The Nicola Conte Dubstrumental is so great, a grower and real winner, the perfect old school nu school house vibe. Early support by Moodymann, Gilles Peterson, Rainer Trüby and the whole Compost crew. First 10inch on Compost Black Label !

Bet.e & Stef took the country by storm over a decade ago with their pop meets jazz, bossa-nova and latin stylings. Remarkably, they earned a Gold record in Canada with their self-released first album, “Jazz Bossa Nova”. A deal with Japan’s Toshiba-EMI soon followed, along with interest from every major record label in Canada. This JUNO-nominated duo from Montréal, Québec chose to partner with Universal Music Canada, achieving Platinum with their second album, “Day By Day.” Both milestones were even more remarkable given their global, multilingual sound was a far cry from the pop music du jour.

Info:
Wait wait, till the two rollover melodies emerging. An extraordinary hybrid of twisted beats and live music, and great remixes by Einzelkind, Si-Tew, Space Coast. Check also the Björk-like vocal track “Unsafe Music”. Terrific!

We welcome The OhOhOhs on Compost Black Label with their unique disco-driven indietronic analogue outfit. The package comes with a lush techy remix by Einzelkind & Robin Scholz, developing a wicked playfulness. Space Coast delivering an epic synth-packed disco version of the original. Si Tew’s remix decorates the smooth “Unsafe Music” with decent production skills, both percussive and bassy in an eclectic way.

Info:
Christian Prommer is back with a awesome herald for his upcoming first solo album „ÜberMood“ which will be out in March this year! Featuring collaborations with long term labelmates Beanfield and Roland Appel. The Friends At Work EP! And we are more than happy to throw in some serious remix pressure with Dinky’s vibrant rework for „Duckwalk“!
Unbelievable but true, „Duckwalk“ marks Christian Prommers first studio collaboration with Beanfields Jan Krause! Tripping 70s synths and futuristic beats in combination with classical voices and a crisp production are laying the ground for this truly amazing midtempo tune.
No wonder „Duckwalk“ caught the attention of Dinky when we asked her to contribute a remix. We were very enthusiastic about Dinky’s „Dimension D“ album on Visionquest last year – and the way she is recently fusing songwriting, indie- and pop influences with clubmusic in a touching, fresh way.
