Info: Welcome to ‘Drumpoems Verse 1’, a selection of tracks created by Zurich’s Drumpoet Community and compiled by label head-honchos Alex Dallas and Ron Shiller. Drawing heavily on the Alpine backdrop of their home city and its relaxed vibe, the artists have assembled a selection of exclusive tracks and one-off edits to reflect the rhythm of Zurich and it’s cosmopolitan feel. Coming from the Compost stable and founded in 2005, the Drumpoet Community’s initial aim was to remusicalise the cold and sometimes boring schemes of clubland, bringing sunshine and emotion back to the dancefloor. Essentially it’s music with soul – but don’t think vocals – it’s about the depth of the electronic music, and how, when executed with the panache of this group of Zoorichans, it moves your body and soul. Friends of the community were happy to lend a hand on the album, and so we find brand new tracks from Foster, Soultourist and The Lost Men, sitting alongside exclusive remixes from Quarion and Dixon. Influenced by the legendary Detroit and Chicago scenes, the Drumpoets give everything their own refreshingly original stamp and have already won plaudits from the likes of Jazzanova, Carl Craig, Will Saul, Loco Dice, Laurent Garnier, Todd Terje and Henrik Schwarz. Not content with filling people’s record boxes, the Drumpoet posse also find time to run Zukunft, one of the most talked about underground clubs in Europe, and part of the reason for the city being hailed as ‘the new Berlin’ amongst clubbing cognoscenti. Deep, warm, original and fresh; Drumpoems Verse 1 offers aural relief for the New Year.
