Closer Musik: 1,2,3, No Gravity

Posted by Jakub

Kompakt 2
One of the most influential electronic labels since i started working in the industry has been Kompakt out of Cologne, Germany. Its owned by a favorite musician of mine Wolfgang Voigt aka Gas, who has some of the most unbelievable ambient records on Mille Plateaux in the mid 90’s. 1,2,3, No Gravity was always a great vinyl to throw on during the beginning of a dj set just because it had this feel to it that everybody might actually know it or wanna know it once the distant vocal came in. Also, The cover art is part of a compilation series that comes out every year, i think Kompakt is on Total 8 now, definitely worth looking into especially their other compilation series “Pop Ambient” which is also yearly. For the non techno fans, i promise to keep the techno to a minimum, if i post techno its mostly because of the melodies usually.

Traum → Trappez : another very good deep druggy sound from Cologne.
Received Past is Prologue. Nice!

Traum Schallplatten was my favorite label in early 2000 but it has slipped off to less melody and more minimal dance

Jakub, this is great man. I listened to this tune yesterday when you posted and loved it…thought about it non-stop over night and now I’m just playing it over and over again. Gotta track down more from this dude.
