Kompakt give us a taste of this year’s instalment in their Pop Ambient series.

Jens-Uwe Beyer is perhaps best known for his synth-pop experiments under the guise of Popnoname (or PNN), although the German artist has been a regular contributor to Cologne institution Kompakt’s Pop Ambient series since 2005.

The Pop Ambient series has collected ambient experiments from artists worldwide since 2001 and is compiled each year by Kompakt co-founder Wolfgang Voigt.

For the 2015 edition Beyer provides a heady, spaced-out drone jam entitled ‘Moewen’. The track has been given the video treatment ahead of its release next week, with the classy video accompaniment compiling vintage mountaineering footage for an immersive sensory experience.

Kompakt will release Pop Ambient 2015 on November 10. Kompakt recently uploaded a playlist of its Pop Ambient compilations from 2001 to 2013 on YouTube. You can stream it below.
