Kompakt Advent Calendar

German label gets festive

German dance imprint Kompakt has launched a new advent calendar in the run up to Christmas.

It’s Christmas! Well, almost.

German label Kompakt are getting festive, and have decided to give away free downloads to fans each day. The iconic imprint have enjoyed a spectacular 2010, after finishing their 10th anniversary celebrations.

Releasing a string of cuts, Kompakt prove that there’s much more diversity to minimal techno than some would suggest. Finishing the year in style, the label recently released another instalment in their ‘Total’ compilation series.

Providing a home for Jatoma’s debut, Kompakt is the perfect place for the trio to release their mind melting beats. With the year drawing to a close, the imprint will now offer fans free downloads via an Advent Calendar.

“Christmas time is upon us and this year we are celebrating with a musical Advent Calendar! We know how long the wait can be until Christmas, so KOMPAKT and some of our friends have put together a special selection of gifts that include releases, mixes, and merchandise and one gift will be revealed each day to make the wait feel shorter.”

Already, Kompakt have given away one off tracks and free mixes. The label are also inviting fans to enter a daily competition, with prizes so far including Inner Mix CDs, ‘Modern Love Bundle’ and more.

Running each day until December 24th, a few lucky fans are set to get an extra special (and early!) Christmas present.
