A sophisticated little bastard of a DJ-mix

It’s about time for the fifth instalment of the Compost Black Label Series – unveiling some of the finest cuts in the label’s recent history in a versatile DJ mix crafted by Compost family member Thomas Herb, who built a strong reputation as a DJ when it’s about merging soul-injected house, techno and disco into a musical journey. Featuring winner tunes and remixes by Phreek Plus One, Osunlade, Woolfy, DJ T. or Rainer Trueby, Herb is also highlighting the work of new breed like Emil Seidel, Philipp Stoya and Emilie Nana, who all contributed high-quality tunes on the Black Label within the last year. Playing on top of the game since about one and a half decades, . . . →

Info: Compost Black Label is proud to present and celebrate the fourth chapter of latest and recent vinyl tunes. All done by most talented actors (for example Solomun, Peter Kruder, Rainer Trueby, Roland Appel, Jay Shepheard, Shahrokh a.o. or remixers like Pilooski, Franck Roger, Afrilounge, Tiefschwarz, Roberto Rodriguez a.o.) If you check some of the DJ quotes about the particular tracks (see below) you get an impression how we kicked off the last months. From moody late night house, via jazzy chords, jacking beats, discoid elements, deep tunes, or colorful techy soulful house music, our label vibe seems to be best typified and represented here. SHOW-B, another strong character of ours, selected and mixed . . . →

Quotes: The Blacklabel delivers once again! Proper deep and rolling vibes to hypnotize the dancefloor. Jimpster / Real quality house music! Ashley Beedle / A very good and serious challenger for the record of the year… DJ Yellow / It´s proper jacking house!

Info: Three years ago Compost Records was breaking new grounds with the formation of the Blacklabel Series. The aim was to put Compost back on the dancefloor map and into the cases of the worlds leading international DJs. The formula was easy: less jazz and soul – more house and tekky stuff. The outcome wasn’t the “typical” Compost sound anymore which people related with the Munich based label. This was bleepy and creepy, dark and pumping! Distinguishable by its artwork, colour and sound, the Blacklabel Series turned out to be the perfect imprint . . . →

Info: Releasing the first part of the new Black Label Series in Spring 2005, Compost surprised quite a few people, who never had Compost on their map of clubland. This wasn’t the “typical” Compost sound people related with the Munich based label. This was bleepy, creepy, dark and pumping. Or as Michael Rütten described Black Label 01: “Rough and and ready to rumble”. Or simply just like Tiga said: “Cool!” Compost always had real club tracks on its roster. Remember Move D, Terranova or Procreation (Deetron). With the Black Label, Compost has created an appropriate surrounding. Distinguishable by artwork, colour and sound, it is the perfect imprint to release forward thinking club tracks and sonic experiments. The Black Label is also a platform for fresh new talents (eg. Brahmasonic) as well as for big names (eg. Tyree Cooper Compost will continue to be one of the most . . . →
