Details of the next compilation in the long-running series have been announced.
The CD series has been an annual staple of the Cologne label's output for the past 12 years. Pop Ambient 2014 features a few regulars to the series—Fehlmann, The Field and Wolfgang Voigt—while Ulf Lohmann returns after a six-year absence to provide the compilation's opening and closing track. There's a "Triola" mix of The Bionaut's 1992 favourite "Aquamarine" and a track from Cologne Tape, a live project featuring Ada and The Field among others. Earlier this year we went deep on the history of Kompakt to celebrate its 20th anniversary—check it out here if you missed it first time round.
