Format: 2-LP / CD / Download

Quotes: Essential purchase for anyone keen to hear quality modern interpretations off the good groove.  Straight No Chaser

Info: The Party-Keller compilation series is a project linked to my constant Munich-based clubnights. After some short journeys to the Japanese Soultage label (Soul Jammin’ Vol.3) and a mix for London-based Breakin Bread (The Party-Keller Mix CD), we have finally reached Vol. 3.

In the late Seventies direct-to-disc albums were quite popular, since they sound great and people spent some serious dough on proper hi-fi equipment in those days. We actually coupling four amazing cuts from three different direct-to-disc albums here: Mickey Erbe’s Orchestra interpretation of the „2001 Theme“ (which I’ve played very often in the early Nineties, I almost forgot how good it is), then two superb Gino Dentie’s interpretations of B.T. Express’ „Express“ and Brass Construction’s „Movin’“, as well as Rahmlee (Michael Davis) from Earth . . . →

Vol. 3. not only keeps up with the quality of the previous installments but also takes it into another direction. Well done! Bag Of Goodies

Info: Three years has gone by since the last Elaste compilation. In this time the virus of cosmic disco (or afrofunky as they say in Italy) has spread round the place – giving me lots of good feedback and fan-letters. Thank you! I have spent these three years looking for more avantgardistic, galactic sounding disco, proto-techno, electronic new wave, and cheesy slow motion pop… and I . . . →

Title: Compost Hip Hop Selection – 2Hot 2Cold 2Tough – Compost Hip Hop Choice – compiled by Sepalot
Cat No: CPT 314-3
Format: Download

Quotes: Sepalot shifts effortlessly between hip-hop, eletronica, rap and any other imaginable related genre on the new album, “Red Handed”. Sepalot, as a musician, is hip-hop’s answer to Prince, before Prince became the artist formerly known as. This is hip-hop beyond hip-hop, where the genre of hip-hop merges with other musical forms to create a mish-mash of sounds a far cry from the music of hip-hop’s forefathers. Tim Kernutt (backstage pass) / This Sepalot Release is absolutely blinding. The instrumentals are heavy on their own. A breath of fresh air. Justin (UnaBomber, Electric Chair, Xfm) / If u don’t realize the compound of musical richness in this album then you have to be deaf on both ears. Norbert Schiegl (Juice)

Info: Sepalot is one of the top hip-hop DJs in Germany with an open minded attitude, he is a famously ardent purveyor  of all . . . →
