The next edition of the celebrated series features new tracks from Superpitcher, The Field, bvdub, Wolfgang Voigt and more.
Kompakt will release Pop Ambient 2012 in January.
The 11th edition of the celebrated compilation series continues to explore the beatless side of electronic music. Many of Kompakt's old guard appear on the album, including Superpitcher, who in his 12-year tenure on the Cologne label has never appeared on Pop Ambient. Kompakt co-founder Wolfgang Voigt appears twice, once as himself and once in Mohn, his new "ambient-grunge-downbeat project" with one of his usual partners in crime, Jörg Burger (Burger also contributes a track as Triola). bvdub, an American ambient artist based in China and latter-day Pop Ambient favorite, makes the cut for the third year in a row. Kompakt darling Axel Willner, AKA The Field, closes the release with "Riding the Bikes," a track from his alter-ego Loops Of Your Heart.
