Justus Kühncke Doppelleben
- Words: Doug Morton
- Label: Kompakt
Having established himself as the quintessential pop-techno icon of the Kompakt camp, Köhncke unzips his latest full-length effort. Doppelleben (translation: "double life") is a veritable smorgasbord of discolicious 4/4 bumpery, metro-sensual symphonics, and acoustified ballads, all of which sizzle with Kohncke‘s uncanny blend of pop sensibility and digital synthetics. By now, any true fan of Kompakt kulture has come to terms with Köhncke‘s big-hearted (German) vocals, but those less inclined to sing along with the accompanying lyric sheet can still lose themselves in the meticulously-programmed instrumental half of the album.
