This week Electronic Beats On Air joined in with the 20th birthday celebrations of record store, label, distributor and all round Cologne legend Kompakt Records. To time in with the Kompakt Pop-Up Store which settles into its seven day residency at the Ableton headquarters in Prenzlauer Berg, we roped in the key players to reflect on the entity’s legacy and look to the future. Wolfgang Voigt, Sascha Funke, Julienne Dessange (introducing their new project Saschienne), Edition Terranova, Ableton artist manager Olaf Bohn and Electronic Beats’ Editor-in-Chief Max Dax all bundled into the FluxFM studio to record last night’s show.
Fresh from the airwaves, today’s Mix of the Day features both parts of the program: the first hour’s discussion (in German) and the accompanying mix from Kompakt’s own Michael Mayer who has hooked up with a live recording of his set at 10 Days Off in Ghent. It’s the whole unedited mix which they couldn’t play on the radio, so make sure you’ve got a spare three hours. There’s no tracklist but feel free to join the dots.
