Caribou, Apparat and Matthew Dear will guest on the German producer's next album.
The album arrives eight years after his last full length, Kosi Comes Around, which was released in 2005 on Kompakt. Since then Koze, real name Stefan Kozalla, has busied himself with high profile remixes for the likes of Battles, Caribou and Matthew Herbert, as well as solo EPs for Philpot and Circus Company.
Touted in a press release as "Koze’s Sgt. Pepper," Amygdala will see release on the German artist's own Pampa label, which he launched with Marcus Fink in 2009. The collaboration-heavy album features guest appearances from Caribou (on the memorably titled opener "Track ID Anyone"), Apparat, Matthew Dear, Dirk Von Lowtzow, Ada, Milosh and Tomerle & Maiko. The album also includes a remake of German singer Hildegard Knef's 1975 track "Ich Schreib’ Dir Ein Buch" (Koze has previously remixed another Knef song, "Ich liebe Euch.")
