Kompakt Total 14 [coll] – [Kompakt Schallplatten]

Total14

 

Kompakt skipped 2013 with their total releases, hence no Total 13 so this 14th release came out 2014. It’s a mixture of proven dandy techno content and experimental beat fun, of which the vocal pop techno side is unfortunately too much present with its lyrical content and formulas and the known Kompakt sound is there with artist tracks from Maceo Plex, Blond:ish and Superpitcher. However, Sebastian Bouchet seems to be unable to make boring tracks, Thomas Fehlman pushes tribal techno to new directions, The Modernist sounds like UK funky techno and John Tejada’s remix of the Field track is elegant. And who knew that Voigt & Voigt would reinvent sixties surf pop. Pick and choose from the 20 tracks as each one has it’s own charm.
