Cologone outpost Kompakt is looking to quickly get the ball rolling in the fast-approaching new year, with a fresh collection of remixes for The Field's Cupid's Head LP and a new 12" from John Tejada set to drop in early 2014.
First off, the forthcoming Cupid's Head Remixes I EP will gather reworks of the recent album's title track from Vatican Shadow, Ostgut Ton affiliates Barker & Baumecker, and LA producer Sonns. The three-track effort is set to see a limited 12" release on January 20, following shortly behind Kompakt's limited vinyl release of "Cupid's Head" remixes from label co-owner Wolfgang Voigt under his renowned ambient guise, Gas. (Clips of Gas' remixes can be heard here.)
Secondly, prolific LA techno veteran John Tejada will return to the Kompakt fold with the two-track We Can Pretend 12" on January 13 of next year. The record is described as a "somnambulistic two-tracker that delivers more bang for the buck, but also knows its way around the pressure-sensitive areas of the dancefloor." The artwork and tracklists for both forthcoming Kompakt releases are included below.
