Kompakt Celebrates 10 Years of Pop Ambient
- Words: Patric Fallon
Longstanding German techno imprint Kompakt is releasing Pop Ambient 2010, the tenth release in their annual compilation series of lush and relatively formless music, this January. The 13-track release, curated by label head Wolfgang Voigt, is purported to be "a defining moment for the series—a change in pace but a familiar face for those that have been yearning for our annual remedy," and features both new and previously released tracks from the likes of The Orb, Popnoname, and recent XLR8R-featured artist DJ Koze. Fans can get their hands on the tastemaking compilation when it hits retailers January 18. Check out the artwork and tracklist below.
