GAS | Zauberberg / Königsforst / Pop (Kompakt) – available on CD
The Kompakt label has just reissued for the first time on CD in its original artwork, the 3 chapters of the famous GAS BOX : Zauberberg / Königsforst / Pop.
Zauberberg – Wolfgang Voigt’s most fundamental (and foreboding) release under his alias GAS and perhaps of all in his untold discography – finally stands alone once again and is released in the way its original splendour.
Following the 1997 release of Zauberberg, Wolfgang Voigt’s GAS project returned with Königsfrost, a full length that has stood the test of time as a template for introducing fundamentals of 90’s techno into the principles of contemporary electronic music.

And to finish the trilogy, here is Pop – an album that has become widely recognized as the defining moment in which Wolfgang Voigt brought us into a clearing of his deep, psychedelic forest. A landmark release in the Gas odyssey that drew international attention, Pop was originally released in 2000 on the iconic Frankfurt imprint Mille Plateaux. Pop was heralded by Pitchfork at the time of release as being “an exercise in sonic texture… pure sonic velvet, the layered drone radiating a palpable warmth.”
