Coma+DJ Koze+Kohncke+The Field

Kompakt TOTAL 10
We follow a lot of Kompakt on the blog, they actually have been a big influence on the Moodgadget label as in having a Pop Ambient compilation series, Michael Mayer’s IMMER mix series and the classic TOTAL series. I picked 4 tracks that I think really stand out for me while giving it a good listen. This Coma track been perfect for these middle of the night insomnia sessions i’ve been having, a ton of quiet drives that swell while you’re finally dozing off sounds lovely to me.

I’ve been trying to think of another album that samples tennis and nothing comes to mind besides this new DJ Koze track, kind of reminds of something Philip Sherburne would use in a mix to separate some 90′s shoegaze and the most recent Villalobos 12″.

Justus Köhncke should be in Sebastian Tellier’s position and greeting you at American Apparel with 7 inch vinyl and One Size see-thru tee shirts, Justus has been doing the sexy playful and distant slow dance music since I can remember. Dirk Leyers of Closer Musik does an outstanding edit here by taking the original to a 10 min mark.

Thomas Fehlmann of The Orb doesn’t receive enough credit for his work under his birth name, the man did a crazy record with Dabrye, a gorgeous album called Honig Pump, and now adds another class remix to his catalog for The Field.

Coma – Sum

DJ Koze – 40 Love

The Field – The More I Do (Thomas Fehlmann Mix)

Justus Köhncke – (It´s Gonna Be) Alright (Dirk Leyers Remix)

i didn’t really follow kompakt releases until following your posts here (and a big thanks for sharing/introducing), and while i’ve found many of them as a whole unsatisfying, there are some incredible gems on the total & pop comps.

for instance, the koze “Nymphe Und Schaefer” track is amazing and i thought fehlman’s “Camilla” track was also very good.

but….without a doubt the “Frieden” joint by voigt/burger…man, h-o-l-y shit! that tune has a permanent place in my personal pantheon of musical wonderment.

Take a look (or listen) to the song Ping Pong by Computerjockeys that samples table tennis sounds and has some nice asian touch at the 1:51 mark.
