Kompakt‘s 20th birthday festivities continue to rumble on.

Wolfgang Voigt and Michael Mayer’s label has come a long way since its humble beginnings in Cologne’s Delirium record store in 1993. They’ve already marked the distance with Kompakt 20 Jahre Kollektion – a 25-track set featuring classic material from the likes of Justus Köhncke, Matias Aguayo, and DJ Koze – and a second compilation is now on the way.

As per its predecessor, Kollektion 2 will assemble a selection of key Kompakt releases from the last twenty years. Old hands include Closer Musik, Lawrence, Jürgren Paape and Reinhard Voigt; Walls and Kölsch are among the younger pups.  Kollektion 2 is due on August 19 – check the tracklist below.

In another recent bit of birthday gift-giving, Kompakt invited composer Gregor Schwellenbach to reimagine material from the label vaults; head here for a track-by-track runthrough of the project.
