Title: Future Sounds Of Jazz Vol. 6
Cat No: CPT 060-1 / CPT 060-2
Format: 3-LP / CD

Quotes: this project feels more like an original album than a compilation. BPM Culture / This stuff compared to most cheesy club fluff or current lounge imitation is like comparing Dove Bars to Eskimo Pies. Compost’s version of jazz is more than a few cuts above average. skinny.com

Info: Beatless: Alex Attias was a member of the defunct Bel Air Project, whose „Jazz With Attitude“-10inch provided one of the best club moments in 1997. Currently he is working under three different pseudonyms: Beatless, Mustang and Catalyst (for Future Talk Rec., France). Moreover his activities as a DJ lead him all over the world and keep him busy all the time. Just take a look at his excellent remixes for 4 Hero, Francisco Aguabella for Ubiquity and all the other stuff under his monikers on labels such as Sirkus, Future Talk, Sonar Kollektiv.

Quotes: ’Future Sounds Of Jazz’-compilations on German label Compost Records are highly recommended in the electronic and jazzy club community, as well as by the drum & bass people. The interesting problem is, that a lot of the experimental electronica areas feel the deficit of the intellectual/spiritual elements that come from jazz. But here is the certain vibe, the certain aspects of jazz. Magnet Magazine

Info: 19 tracks on 4-piece vinyl-package, double-CD, 3 previously unreleased tracks.

Format: 4-LP / 2-CD

Quotes: A world without Compost – UNTHINKABLE! Maybe you the listener will not accept the `Future` word in the title as easier as others or that other word, `Jazz` sits along side it. Open your mind is all that Michael (Reinboth, CEO) is saying – embrace the age that we live in as well as respect the past. Paul Gamblin (DJ & Black&Blue Radio Show) / Just a so extraspheric and brilliant sonic mosaic in tones and tunes: for moments extremely humanoid and ready to be exported to planet X. Crystallic perfect jazz for a film of secret agents and affairs of sensual passion. Helene Ramos Galagarza

Info: Pressure Drop „Unify (Ripped)“: Pressure Drop or Blood Brothers as they are calling themselves as a production-team are Dave Henley and Justin Langlands! Most of you will already know them from their charts approved „Upset“ album which was released in the early . . . →

Quotes: RAC has delivered a series of EPs which have consistently been ahead of their times. Experimenting with breakbeat-science and electro-ish rhythms long before they became fashionable, his stylised staccato beats and percussive hooks have built a loyal following and made him something of a trainspotter’s hero. Muzik / Beats and the bizarre clash once again as dirty clay connectios flow funkily between some etheral chord action. All that’s left and all that’s right in London in ‘96. Straight No Chaser

Info: Max 404: Moody jazzy remix of his more triphop-version on Future Sound Of Jazz Vol. II. From dutch progressive Eevo Lute Muzique. Max 404 is Erwin Van Moll, who creates leftfield techno like Ritchie Hawtin, Dave Angel or Carl Craig, but often you hear also influences from Eno, Massive, MoWax or Morricone. Check his CD „Love & Mathematics“.

RAC: RAC is Chris Duckenfield and Richard Benson . . . →
