INFO:
We’ve got awesome feedback, amazing quotes for Future Sounds Of Kraut Vol. 1, very good sales, too, so here is Vol. 2:
17 modern krauty electronic tracks (9 of them exclusive) inspired by Kraftwerk, Can, Neu!, Cluster, Harmonia, Klaus Schulze and many others. Curated and compiled by Compost artist Fred und Luna. The collage on the cover – like on Vol.1 – was exclusively made by the fantastic artist Norika Nienstedt from Kraut metropolis Düsseldorf.
Future sounds of Kraut, what’s it all about? Maybe Volume 2 will bring it to light for you…

After the immense success of Volume 1 a follow-up volume was soon started, tying in stylistically with its predecessor and furthermore ‒ as this is one basic principle of the series ‒ expanding the musical spectrum by adding new krauty elements step by step. So now, besides stylistic followings to Volume 1, you will hear some more club oriented and experimental tracks. Feel free to listen and get krautified!

About the artists:

Sankt Otten
Sankt Otten live in the German city of Osnabrück. The duo, represented by Stephan Otten and Oliver Klemm, has been producing electronic instrumental music since 1999 and cites the Berlin School, Krautrock, Ambient and Trip-Hop as their major influences. They were musically supported by Kraut legends Jaki Liebezeit, Harald Großkopf and Ulrich Schnauss. “Angekommen in der letzten Reihe” is a perfect combination of old and modern and a wonderful example of Sankt Otten’s preference for unusual and funny song titles.

formAnt B
About a decade ago Frank Husemann (guitar, synths, organ) and Sunny Vollherbst (synths, organ, drums, step sequencers), owners of famous Synthesizer Studio Hamburg, have formed the Electro/Kraut project formAnt B. The krautophonic “Kater” was originally released on their album “Tiere” in 2014 and edited especially for this compilation.

Roman Flügel
The well-known German producer, DJ and live act is an active member of the international electronic music scene since the early 1990s, exploring many different styles like Electro, House, Techno, Ambient/IDM. Kraut and Leftfield Music. Listening to “Rules”, released in 2022, feels, as Roman describes it, like brushing your teeth after an extended feast. One krautospheric and at the same time playful musical piece for special dancefloor hours.

I:Cube
Nicolas Chaix aka I:Cube is one of the most famous French DJs and electronic music producers of the past decades. Paris based, he first gained limelight on Paris’ underground dance scene in the 1990s. „Basso“ was especially composed and recorded for this compilation and gives an impression of Nicolas’ idea of a futuristic, repetitive Kraut song with a French touch.

Minami Deutsch
Minami Deutsch, formed in 2014, currently are Kyotaro Miula, Keita Ise, Kosei Terunuma and Taku Idemoto from Tokyo. All band members are self-professed “repetition freaks” who heavily listen to minimal techno. And, as to be heard on “Your Pulse”, to pulsating, Düsseldorfish Krautmotor Sound. This breathless track was released in 2022 on their third album “Fortune Goodies”.

Kosmischer Läufer
In East Germany, way back in the early 1970s, Martin Zeichnete (Kosmischer Läufer) worked as a sound editor for DEFA (Deutsche Film AG). Like many young East Germans of the time he would listen furtively to West German radio at night and became infatuated with Kosmische Musik and Krautrock. “Spargelspiegel” was written back in 1982. Hitherto unreleased it was one of the songs Martin recorded for himself when he had some free time in the studio. He was planning to use it as part of his ‘Jahre der ruhigen Sonne” project but it fell by the wayside. Luckily it is now available exclusively on this compilation.

Schlammpeitziger
Schlammpeitziger is the alias of musician, illustrator and performance artist Jo Zimmermann. He has been an integral figure in the evolving sound of Cologne since 1992, releasing his surrealistic lo-fi krautronica on imprints such as A-Musik, Pingipung, Sonig and Bureau B. The miraculous “Runzreich” is the most experimental and far out track on this album and was written and recorded especially for the Future Sounds Of Kraut series.

Musik muß frei sein.” – Dr. Motte
