Nineteen years on since the inaugural delivery of their Total compilation series, Cologne’s flagship record label Kompakt return with ‘Total 18‘, in time for their 25th anniversary. The double-CD, LP and digital release featuring 25 cuts from Jürgen Paape, Sonns, Aaron Ahrends, Terranova, John Tejada, Vermont, Rex The Dog, Gui Boratto, T.Raumschmiere, Marc Romboy and many more.
Collating cuts taken from this year’s catalogue – supplemented with exclusives, ‘Total 18‘ captures a wide-angle vision of the label’s current portfolio, including both up-and-comers and veterans in top form, inviting the listener to flick through a family album of sorts.
“It has become such a nice tradition to put together Total compilations. It feels a lot like going through one’s photos at the end of the year. Memories come back to mind from moments when a particular track made its first impression on me or how the same track would become a highlight in my DJ sets at some point. Each track has a story to tell. Apart from the obvious big tunes, Total also bears room for the sleeper hits, those tracks that were criminally overlooked. With a bunch of new exclusive contributions thrown in the mix there’s plenty to discover or rediscover. Kompakt’s annual yearbook seen through my eyes for your ears and pleasure.” – Michael Mayer
