  1. Fan (4:51)
  2. You Know What's Gone (6:11)
  3. This Is For Decor Only (7:43)
Review: Barnt returns for a weighty, new wavey three-tracker on Kompakt, not quite straying from his trademark minimal tech style, but nevertheless working in novel elements. 'This Is For The Decor Only' is a glistening ambient trance cut, working in detuned leads and melodic 'woahs' (woah indeed), while 'You Know What's Gone' recalls everything from mid-80s body music, new romantic dance, and medieval music. 'Fan' is the ambient closer, revealing the producer's musical talents far beyond that of mere dance music. As Barnt says, he wanted to touch on a "ceremonial, emotional, grand spirit", and he's achieved just that.

  1. Everything (feat Play Paul) (5:29)
  2. Everything (instrumental) (5:28)
  3. Pulsions Organiques (5:13)
Review: 'Everything', Captain Mustache's Play Paul-sporting Kompakt label debut, may well be the sometime Bordello a Parigi and My Favourite Robot Records contributor's strongest single to date. Combining punchy electro beats, throbbing space disco synth sounds (think Lindstrom's 'I Feel Space'), picturesque lead lines and wavy female vocals, the track wears its vintage influences proudly whilst still offering something fresh, different and thrillingly addictive. The same could be said of bonus cut 'Pulsions Organique', a veritable squelch-along which pits melancholic, mid-'80s synth pop chords and memorable, Pet Shop Boys style melodies against Bobby Orlando-esque sequenced bass and hybrid freestyle/electro beats. Like the title track, it's genuinely ace.

Review: The Kompakt labels now very much one of the underground's elder statesmen when it comes to techno but the Cologne crew still manage to find new artists to do a fine job of mining its familiar sound. It is debutant Nicky Elisabeth who makes a fine impression here having played at plenty of the label's parties and various European festivals in the last couple of years. Her sounds is synth heavy, spacious and epic techno with shimmering chords and bristling drum work offset by more breathy and soulful vocals. It is a perfect fit for this label.

  8. Geworden (8:44)
Review: With nearly 40 years experience as a producer, having collaborated with everyone from Holger Hiller, Moritz Von Oswald and Juan Atkins among others, Swiss legend Thomas Fehlmann presents Los Lagos ('The Lakes'). It's his seventh solo full-length (and fourth for Koelsch institution Kompakt), following his Berlin inspired 2010 LP Gute Luft. The multi-talented composer and long standing member of The Orb embarked on a deep journey of soul searching while recording the album - and in the process incorporated elements of art, disco, minimalism, jazz and funk. A collection of glacial and textural dub introversions as best exemplified on "Lowenzahnzimmer" or "Morrislouis", but he also makes room for moments of pulsating hypnotic dancefloor dynamics ("Triggerism") and moments of lush ambient bliss reminiscent of his work with Dr. Alex Patterson on "Geworden".

  4. Rausch D (13:44)
Review: Since the release of 2016's epic Gas retrospective, Box, the pioneering drone ambient producer (real name Wolfgang Voigt) has been surprisingly productive. Rausch is the lauded electronic musician's speedy follow-up to last year's Narkopop, which happened to be his first full-length for over 15 years. As you'd expect, Rausch is superb, with Voigt variously turning cinematic orchestral tracks into hybrid electro-acoustic epics. While some are beat-less and fluid, others are loopy, hypnotic and otherworldly, with the German building tension via subtle rhythm tracks that draw on techno and IDM. The results are near faultless, as Voight once again proves that he's a true master of his ambient art.

Review: It's sometimes hard to exactly place the music of Japanese producer Hiroshi Watanabe. Warm, melodic and unashamedly positive, it melds the relentless hypnotism (though not the sound or tempo) of trance with the wide-eyed feel of Balearica, the futurism of Detroit and the comfortable groove of deep house. Until the End of Time, his eighth album, continues this hard-to-place-but-easy-to-love approach. There are downtempo moments (see the blissful "Smile"), floor-friendly romps (the dreamy tech-jazz of "I'm Leaving Home" and bubbling futurism of "Run Through The Road In The Fog"), and cuts that are just plain gorgeous ("Inner Space", "Dear Friends").

Review: You have to admire Alex Warren AKA Kiwi's work rate. Here he makes his Kompakt bow with his eleventh EP since the start of 2018. Vocalist Bestle guests on superb A-side "Hello Echo", a spacey chunk of lilting nu-disco/synth-pop fusion that's so deliciously warm and summery that we believe it will become a sing-along anthem before the year is out. He shifts focus a little on B-side opener "Down With The Rhythm", a more sleazy, analogue-driven affair that sits somewhere between Chicago style acid-jack, effervescent NYC freestyle and bold, 21st century nu-disco, before offering a deep, melodious and melancholic take on acid-electro that could well be the most arresting, ear-catching moment on an EP that's full of them.

