5.0 out of 5 stars One of Kompakt's best ever releases, 28 Aug. 2013
This review is from: 1977 (Audio CD)
This is such a great album. I've been following Kompakt for many a year, yet cannot recall ever hearing of Kolsch before; and yet I would honestly say this is one of the most enjoyable releases on the label. It manages to be fun, quirky, unpretentious and yet highly stylised. Its great throughout the album, scarcely dipping in quality throughout. It just has a feel good factor that is so rare in electronica which doesn't dissolve into cheesiness. Its title, '1977' is appropriate because there's something very 70's about it although it's hard to say what and why, as it's unmistakably an album that could only exist with the availability of today's music technology. Such is the quality of this release that Kompakt, a label now into it's 20th year, have already put a track from it onto the second installment of the 20 Jahre ( a CD collection of Kompakt's best tracks across the 20 years).

If you want to hear a great, happy and bouncy collection of retro-sounding, but unmistakably new music, this is a great place to go. 2013 has been a really strong year for electronic music, with so many of its best artists producing albums/mix cds such as Nick Warren, Autechre, Sasha, Moderat, Jon Hopkins, Dj Koze, Boards of Canada, Dj Sprinkles, Tiefschwarz & Mount Kimbie. Yet this little known producer, Kolsch, has produced an album every bit as good as virtually all these top artists.

5/5

Great review. I agree that it is "happy" without being cheesy. Sometimes reminds me of Kaito or The Field.
