20 years of Kompakt - Compilation

On March 1st, 1993, Kompakt opened the blue doors on Gladbacher Straße 36 for the very first time and thus, a new record store was born. Two moves, a name change, almost exactly 500 publications and a staggering 20 years later, Kompakt is still here and stronger than ever. That’s why throughout 2013, they will celebrate “20 YEARS OF KOMPAKT” in all shapes and colors, including this exciting jubilee 2-CD release jam-packed with floor favorites, towering chart-toppers and secret weapons from the rich history of one of Germany’s most-loved labels! A must have for all electronic music lovers.



Carefully pulled from Kompakt’s extensive archives, this first entry in the “20 jahre Kompakt Kollektion” series is in no way meant to be a “Best of“: that would indeed be a task larger than life. Rather than just going through the motions and assembling sales numbers, we took a different road, simply compiling our proudest moments instead, classic records that defined our sound today. We consider each track in this selection an electronic masterpiece, regardless of whether it reached out for the floor like Justus Kohncke’s “After 909” or catered to the home listening crowd like Pluxus’ “Transient”.

The massive bangers included in “Kollektion 1” range from Matias Aguayo’s unmistakable bass slinger “Walter Neff to the highly emotional Ravecore of Rex the Dog’s “Prototype”, dropping in on Voigt and Voigt’s timeless anthem “Vision 03” or Lawrence’s brilliant remix of Superpticher’s legendary “Happiness”. You’ll hear rare goodies and underground hits such as Mayer/Voigt’s “Transparenza” or Heiko Voss’ “I think about you” alongside long-standing contributors like The Field, SCSI-9, Kaito and many, many more, making for an expertly crafted listening experience and an enticing trip to the past. All visitors, this way please!

Just in time for Kompakt’s 20th anniversary year, “20 jahre Kompakt Kollektion” invites you on a trip to the label’s rich past, including floor favorites, secret weapons and genre-defining masterpieces. Coming as a jam-packed 2CD release, this versatile collection of Kompakt classics includes tracks from Michael Mayer, Justus Kohncke, Voigt and Voigt, Superpitcher, Gui Boratto, DJ Koze and many, many more.
