Double LP version. Includes download code. Berlin's own Marco Haas, aka T.Raumschmiere, made an irreparable impression globally in the '00s as a saw-toothed, anti-rave radical, thanks to his immense stage antics and larger-than-life releases on Novamute. Since then, Haas has established himself as a contemporary with emotive, dark ambient tales on his own imprints Shitkatapult and AlbumLabel. Kompakt's love affair with Haas goes back to their earliest days. Some of his first tracks were released on Kompakt in the form of two raw EPs entitled Bolzplatz (KOM 021EP, 2000) and Musick (KOM 037EP, 2001). These two formative releases elevated the "Schaffel" sound to raw and shameless places never before imagined. The results set a tidal wave in motion that to this day remains one of Kompakt's most infamous legacies. In an off-chance reunion with Haas in his studio, Kompakt learnt about what he'd been doing since the "Monstertruckdriver" days. It turned out he's been ever so busy outside of the mainstream working with the likes of Dieter Meier of Yello, Caspar Brötzmann, Andreas Dorau, Fraktus, Ofrin, or Barbara Morgenstern, and his recent work with Ulli Bomans, aka Schieres, as SHRUBBN!!. Kompakt present T.Raumschmiere's new, epic solo full-length Heimat. It presents another side of his work which was always there, but never got that much airtime: the artist, the author, the composer with the crystal-clear sound. Heimat is a stunning techno album that neither excludes ambient, nor gets reduced to constant ass kicking. It's perhaps the best recording so far from this man who asks so deeply, so extensively, so much. And at some point even answers.
