Review of Kompakt 'Total 14'

20 August 2014 - - - The DJ List


The ever powerful label Kompakt has returned from it's sabbatical of doing it's compilation series and has released 'Total 14'. With it's ever growing list of amazing releases and artists compiled over last year this is a release that's not to be missed. With established artists like KOLSCH, MACEO PLEX, BLOND:ISH, SUPERPITCHER, COMA, GUI BORATTO, and DJ TENNIS to up and coming producers like DAUWD, DAVE DK, SASCHIENNE, DAMH, THE FIELD, and SEBASTIAN BOUCHET.

The first track starts off with the very beautifully crafted and melodic track by Dauwd that helps establish the mood which leads to COMA's stringy melodic track “Atlantis”. Next is a spacey track by Gui Boratto which is complimented well by Kolsch's “Cassiopeia”.

You'll find a variety of different tracks in the 'Total 14' that captures every mood of human emotion. You get desert vibes in “Disko 90” and Blond:ish's “Wunderkammer” to Electronica sounding tracks by WEVAL, The Field, and Partial Art's blend electronica beats with dark minimalistic feel of “Taifa” that sucks you into the song. There's even an happy go lucky carnival like sound from JURGEN PAAPE's “Heuriger”.

There's something for everyone when it comes to 'Total 14'. Whether it's big room hits, to chill vibes, and slow building tracks. There's nothing but quality for this great compilation and worth buying and supporting on Beatport .
