- The Orb, Mikkel Metal and Wolfgang Voigt all feature on the next edition of the annual compilation, out in November.
Kompakt will release Pop Ambient 2016 on November 13th.
The yearly series has been running since 2001, defining the Cologne label's accessible and melodic take on ambient music. This latest edition features regulars like Wolfgang Voigt and Jens-Uwe Beyer, alongside The Orb and Mikkel Metal. SCSI-9's Anton Kubikov also features, plus experimental musician Stephan Mathieu and Leandro Fresco, who makes two appearances (one original track and a remix of Dave DK). The Wolfgang Voigt contribution is actually a megamix of his "Rückverzauberung" series done by Thore Pfeiffer, reimagining the entire concept as "one sweeping cut," according to the label. That track appears only on the CD and digital versions of the album.
