One of the most celebrated compilations of electronic cuddle-music returns for the seventh round, featuring new, rare and exclusive contributions. Pop Ambient as a term and sound-philosophy has evolved as a solid-sized contender in the ambient world. Beside Kompakt's renowned and indispensable protagonists of this "movement" (think Markus Guentner, Ulf Lohmann, Klimek and Triola), there are some new names amongst this year's challengers. Take The Field -- Sweden's inside tip for the tastemaking techno community. His track is a tremendous glimpse into his anxiously-awaited Kompakt debut album set to arrive in spring 2007. Or Marsen Jules, who you should know from his beautiful releases on the Berlin label City Center Offices. We rejoice as Wolfgang Voigt's cult-project Gas returns to the ring with a rarely-heard (and extraordinary) blast from the past. The beloved and legendary Thomas Fehlmann (of The Orb) also returns, as well as Cologne-based Popnoname, who charms with his lovely melodies and live show of guitar, computer, and microphone. Overall (for our veteran ears), expect more bassdrum, that of course is -- Pop Ambient-like -- heard playing in the background. A feast for the fire -- a dousing for the water.
