2013 seems to be a year of big birthday parties. While French label Ed Banger Records is doing 10 Years Anniversary World Tour, I would rather go to Cologne and party with Michael Mayer and his mates. The reason they are celebrating is really significant – Kompakt, one of the most important techno labels, has just turned twenty!
And do not worry if you cannot make it to Germany this year. There is a great compilation on two CDs that includes some finest beats that have been released on Kompakt throughout the whole 20-year period. You will find tracks from Matias Aguayo, The Field, Gus Gus, DJ Koze, Gui Boratto and others. Pretty inviting, right?
To buy go here.
