Justus Kohncke was one of the first artists to really draw me into Kompakt. His blend of techno and unashamed heartfelt pop was just so exciting. He really new how to make a banging track as well. I had read about his first band Whirlpool Productions but never heard anything before stumbling on this at Youtube. Odd how similar it sounds to a lot of the edits coming out in 2006.
Justus Kohncke - 2 after 909
Justus Kohncke - How long has this been going on
(update: Oops according to Mr. Carnage from Tape this is actually Lipps Inc. doing "How Long" still a corker though and if you have heard any of Kohncke's disco homages you know he took influence)
Justus Kohncke - Station 18
His remix for Hot Chip's Over and Over last year really set me off. It became kind of a mantra around my house. "Over and over like a monkey with a cymbal the joy of repitition is really upon me!"
