Triola+Sybarite+Fridge+Andrew Thomas

Posted by Jakub

I spent a ton of time last night with some of the pop ambient series on Kompakt but the early years which got me into the old Mille Plateaux catalog and other Kompakt ambient albums as well. So here are a few songs that made the early 2000’s really enjoyable, makes me think about close friends designing minimal futuristic flyers and teaching myself Adobe Photoshop late at night. I don’t know if can ever relive that again, you know being excited about Wallpaper magazine, minimal glitchy websites like seeing for the first time, and mod backpacks, way to go 2001!

Triola – Leuchtturm


Sybarite – Secropia


Fridge – Cut Up Piano And Xylophone


Andrew Thomas – Fearsome Jewel 3

impressive how similar people can feel and think about the things through similar interests. triola’ song fits exactly to your described moment. btw.: there is a good “leuchtturm-remix” by wighnomy brothers (polarzipper-rmx).

Really enjoyed these … thanks! Sunrise Catalonia 714am by Engine 7 has been one of those nostalgic feeling tracks on repeat for me lately.

Some of my favourite music ever has appeared on the Pop Ambient compilations. Pop Ambient 2003 being one of my favourite albums. I can’t describe the feelings these albums invoke in me. Serene, calm, beauty. Great post Jakub. :)

Thanks for the post, makes me want to rewind even further to the Burger/Ink [las vegas] album. And I don’t believe we’ll ever be able to bring back ‘those years’ in electronic music… we’ll just have to settle for the pains of being veterans.
