Presented on LP with CD included. After re-releasing the sold-out Kompakt classics Triumph by Jürgen Paape and The Field's From Here We Go Sublime (KOMRSD 002LP) for past Record Store Days, Kompakt now directs its attention to another almost mystical release from days of yore. Just like The Field's iconic debut album, Dettinger's 1999 full-length milestone Intershop has never seen a vinyl release -- a much-deplored oversight now rectified. Restored to breathtaking beauty, the newly mastered Intershop is one of the label's most renowned pre-millennium offerings, a surprise best-seller and a style-defining predecessor of the then-nascent pop ambient genre. A massive fan favorite, it was originally released on CD only and held seven masterfully crafted cuts introducing the listener to a new blueprint for electronic music. Wayfaring somewhere between field recordings, pop stylings, and dreamy textures, sonics like these were simply unheard of. The tracks latch onto early ambient experiments from artists like Wolfgang Voigt, but taking a different path to pop epiphany. Dettinger carved out a niche on his own that was soon to become the breeding ground for a whole generation of ambient-minded artists. Also, Intershop has been utterly sold out for a while now -- another perfectly good reason to return to this masterpiece with a fresh set of ears. Let's lounge like it's 1999!
