The label's annual showcase includes core label artists Voigt & Voigt, Justus Köhncke and Gui Boratto.
The label takes stock of the annual Total series in the press release. "In the day and age of streaming playlists and the omnipresence of freely available mixes, what's the use of a label compilation?" it reads. "The answer is simple: labels still serve as a dearly needed filter mechanism in this tsunami of music we're facing every day... They're like your favorite restaurant around the corner... Kompakt has become such a place for generations of fans and artists alike. And the Total compilation series serves as its menu: always changing but instantly recognizable."
This year's menu includes music from each of the Cologne label's founders—Tobias Thomas and Michael Mayer collaborate on a track, as do Wolfgang and Reinhard Voigt. Jörg Burger and Jürgen Paape also contribute a song each. Kompakt mainstays like Patrice Bäumel, Kölsch and Gui Boratto feature, as do Sascha Funke and Justus Kohncke, the latter providing a Patrick Cowley tribute called "Mindless Sex Track."
Total 19 will be available as a 22-track double-CD edition or an eight-track double-vinyl set.
