curated by the imprint’s founder Wolfgang Voigt in the name of creating perfect soundtracks for the post-clubbing comedown hours. As ever, it contains a list of established favourites and newcomers, including Yui Onodera, Blank Gloss, Thore Pfeiffer and many more.

WhoMadeWho
Brighter

WhoMadeWho (no question mark - their choice) are a Copenhagen collective who make restless and eclectic music that writers more qualified than this lowly hack have struggled to put a label on. They melt together pop, disco, punk and wild grooves that sorta of follow their own course. The band have bagged support slots with the likes of LCD Soundsystem and Daft Punk, something which may give you a better idea of where their full-length 'Brighter' is coming from than any journalistic rambling.

Thomas Fehlmann
Gute Luft

Swiss electronic musician Thomas Fehlmann - a one-time member of Alex Paterson’s The Orb - embarked on his most ambitious project yet for ‘Gute Luft’. This is the soundtrack to a massive documentary TV series ‘24h Berlin’, a show which follows the lives of Berliners over a full day. The record infuses Fehlmann’s classic Detroit house and techno influences with sounds from the German capital’s equivalent scene.

GAS
Pop

Originally released in 2000, Wolfgang Voigt’s fourth album under his Gas moniker marked a shift in emphasis for the project. Still beautifully textured in its drone-heavy psychedelia, 'Pop' is also more sharply-focussed than previous efforts. Reissued in 2016 as part of a box set, ‘Pop’ is now available on stand-alone CD.

Kölsch
Now Here No Where

Danish producer and DJ Rune Reilly Kölsch announces his fourth studio album, breaking with the themes of his ‘years’ trilogy of records in the 2010s with Now Here No Where and focussing on the present and the confusion of existing in 2020. As ever, it’s a collection of lovingly crafted techno, both melodic and lush.

Lake Turner
Videosphere

Championed by Foals’ lead singer Yannis Philippakis and a former member of Great Eskimo Hoax and Trophy Wife, London-based artist Andrew Halford - better known as Lake Turner - releases his debut album. Videosphere is a gorgeous blend of ambient music, disco and techno that will appeal to fans of Caribou and Four Tet.

GAS
Oktember

Following the box-set release from a few years back, there’s now a stand-alone vinyl re-issue for Oktember, the mythologically hard-to-find 1999 mini-album from German musician Wolfgang Voigt, also known as Gas. It’s a two-track album featuring side-long compositions constructed from sampled strings and was originally released on Mille Plateaux in 1999.

Total 20

The Kompakt Total series is to techno what Now That’s What I Call Music is to...er...supermarket shelves these days, I guess. Anyway, the parallel here is the longevity of the beloved techno compilation. They’ve been releasing one a year for the past 20. It’s with a somber tone that they release Total 20 due to the lack of clubbing happening this year - but with this edition, revel in the joy that has been has been and look to the future - they promise to see you on the floor again soon. Features tracks from Jürgen Paape, Jörg Burger, Michael Mayer, Sascha Funke and Voigt & Voigt. 8 track LP or 22 track CD.

Steve Moore
Frame Dragging

New York-based synth maestro Steve Moore releases his first music on the Kompakt label in precisely a decade since ‘Bayern Kurve’ came out on the label’s Speicher series. This new four-track 12” EP, Frame Dragging, covers Balearic minimalism, full-on house and blissfully chilled-out electronica.

GAS
Königsforst

Warm on the heels of last November’s Zauberberg reissue, it’s the equally welcome Königsforst. Following on from its predecessor, it has all the fundamentals of the signature Gas sound: thickets of grainy, slowed-down strings and brass ushered along by mucky, throbbing kicks into lush forested reveries.

Velvet Desert Music Vol. 2

The second instalment in Jörg Burger’s series of compilations for the Kompakt label, Velvet Desert Music Vol. 2 seeks to mingle the core aesthetic components of diverse genres such as soundtrack work, downtempo pop, kosmiche and Sixties psychedelia. Features tracks by the likes of The Fantastic Twins, Sascha Funke and Superpitcher on top of newcomers like Golden Bug and Mount Obsidian. 
  • CD (KompaktCD156)

The Field
Yesterday and Today

The Field's debut Here We Go Sublime was the kind of record that would be hard to improve on but Axel Willner tries his best anyway with Yesterday and Today - his second full length on Kompakt. It continues his forays into abstract but warmly inviting techno and shows him collaborating with Battles drummer John Stanier and 'covering' the Corgis Everybody's Got To Learn Sometime.

Total 19

Kompakt returns with the latest in a long line of its roster compilation series Total. The 19th instalment, the vinyl edition of which contains exclusively unreleased tracks, features contributions from Jürgen Paape, Jonathan Kaspar, Sascha Funke, The Modernist, Voigt & Voigt and Gui Boratto among many others.

The Field
The Follower

Kompakt bring us The Field’s The Follower on CD and 180 gram vinyl. This album is six tracks of luscious long-form techno made from his trademark dense loops and beautiful textures. With even more of a kosmische element, this release is the perfect melancholic headphone music to drift off with.

