Pop Ambient is a compilation series curated by Wolfgang Voigt, of which I was a part from the very beginning. The upcoming one for 2022 contains two collaborations I produced with Markus Guentner and Pepo Galán. The LP/CD will be released on the twelfth of November. Info With the cover
Some time ago I became aware of the American label “Past Inside The Present” and was amazed by their diverse and comprehensive back catalogue. The other day I had a chat about it with Zakè, the label founder.
“…After “Tides”, “Ousia” is the second purist ambient album by Joachim Spieth; it is released shortly after his contribution to the latest Pop Ambient 2021 (“Libration” together with Pepo Galán). While “Tides” was still characterized by a continuously present, never-ending carpet of sound – following the image of constantly high tides – “Ouisa” goes a step further: here everything moves in waves that swell and subside again…”
Affin will be taking over 9128.live on Saturday 9th January 2021, featuring the presentation of Joachim Spieth’s upcoming album “Ousia”, exclusive live sets, label DJs and friends. We’re looking forward to this happening and hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did preparing for this event!
I’m happy to see “Libration”, a collaboration with Spanish artist Pepo Galán, released on the next Pop Ambient compilation. This series is curated by Wolfgang Voigt, who is one of the founders of the Cologne-based Kompakt label and has been releasing groundbreaking works with his project Gas for more than 20 years.