Review: With a sound perfectly crafted for the emotive pop tones of Kompakt, Kolsch delivers the 1977 long player in a cascade of effervescent melody rendered through bold production. There are light, fluffy moments such as the hands-aloft opener "Oma" and the lamenting closer "Felix", while elsewhere you can find the German producer indulging a love of dub techno with the crafty delays of "Basshund". It's not all soft and sweet though, as the electro-house grind of "Eiswinter" attests as it works up a sweaty main room fervour. Likewise "Bappedeckel" has a stadium-sized approach to synths and track dynamics aimed squarely at getting huge crowds moving in unison.

  9. Papageno 30 Years Later (6:55)
Review: Childhood memories can be some of the most vivid, so it's little surprise to find Kolsch daydreaming about old family holidays on his sophomore full-length, 1983. While it's a thoroughly contemporary sounding album, there's certainly an overtly orange and red, Kodachrome inspired feel to proceedings, as if Kolsch was trying to capture the feel of old family photographs in music. In practice, this means a largely joyous blend of colourful synthesizer melodies, undulating electronic strings, and soft-touch beats inspired by a mixture of classic house, techno, tech-house and early 80s synth pop. Without fail, the resultant music is effortlessly joyous.

Review: Since the release of his debut 12" back in 2013, Anton Kubikov has established himself as one of the fastest-rising names in the dub techno scene. For this keenly anticipated debut album, he's flipped the script a little, delivering a set of breathtaking ambient tracks. Given the atmospheric nature of his previous productions and his obvious attention to detail, it's a move that not only makes sense, but also results in a string of brilliant highlights. Alongside dark and moody, horror-influenced soundscapes and claustrophobic, dub techno-informed pieces, you'll also find Jonny Nash-esque ambient guitar works, blissful piano compositions, gentle new age electronica and the sparkling, wall-of-sound orchestral drone of impeccable closer "Entrance".

  2. 4 AM Exhale (Dave DK Accellerator mix 7-16) (7:15)
  3. 5th Dimensions (Joerg Burger Dschungeloper mix 8-42) (7:16)
Review: The Orb's 2016 set, C.O.W (Chill Out World) was almost universally acclaimed as a sofa-friendly return to form; a genuine ambient opus that owed more to Brian Eno than Lee 'Scratch' Perry. It's perhaps fitting, then, that the rework that kicks off this remix 12" - a wonderfully woozy, head-in-the-clouds affair by The Field - has no dancefloor pretensions whatsoever. It's very dubbed-out and hypnotic, of course, with undulating melody lines stretching out over layers of field recordings and barely audible samples. Elsewhere, Dave DK delivers loved-up chord progressions, fizzing synth lines and eccentric house beats, while the Joerg Burger Dschungeloper remix of "5th Dimensions" gets the right balance between rhythmic hypnotism and glistening ambient bliss.

  1. Surfer's Hymn (Actress Primitive Patterns extended mix)
Review: This remix is nothing new, having already been released in edited form on a 7" single earlier in 2011. But on hearing this 12 minute long version you'll see what a travesty it was to not be released this way in the first place. Opening with five minutes of marimba melody and sampled ocean sounds, with Noah Lennox's vocals cut into rectangular shards, it has all the rounded lushness of Panda Bear's production coupled with Actress's dark, compressed edges. But it's only when it gets into its second half that the real power of this remix becomes apparent, when the sub bass begins to build and the crunchy toms bring in a whole new ferocity to the track. One of the best things released on Kompakt for a long time.

Review: Jake Williams has been fairly productive since bringing his Rex The Dog project to Kompakt in early 2015. Even so, Teufelsberg marks his first single release of 2016. The title track sees him in fine form, lacing woozy, stretched-out lead lines and dreamy pads atop a thrusting, Italo-disco influenced, arpeggio groove. It also features a peach of a breakdown, which is guaranteed to get the spine tingling before the groove returns with a vengeance. Flipside "Shortwave" sees Williams combining Bobby Peru bleeps and Moroder style arpeggio synthesizers to devastating effect, a clutch of notable, repeated vocal samples rounding off a sweaty, floor-friendly concoction.

Following up an impressive run of releases on the likes of E-Beamz, Lost Palms and Australia's Red Ember, Shorokhova returns with four evocative tracks on the ever reliable Kompakt imprint. From the sensual breakbeat driven progressive house vibe of "Lily", soothing and sensual deep house for the late night on "Close Your Eyes" and the slinky and hypnotic tech hose of "White Becomes Black" - we have only seen the start of Shorokhova's blossoming and promising career.

