Jörg Burger

Kompakt, Cologne

Under a multitude of monikers including Burger Industries, Triola, the Bionaut and the Modernist, Jorg Burger has established himself as one of the figureheads of Cologne's influential minimalist techno scene. Although his Modernist alter ego suggests a fascination with the present and the contemporary, Burger has (perhaps surprisingly) cited a love for the classic indie pop of 80s UK illuminati such as Aztec Camera, Orange Juice, Scritti Politti and the Smiths alongside his more expected techno-love. More unexpectedly still, on 2003's Kangmei Burger included a track named after the late T. Rex percussionist, "Mickey Finn".

Triola is Jörg Burger's outfit for highly aesthetic, lush ambient music. One could say it replaced his old project The Bionaut that was active on vintage labels like Harvest, Eat Raw or Blue. Triola is a steady guest on KOMPAKT's Pop Ambient comps and we can only recommend to check out his timeless full length release "Triola im Fünftonraum".
