Boomkat Product Review:
The first release on Kompakt’s new Pop label is a re-issue of a track that first came out on Traum last year and featured on the mighty “Friends” mix CD from Triple R, Oxtongue’s “Delight”. The track certainly lives up to its name, it became an office summer favourite with it’s vocodered voice uttering words in a sing song way that warms the heart, and the instruments doing that thing which makes Kompakt stand apart from the rest, recalling the highlight moments from the Little Computer People album, all rinsed through house style, with charm, panache and ultimate poise. Backed by a Benjamin Diamond mix which reduces the track to an acoustic arrangement with Peter Hook bass and real vocals, plus the Voigt brothers get a hand in and throw subtle but heavy bass keys and a slightly darker synth line which adds their character to the track. A creep toward the summer sound of Kompakt, get it on the decks at your barbeque for sunny house action, nice.
