Cologne's Justus Köhncke cuts a comparatively understated figure within Kompakt's sizeable roster. By no means prolific, but steadily consistent, the German is best known for the label-defining anthem "2 After 909," with classics such as "Advance," "Yacht" and "Timecode" also to his name.
First released in 2004, Kompakt are now repackaging the original version of "Timecode" alongside two remixes from the self-proclaimed hip-house originator Tyree Cooper and Studio Bauhaus member Axel Boman. Steeping his buoyant interpretation in Windy City nostalgia, Cooper takes the original's bassline down several notches, before installing a deep assembly of signature chords and a circling patter of hand percussion. While the American's assured version is perhaps a little safe, Boman crafts an altogether more abstract work that's propelled by low-end groove and hazy delays.
