Kompakt, the label for electronic big whigs like SuperMayer, SuperPitcher, and my personal favorite, Gui Boratto, has just released their 9th mix compilation titled Total 9. The tracks on this album seem to bit slower than some of their past compilations. Too slow for the big dance floors. Why expect that in the first place? Kompakt always give off a darker vibe than other popular labels. But, isn’t that what separates them from the more dance floor friendly labels, such as, Ed Banger and Kitsune. Whether  Kompakt is better than the other two? That depends on what you are judging them on. If it is by the quality of their most recent mix compilations, then, Kompakt is clearly the winner. So, if you’re looking for an album to chill out to, this is it. Everyone needs some good night music to crash to every now and then. Peace & Beats

Maxime Dangles – Tulipa [Kompakt] Zshare

Great song. I used to listen to it when his EP was released earlier this year. Along with his other song “Firewire.”

 RATING: 4 STARS

 

Matias Aguayo – Minimal (DJ Koze Remix) [Kompakt] Zshare

The DJ Koze version of “Minimal” isn’t on Kompakt’s Total 9 but it is a stellar remix and I could easily see it becoming huge on the Indie dancefloors across the globe. Check it out. If you don’t like it I will be amazed. The vocals are insanely catchy.

 RATING: 5 STARS

Gui Boratto is an excellent minimal, house and techno composer from Brazil. Signed to the Kompakt label with other talented acts like Superpitcher and Michael Mayer; this is one of the labels releases. Gui Boratto’s “Chromophobia” is not a minimal album like you probably would expect from German label. The tempo is always changing in the album. You got your minimal tracks like “Gate 7” and “The Blessing.” You also have “Beautiful Life” which has a house vibe to it. Finally, you have a nice electronica track titled “Xilo” and the standout techno track “Shebang” to really get your head nodding.
