Artist: Bet.e & Stef
Title: It’s All Right Radio Single
Cat No: CPT 442-3
Info: 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.
Numerous sold-out performances at the Montreal International Jazz Festival earned them critical acclaim that took them beyond borders. Radio success in Québec, across Canada, and in Japan followed with their hit singles ”Day By Day” and ”It’s All Right” spending weeks at the top of the charts. In 2003, Bet.e and Stef . . . →

Releasedate: Sep. 2013
Info: Multiphonia is the debut album from Compost’s new signing Robinn, AKA Tom Le French. Warm synths, off kilter jazz
percussion and touching melodies escort the listener through the album. Adding to the audio delight is Nathaniel
Pearn, also known as Natural Self from Brighton label Tru Thoughts, who provides thoughtfully felt and timed
Tracks like “Hall Of Mirrors” have a timeless quality. Never predictable and always
thought provoking, tracks like this do not come around often. Descending
basslines, subtle keys and layered vocals make for a delightful treat to the ears.
Meanwhile, “Hawaiian Wedding” creates an interesting change in the LPs
direction, with moody overtones and more aggressive drum stabs, but all the while
maintaining the sleek and slick demeanour that we see throughout the album.
The album rounds off the listener’s journey with ‘False’ an epic dubbed out . . . →
