(2001-06-02) KOMPAKT

Société des arts technologiques [SAT]


Kompakt, Profan, Auftrieb, Studio 1, NTA and Freiland are just some of the renowned labels hailing from a specific address on a street in Cologne. At this address, you'll find the Kompakt store, a distribution unit, recording studios and a record store. Behind this address, a man: Wolfgang Voigt, and his crew, comprised mostly of extremely talented musicians who are creating an experimental pop-techno phenomenon. Although the overall style of the main label is fairly recognizable, its composers are a stylishly versatile bunch. Thus, Kompakt's last two releases played on an 80's front, and their direction is ever-shifting. On one hand, they recklessly readapt the sounds of the 80's with an abrasive coat of modern lacquer, while on the other hand they reproduce the ambient German music of the 1970's with finesse and intelligence. By inviting us into the most evolutionary clique of contemporary music, Kompakt will raise our consciousness of a truly dynamic form of electronic music. This will be KOMPAKT's first appearance as a label in North America.
