Immer, the Kompakt sub-label sees its fourth title today. It includes two tracks that many will be thrilled to have back on vinyl, be sure to check it out! Hot on the heels of their debut for Visionquest, Benoit & Sergio lend their production skills to Spectral Sound with “Let Me Count The Ways.”

Film score composer Ryuichi Sakamoto and music pioneer Carsten Nicolai have come together to bring you “Summvs”, a mellow concoction of piano and rich pads on Raster Noton. Mikkel Metal returns to Echocord Colour with another deep techno number, and Resoe appears on the A side with something a little heavier.

“The Kenya Sessions”, produced by Sven Kacirek back in February was an album that combined Sven’s programming with live samples recorded in Kenya. It turned out beautifully and returns today with a remix package from Lawrence & Taprikk Sweezee. For those of you craving something a little more intense, Expander and Tadeo have a techno EP just for you out today on Soniculture.

We are excited to announce that our good friend and longtime member of Kompakt, Jennifer Cardini launches her own label! Stemming from her eight year residency at Rex Club Paris, Correspondant is proud to welcome Nhar for its first pressing. “Thelema” is a two track EP with a remix from Plein Soleil aka Chloe and Krikor.

We would like to thank all of those who supported the Kompakt Benefit Compilation For Japan. We are sending over more than €7,000 to the Red Cross Society of Japan! Read the details here. Also, preview Matias Aguayo’s first release with Kompakt since “AyAyAy”. “I Don’t Smoke” will be available as of June 3rd right here at Kompakt.fm. Have a great weekend!
