The sixth edition of Kompakt's highly-anticipated yearly ambient experiment, that includes new tracks specific to this compilation. Pop Ambient is programmed poetry, field data processing -- it is like a sweet way of getting drunk without having a hangover, because Kompakt knows how to slow it down like none other. Pop Ambient is the orchid in the pleasure garden of ambient music. Pop Ambient 2006 features not only well-known heroes like Markus Guentner, The Orb, Ulf Lohmann, Triola, Andrew Thomas and the enchanting Tetsuo Sakae from Japan and his project called Pass Into Silence - Pop Ambient 2006 also features some hot new entrants, for example jazzy Uli Teichmann who comes up with free piano improvisations over smoothed sound echoes and who, as the names suggests, is the father of the lively Teichmann Brothers. You will also find two Pop Ambient cover versions: Fleetwood Mac's classic hit "Albatross" in a wonderful version produced by Kohncke/Heimermann and already known from Speicher 031. And Klimek's version of Eric Satie's masterpiece "Gymnopedie." In the meantime, the Pop Ambient series enters its sixth year and has become a vital part of Kompakt's label profile. And this year again, it is the perfect Christmas present.
