Kompakt Japan 01

It started in a record shop in Cologne, and went on to become one of the most important forces in German electronic music during the 2000s. Now Kompakt is finally getting a party of its own here in Tokyo. Home to the likes of The Field, Gui Boratto and Superpitcher, Kompakt has helped popularise a warm, emotive brand of techno that was briefly dubbed 'trendy trance'. It's a style that's embraced by label co-owner Michael Mayer, who's hitting town to star as guest of honour at this inaugural party. There'll also be a live set by Kompakt family member Kaito a.k.a. Hiroshi Watanabe, plus DJ turns by Moodman and Shinya Okamoto.
