Chill Kompakt [Triola]

I've been listening to a lot of Triola lately. (It's an alias of Jörg Burger, aka The Modernist) His song "In Lourdes" has been lulling me to sleep for the past 5 months or so, and now I can't stop listening to the one-track album "Im Fünftonraum." This is some older-style Kompakt stuff, it sounds a bit like KaitO but there are parts of it that could also work on Michael Mayer's Immer 1 mix.

A translation for our non-Kompakt nerd audience!: this is very "warm" ambient techno, with lots of "small"-sounding synthesizers. Sometimes there's a soft bass drum too. So it's ideal for personal or headphone listening, definitely not something to play in the club.

My tip: if you download the album, be sure to make it at least 10 minutes in, that's when the best song starts.