Review: Signs Under Test is the 12th album released by John Tejada since his emergence in the late '90s, putting aside the various other projects he's been involved with, this alone is the kind of fact you have to applaud. Arriving some 2 and a bit years on from The Predicting Machine, this new album naturally surfaces via Kompakt and it's 11 tracks suggest Tejada's creative powers remain undimmed despite his vintage. Apparently built from the ground up using hardware synths, Signs Under Test succeeds as Tejada doesn't feel the need to cater to any particular musical trend, instead relying on his tools and his talent to deliver a rich and rewarding listen.

Review: San Fran's unstoppable and enduring tech house craftsman John Tejada is also super reliable. His sound is well established, but he always does enough with each new release to embellish it a little further. Returning now to his home label of Kompakt, he refines his palette to silky melodies, fuzzy pads and crisp beats that are superbly pleasing for both your ears and your heels. 'Sheltered' is a particularly classy cut of deft tech minimalism, 'Spectral Progressions' expires ambient broken beats with lush pad work and 'Panacea' picks up the pace in scintillant fashion. This might be his best work in years.

  2. Question Mark (Adam Port mix) (6:51)
Review: Earlier this year, Berlin duo Terranova returned with their first tangible output for some five years, delivering their fifth studio LP Hotel D'Amour on the evergreen Kompakt imprint. The Cologne label extends the Terranova listening party, electing to see how the album's opening track "Question Mark" can be manipulated by fresh minds. Much like Terranova have been out of the spotlight for a while, Bulgarian 303 botherer KiNK has been a bit quiet of late, so the sight of him adorning the A Side with a typically ripe revision of the track featuring Thomas Haffding is a welcome one! It's a remix worthy of KiNK's reputation too, deftly incorporating the tinkling melodic elements as well as Haffding's delicate voice amidst a tough, undulating ride through rollercoaster percussion and thick waves of bass. German producer Adam Port - known for a killer edit of The Weeknd - provides an equally fine remix on the flip, opting for a tougher groove that can only be described as relentless in its energy.

Review: Kompakt have a knack for calling on their impressive pool of talent and pushing them in interesting conceptual directions. So it goes on this second volume of Velvet Desert Music, where the mysterious allure of arid climes meets with the slinky grooves of the 70s and 80s. It's a style the likes of Michael Mayer and Superpitcher can turn their hand to in style, and likewise the likes of Mount Obsidian do a stunning job capturing a dusty soundtrack atmosphere on "Ride". Look out for the jangling death funk march of Sascha Funke's "In Der Tat", a clear highlight.

Review: Designed as a kind of "anything-goes" alternative to Kompakt's "Ambient Pop" series, "Velvet Desert Music" was apparently inspired by the desire of its curator, Cologne stalwart Jorg Burger, to "create a distinct vibe and atmosphere". He certainly achieves that aim, offering up a mixture of previously unreleased tracks and mixes that evoke mental images of dusk-till-dawn road-trips across the American Midwest. Highlights are plentiful throughout, from the lilting Americana of Terrapin's "Cirrus Minor (The Black Frame Extract)" and the trippy, delay-laden downtempo headiness of Burger/Ink's "Memphisto", to the menacing dark-pop of the Fantastic Twins, the country-tinged swamp funk of Rebolledo & The Novotones' "Mountain Eagle (The Black Frame Desert Mix)" and the exotic, faintly foreboding slo-mo electronica of Sascha Funke and Cosmo Vitelli's "Botzaris".

Review: Around this time each year, Kompakt's latest Total compilation lands and reminds us that Michael Mayer's imprint is still at the top of its game. Predictably, this 17th edition of the annual two-disc trawl though recent label highlights is every bit as essential as its predecessors. Highlights come thick and fast from start to finish, and include - deep breath - the Pet Shop Boys-esque instrumental synth-pop of Thomas/Mayer's "25", the typically Teutonic techno stomp of T Raumschmiere's "Jaguar", the meandering ambient pop of Max Schollp's "The Dream", Kolsch's Boyz Noize-ish "PUSH" and the dense, percussion-heavy thrust of Patrice Baumel's heavyweight "Sorcery". Oh, and a particularly melodious contribution from Parisian legend Laurent Garnier.

This one is titled 'Cha Cha Club' and it is a dark and foggy club-ready cut that straddles the line between techno and electro. Over on the flip, Voigt hypnotises you into submission once again on the mysterious and understated afterhours cut 'Die Frau, Die Nach Deutz Ging'.
