Kompakt is a Cologne-based electronic music record label and vinyl/CD distributor, owned by Wolfgang Voigt, Michael Mayer and Jürgen Paape. They specialize in microhouse and minimal techno, and are known for their Total compilation series, now in its 10th installment. Notable producers of the label include Superpitcher, Michael Mayer, Justus Köhncke and Jürgen Paape.

"Kompakt’s chief aesthetic objective has always been the perfect marriage of ambient texture and linear 4x4 structure—blending deep, granular sound design with the 4-bar rhythmic intensity and patterning that makes house and techno so club-effective". - Grooves magazine. Kompakt has recently revamped their site, with an extensive catalog to date.
