iTunes Review

Kompakt, the Cologne, Germany-based techno label, is well known for its Total compilation series. 2009’s Total 10, the tenth edition, flows from beginning to end, and as usual there are some exciting standouts. The opener, “40 Love,” starts with the intriguing sounds and rhythms of a tennis match, before it ever-so-gradually segues into a low-key dance groove, only to eventually return to the match. Produced by the Pet Shop Boys, Sam Taylor-Wood’s “I’m In Love with a German Film Star” has room for a finely contoured chorus and hazy atmospherics in Gui Boratto’s mix. A few tracks later, Boratto strikes again with the four-on-the-floor-driven “No Turning Back,” while Matias Aguayo’s “Walter Neff” livens things up with handclaps, a funky beat, and some wonderfully slack vocals. Burger/Voigt’s “Wand aus Klang” brings a little old-school Krautrock spirit to 21st-century dance music, and Total 10 closes with Pachanga Boys’ “Fiesta Forever,” a collaboration between Superpitcher’s Aksel Schaufler and Mauricio Rebolledo. The song is closer to folk music than techno, but one doesn’t turn to Kompakt for the obvious.

Best I've heard in a long time. It's my new favorite. Where did Kompakt come from? THEY'RE GOOD!

Best song on here is

"No Turning Back". Damn that is some good beats.

um

i listened to all the 30 second clips from this cd and wasnt impressed with any of the tracks except "No Turning Back" so thats the only one i bought. i was pleased with that purchase. the song is good. 30 second clips just wernt enough for me to get a good listen to the other songs. maybe there are other good songs on this cd and i just couldnt tell from the clips. the song really has to have a catchy beat for me to make a purchase. maybe some day the record companys will let us listen to 1 minute clips of the songs. then we could really get a good feel for the song. i think i would buy a lot more music if i could listen to that much of the song.
