kompakt artists remixing kompakt! 21 new, exclusive tracks. "approaching the magic number 100, we were aware of the fact that we had to come up with a special jubilee edition. and actually, there were two reasons for choosing this format: on the one hand, we didn't want to release just another compilation, but rather make a well thought-out concept record. on the other hand, at times when music is undergoing radical changes, we wanted to seize the opportunity to not only celebrate the label, but also a sustainable vision of techno music. as regards content, the concept was rather easy: each participating kompakt artist was asked to choose one title of the previous 99 kompakt releases and make a remix. the result: 21 amazing, brilliant, sometimes unexpected, but always very inventive tracks, ranging between cosmic, rattling tunes and primetime sawing sounds. so far, this is the most encyclopedic overview of kompakt's tradition of constantly re-defining the limits of techno music. apart from these internal formalities, it is more important for us to mention the record's prospective rather than its retrospective view. it is 2004, i.e. 15 years of techno music. techno is not a new anymore, but it still is the most up-to-date, thrilling, unpredictable, exciting and best of all music styles on this planet. wir machen weiter (->we won't stop!).
