Kompakt Total 15
LP 
Price: $24.79

Product Notes

Limited double 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing. The Total compilation series returns in 2015 for its 15th installment, with an ample array of tunes from revered Kompakt mainstays like Wassermann aka Wolfgang Voigt, Superpitcher, Jurgen Paape, Michael Mayer, and more - yet, the overall stance and content of Total 15 feels just as fresh, thrilling, and playful as back in 1999, when the first Total hit. This might have to do with the sheer talent and unabated creative drive obvious in the work of both up-and-coming and seasoned producers. For Total 15, the return of Wolfgang Voigt's concept rave alter ego Wassermann is certainly one of the biggest showstoppers; his ‘Eisen Mein Herz’ is an instant leftfield classic, coupling deconstructed text excerpts from Thomas Mann's 1954 novel Confessions of Felix Krull with a vintage beat 'n' bass combo in all its raucous glory. Jurgen Paape lifts the veil on his sonic musings with the smart futurism of ‘Manipuri’, followed by Michael Mayer's pop concrete jewel ‘Humm’ and Superpitcher's delirious flute stomper ‘Freiherr’. Voigt & Voigt's ‘Akira’ originally stems from the duo's ground-breaking 2012 full-length Die Zauberhafte Welt Der Anderen: the Reeperbahn Mix (vinyl only) takes the mantra-like source material and infuses it with a decidedly grainy feel - a funky sound-collage of field recordings, accordion, and beats. Jorg Burger aka The Modernist has the honor of concluding the 2015 installment of Total with ‘Sacrosanct’, a cut from his The Black Frame moniker and proof of his indie pop sensibilities and his impressive skill set when it comes to unadulterated songwriting.
