Starting this month, the Cologne-based outfit will sell limited edition records exclusively through their website.
Kompakt have unveiled plans for a new section of their online shop, entitled Kompakt.fm Exklusiv, which will act as the sole source for new limited edition releases and reissues.
The first batch of releases will introduce three new Kompakt labels: RAR, Kompakt Klassiks and Protest. RAR's first EP features reworks of Gus Gus and Jurgen Paape by Ada, Mugwump and Michael Mayer, while Kompakt Klassiks kicks off with Las Vegas 2010, a reissue of Jorg Burger and Wolfgang Voigt's 1998 full-length, previously available on Matador. Protest is a new sub-label of Profan, Voigt's recently revived experimental imprint, and promises idiosyncratic "music of tomorrow." Considering its first 12-inch is named after 19th century composers Robert Schumann and Clara Wieck, one can only expect classical-electronic musings ala Gas or Sog.
The new platform will also release Freiland Geduld, an extraction from Voigt's recent Freiland Klaviermusik complete with a remix by DJ Koze. The EP will be signed, hand-painted, and limited to 175 copies. You can also expect a teaser EP for the upcoming Total 11 compilation, featuring tracks by Maxime Dangles and Matias Aguayo.
