Boards Of Canada, Nils Frahm and James Holden all appear on Väth's "quiet listening compilation."
Previous editions of Coming Home have been overseen by Nightmares On Wax, DJ Hell, Jazzanova and Nouvelle Vague. In keeping with the theme of the series, the 14-track selection explores the kind of music Väth listens to at home. "My influences have always been diverse and unpredictable," says Väth in a Facebook post. "And that is unmistakably the case on this quiet listening compilation."
Väth's selections include a number of synth explorers (James Holden, Boards of Canada, Oneohtrix Point Never), breakthrough artists from the past couple of years (Nils Frahm, Axel Boman) and some underground house favourites (Horror Inc., Portable).
"I actually intended to present only my current fave songs—without any particular dramaturgy," he says. "But even so, there's a musical arc of suspense to what came together in the end." Coming Home is currently available for preorder at iTunes. It'll also be released on CD.
