On March 1st, 1993, Kompakt opened the blue doors on Gladbacher Stra√Ye 36 for the very first time and thus, a new record store was born. Two moves, a name change, almost exactly 500 publications and a staggering 20 years later, Kompakt is still here and stronger than ever. That's why throughout 2013, Kompakt will celebrate 20 years of Kompakt in all shapes and colors, including this exciting jubilee 2CD release jam-packed with floor favorites, towering chart-toppers and secret weapons from the rich history of one of Germany's most-loved labels. Carefully pulled from Kompakt's extensive archives, this first entry in the 20 Jahre Kompakt Kollektion series is in no way meant to be a "best of": that would indeed be a task larger than life. Rather than just going through the motions and assembling sales numbers, Kompakt took a different road, simply compiling their proudest moments instead, classic records that defined their sound today. The label considers each track in this selection an electronic masterpiece, regardless of whether it reached out for the floor like Justus K√∂hncke's "After 909" or catered to the home-listening crowd like Pluxus' "Transient." The massive bangers included in Kollektion 1 range from Matias Aguayo's unmistakable bass slinger "Walter Neff" to the highly emotional ravecore of Rex The Dog's "Prototype," dropping in on Voigt & Voigt's timeless anthem "Vision 03" or Lawrence's brilliant remix of Superpitcher's legendary "Happiness." You'll hear rare goodies and underground hits such as Mayer/Voigt's "Transparenza" or Heiko Voss' "I Think About You" alongside long-standing contributors like The Field, SCSI-9, Kaito and many, many more, making for an expertly-crafted listening experience and an enticing trip to the past. Other artists include: DJ Koze, Dorau/K√∂hncke, Geiger, Leandro Fresco, Michael Mayer, Wighnomy Bros., Dettinger, Jonas Bering, Gus Gus, Thomas Fehlmann, Gui Boratto, John Tejada, Partial Arts and The Rice Twins.
