Quotes: I love that little track. It’s gorgeous! Charity (Buzzback, NYC)
Info: Since two years it kicks ass weekly on approximately 16 radio stations worldwide as well as on the internet – on demand and live. In every show you’ll get two hours of the freshest freestyle music from all over the world, from miscellaneous labels and producers plus a DJ-mix from DJs like Carl Craig, Cinematic Orchestra, Louie Vega, Jazzanova, Roni Size, Richard Dorfmeister, Nicola Conte, Rainer Trüby and of course also from upcoming names like Trickski, Alif Tree or yet unknown new talents. Selected, moderated, produced, hosted and organized by Michael Rütten, a true Compost family member, who doesn’t know any stylistic boundaries as long as it is soulful, interesting, fresh and of musical value. As everyone can see on this CD it’s not about boring, mainstream orientated club- or radio-music but about the spirit of labels like Compost, Ninja Tune, K7, Versatile, Ubiquity, G-Stone, Playhouse, Talkin Loud, Blue Note, Verve, MPS, Stax, Motown, Warp, Kompakt, Sonar Kollektiv and many other small pressings. It’s important to be open for everything, but also to have some kind of contour. Not every Compost-tune will be played but it’s surely not a DJ-mix show with anonymous DJ-tools. The close contact and intense exchange with labels, artists and DJs from all over the world makes sure that the Compost Radio Show is always up to date. Many inquiries like “Where can I get this music.”, the heap of fresh promos and unreleased CD-R tunes and of course our intent to spread “good”, radio-fit music all over the world brought us to the conclusion to release a CD with material from the radio show.
