Bass Ist Musik compiles highlights from the German producer's releases for the Cologne institution.
Köhnchke's sound has always been very much in line with that of Kompakt itself: slick, melodic club tracks with a healthy pop element, thanks in part to his own vocals. He was a mainstay of the Cologne institution for most the last decade, releasing four albums and more than a dozen EPs for them between 2001 and 2009. Bass Ist Musik is his first release on Kompakt in three years. It brings together 11 highlights from every stage of his catalog, from his early single "Jet" through his re-rub of Jürgen Paape's "So Weit Noch Nie" to selections from his most recent LP, Safe and Sound. It's available digitally and as a limited edition CD.
