Kompakt, the German techno label currently riding high on Matias Aguayo’s instant-classic “Minimal” (particularly the DJ Koze remix, available in edited form here), is set to issue a new 12-inch by British artist Sam Taylor-Wood, who’s covering the Passions’ post-punk classic “I’m in Love with a German Filmstar” in collaboration with the Pet Shop Boys. The collaboration makes sense a few different ways: Taylor-Wood has guested on previous PSB recordings; Kompakt head Michael Mayer is a huge PSB fan, as he detailed a while back in this interview; and Neil Tennant’s half of the duo’s Back to Mine collection featured plenty of Kompakt.