Thomas Fehlmann
1929 – Das Jahr Babylon

Thomas Fehlmann may have turned 60 last year, but despite his advancing years the part-time member of The Orb shows no signs of slowing down. In fact he’s increased his output recently - 1929 - Das Jahr Babylon is Fehlmann’s third full-length release of 2018. It might be his best, too. The music here was made as a soundtrack for a documentary/podcast series. The murky anti-techno rhythms, foggy reverbs and eerie choral samples here make for an evocative and melancholy listen.
  • CD (Kompaktcd153)

GAS
Zauberberg

Wolfgang Voigt’s second album under his lauded forest techno moniker GAS is back, singly tree-issued on Kompakt. First released in ‘97, Zauberberg offers Voigt’s revolving branches of hazy, throbbing ambient at their most ambiguous, as if unsure of what really waits out there in the woods. The third track especially is one of his masterpieces.

Kolsch
Speicher 106

2017 was pretty busy for Kölsch. The Danish producer released his third full-length record (1989, via Kompakt), dropped a couple of EPs and did a DJ set from high up the Eiffel Tower. It’s no surprise that he’s eased up a bit in 2018, but the one born Rune Reilly Kølsch has still managed to get a new record out before the end of the year. Both cuts on Speicher 106 are the sort of widescreen tech-house on which Kölsch has built his empire.

The Field
Infinite Moment

Hope is something we could do with in 2018. Axel Willner AKA The Field had been toying with various new ideas for his sixth full length album before realising perhaps that we could do with an album that is warm and comforting. Therefore 'Infinite Moment' is hued with a rich gauze of straight to the heart electronics to soothe your mind in troubled times.

Thomas Fehlmann
Los Lagos

Thomas Fehlmann has been keeping busy. Just three months after the release of The Orb’s No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds LP, Fehlmann is set to drop his first solo full-length since 2010’s Gute Luft. Los Lagos contains eight polished pieces of techno and features a collaboration with Max Loderbauer. As with Gute Luft this one’s out on Kompakt.

Total 18

In the year of their twenty-fifth birthday, how apt that Kompakt should run the latest instalment of their Total series to twenty-five tracks? Well, on the CD at least - there’s just eight on the vinyl, but that does come with a download code. Total 18 is a mixture of fresh faces (Ghost Vision, Aaron Ahrends) and seasoned vets (T. Raumschmiere, Geiger). The famed German techno label blends young and old with aplomb here.
  • CD (Kompaktcd147)

GAS
Rausch

You wait years for a new GAS album and two come along (almost) at once. Hot on the heels of last year's 'Narkopop' this is a different kettle of fish altogether, consisting of one long track which you are meant to listen to in one sitting. Wolfgang Voigt's work is ideal for this long form presentation. He's possibly less good at poetry though, so we won't reproduce in full the poem he's written to accompany the work.
  • Vinyl Double LP (Kompakt386)

Kölsch
1989

1989 marks the third and final installment of Kölsch’s autobiographical trilogy. It being the year he hit his teens and his parents getting divorced, Kölsch disappeared into music. Uplifting, colourful, and playful soundtracking through techno, house and classical score with collaborator Gregor Schwellenbach. LP comes with Download code.

Kenneth James Gibson
In The Fields Of Nothing

Kenneth James Gibson - also know by Eight Frozen Modules, dubLoner and about a dozen other names - comes through with his second LP for Kompakt. In The Fields Of Nothing is a heady experience, an LP that combines thousand-yard synthscapes with swirling vortexes of processed piano and strings. The results are intense and, on tracks like the aquatic William Basinski homage ‘Plastic Consequence’, frequently very beautiful.
  • CD (KOMPAKTCD143)

Fahrland
Mixtape Vol. 1

If you left the city that never sleeps because it managed to sneak a gram of ket into Berghain and moved to the countryside what sort of music would you make? Fahrland (aka Geiger) recently made that move and is now producing the sort of lush, funky, and assured electro pop that screams going to bed before midnight. 
  • CD (Kompaktcd144)

John Tejada
Dead Start Program

More techno please John. Thanks. Mr. Tejada returns with yet more for Kompakt with Dead Start Program, which demonstrates his trance-inducing and haze-imbibed style in its totality. With a tinge of signature Tejada soul, these eleven tracks mark an unbelievable thirteenth album in a catalogue of hard-hitters.
  • Vinyl Double LP (Kompakt374)
  • CD (Kompaktcd141)

GAS
Narkopop

Well what do we have here then? Following on from that enormous box set of his greatest work of 20 years vintage, Wolfgang Voigt re-ignites his Gas project with a new album which, though it continues the thick foggy sonics of earlier work introduces dense and sometimes atonal sonics to the magical mist with that pulsing kick drum as always ever present.   
  • Vinyl Triple LP (Kompakt371)

Anton Kubikov
Whatness

Best known for his work as one half of Russian synth agitators SCSI-9, Anton Kubikov has stepped out on his own with an album of weightless ambient pieces. The tracks here combine synthetic soundscapes, somnambulant ivory tinkling and generous helpings of reverb. All in all, the overall effect is one of pleasant tranquility.
  • CD (KOMPAKT138)

Kolsch
Speicher 97

Kolsch weirdly broke out of the sleek German Kompakt et al scene last year with a single that got played on mainstream UK radio. Nice work, but he hasn’t let it divert the pathway of his work, which continues here with a pair of nice minimalist cuts. Speicher 97 is a 12” release from Kompakt.
  • Vinyl 12" (KOMPEX097)

Vermont
II

Sophomore efforts are always difficult, but Vermont simply continues where they left off. On II, German synthesizer-whisperers Marcus Wogull and Danilo Plessow (from Motor City Drum Ensemble) once again show a world brimming with vintage analog electronics, where they have created exciting upbeat soundscapes approaching the krautrocky. A fine example of why we love it when Kompakt makes exceptions on its strict minimal-techno-producers-only policy.
