The Field

Axel Willner is among the Kompakt label’s most beloved and polarizing techno performers. This is because of his richly emotive audio, which has mixed only slightly over the years. The Swedish instrumentalist and manufacturer debuted the Field with Factors Keep Dropping Down (Feb 2005). A sensational entrance, the 12″ included a set of blissed-out trance-techno monitors over 10 minutes long — among which, “Idea vs. Actions,” made smart usage of the intro towards the Four Tops’ “I’M GOING TO BE There.” The next 12″, Sunlight and Glaciers (Apr 2006), incorporated examples of Lionel Richie and Kate Bush and resulted in the Field’s initial album, From Right here We Move Sublime (March 2007). Two of Willner’s dreamiest & most amazing monitors made an appearance on Kompakt’s Pop Ambient 2007 and Pop Ambient 2008 compilations ahead of Yesterday now (Might 2009), a rhythmically mixed set because of the participation of many instrumentalists, including Fights drummer John Stanier. Looping Mind-set (Oct 2011) boasted Willner’s brawniest substances of shoegaze, ambient dub, and techno. Cupid’s Mind (Oct 2013) as well as the Follower (Apr 2016), as indicated by their sleeve colours, provided darker moods and had been, just like the debut, produced purely by Willner. The maker has also used part within the group Cologne Tape, and it has recorded under a small number of single aliases, including Loops of the Heart.
