Velvet Desert Music Vol. 1 introduces a new compilation series on Kompakt, curated by one of Cologne's leading figures in electronic music, Jörg Burger (aka The Modernist, The Bionaut, Burger/Ink, and many more). Velvet Desert Music Vol. 1 combines elements of rock, folk, country, surf, krautrock, and psychedelic in contemporary electronic music. The compilation features unreleased music and mixes from Matias Aguayo (Terrapin), Fantastic Twins, Paulor, Rebolledo, Sascha Funke & Cosmo Vitelli, Superpitcher, The Modernist, and more. The concept shares some similarities to Kompakt's Pop Ambient series as unlike a conventional compilation of tracks from different artists, Velvet Desert Music Vol. 1 is a collection of music that creates a distinct vibe and atmosphere. The release is intended to be heard as you would hear an album from an (imaginary) band. Jörg Burger is responsible for the concept and selection. The styles of music presented on Velvet Desert Music Vol. 1 play a crucial role and influence in his work for many years. Now he has created a platform for these styles. Beside showcasing his own music, Jörg Burger kept to inviting a close circle of friends and colleagues that share similar influences in their work. All of their contributions were specially composed or remixed for this collection. Velvet Desert Music Vol. 1 features the first new Burger/Ink track since the release of their iconic full length Las Vegas on Harvest and Matador Records in 1996. Also features The Novotones, Cologne Tape, Kenneth James Gibson. CD version includes tracks by Jörg Burger, Metope, and Paul Mac. "Just think... from Sergio Leone to David Lynch, from Elvis in his deepest moments to Johnny Cash somewhere between amphetamine backlash and American Songs, from 'Hollywood Babylon' to 'Hotel California', from Mulholland Drive to Paris, Texas. Served with a pinch of Tago Mago and Pink Floyd at Pompeii. Then you know exactly what Velvet Desert Music is about... " --Jörg Burger
