A Kompakt advert in the Groove magazine seem to suggest a 10x12"/4CD GAS boxset? The catalog number seems to be KOMPAKT 370, anyone knew about it?

Come on, we need reissues (preferable Nah Und Fern), these prices are becoming absurd!

GAS is the most electronica esoteric Artist, I've ever heard.
You can listen to any work. When you first listen to it, you may feel a bit bored.
But repeat it and it will sink deeper and deeper.
I mean, I even use it for meditation! It's more intensive than the most disks you get a the "cosmic sore"! Most describe it as a quite dark music, but in my opinion it isn't that dark.
If you listen to "pop" it's even very bright. Maybe "Königsforst" is quite deep, but not what I would call really "dark". Not more or less dark as the Symphonies of Franz Schubert or Johannes Brahms are.
