Various Artists – Future Sounds Of Kraut Vol. 2 (Compost)

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…It’s not easy at all or even impossible to define the musical genre “Kraut”. Nevertheless, Compost Records and Fred und Luna strike out on the path to find the diverse elements of German electronic music of the 1970s and 1980s and their effects on the new German and international music scene.
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!

Format: – Black double vinyl incl. content sticker and 9 exclusive/unreleased tracks!
