Kompakt label: Recommendations?
« on: November 07, 2012, 01:57:05 PM »
I have arrived "late" to the Kompakt Germany label (and related labels) party.  I only have a few of them right now:

Loops of Your Heart-And Never Ending Nights (excellent!)
Mohn
Pop Ambient 2012

What are the essentials I should seek out (preferably still available on CD)?  Thanks for any info.!!

Send me a PM and I will send you a list. I have about 30.The Kompakt catalogue is huge. From hard techno to minimal house to ambient. Most of it much the same. The early stuff is the best.

Agreed. Mostly went to shit around 2008. Big ups to anything by Thomas Fehlmann, The Field, The Rice Twins, Hug, early M.Mayer. And of course the Pop Ambient series.
