Published Jan 10, 2013Later this month, beloved German electronic label Kompakt will, like clockwork, issue the latest in its Pop Ambient series. It's not a normal year for the label, however, as the imprint will be celebrating its 20th year in existence. With that in mind, it has outlined a series of other exciting plans for 2013.
In a press release, the label owners explained that they plan on celebrating 20 years of Kompakt in myriad ways this year, including "an anniversary bonanza tour" throughout Europe, with pop-up shops and other exciting events to offer.
While that's probably enticing for people who live overseas, we lonely Canadians will also be able to get in on the fun, as the label has also hinted at a documentary about the rise of the far-reaching label, along with a series of reissues and even a fanzine about the history of the company.
So far, that's all we know, but there are also new albums on the horizon from the likes of the Field, Gui Boratto, Justus Köhncke and Coma, so we can expect many good things to come from Kompakt this year.
