Info: Silver wedding: Compost Records celebrates it’s 250th release!!! More than 1.700 songs released, in the business for 13 years and still making mad noise! On our 100th jubilee Gilles Peterson said: “With great pleasure I pronounce Compost the most consistent and forward thinking record label of continental Europe.“ Even 150 catalogue numbers later, there is not the faintest reason for doubting this quote. Just take one look at the impressive list of newcomers on Compost in 2006: Nova Dream Sequence, Alif Tree, Marsmobil, Jean-Paul Bondy, Soil & Pimp Session, Muallem, Shahrokh SoundofK. Names you are going to hear from, word! But during the last months there have been reunions with old friends too. Both Karma as well as Koop enchanted us with their new albums.
„Freshly Composted Vol. 2“ provides on one hand an extensive survey of the most important releases on Compost from the past year but on the other hand also an exclusive forecast to the new Ben Mono album which is going to be released in early spring. Speaking of exclusiveness: besides Ben’s sneak preview „Jesus Was A B-Boy“ there are six more tracks on this CD which were previously only available on 12“ vinyl but now finally make their way into your cd players and car systems. including breathtaking remixes by grandmasters of the game like Carl Craig, Moodymann, Todd Terje or Robag Wruhme. And just like you are used to, this Compost compilation leaves behind stylistic boundaries and offers a diversified mixture of disco, house, techno, soul, jazz, a little bit of pop and cosmic. It is the blueprint of Compost’s musical philosophy for the 21st century. And we won’t stop going straight to 300!
