Special edition of Thomas Köner’s La Barca

Author: Colin | Published: 25/3/10

Is Boomkat going into the vinyl special edition business? Not sure of the answer, but they’ve just sent out an email publicising a limited run of 500 copies for the vinyl edition of Thomas Köner’s most recent album. If you’re unfamiliar with his work, he may still be most famous for his work with Andy Mellweg as Porter Ricks whose first and only album for Chain Reaction remains an enduringly stunning piece of minimal techno thick with immersive texture. However, almost all of his subsequent work has explored frozen ambiences and deep sea tectonics.

If you’re interested, don’t dilly-dally, Köner’s work disappears quickly, seems almost never to be reissued and is treasured by his fans.

  3. I’ve heard a strong rumour that there could be a few Koner reissues later this year…

  4. Oh no, but what about all my rare original copies? Only joking, happy to see others get the opportunity to hear Koner’s wonderful soundworlds.
