Title: Compost Tech House Selection – Dirty Cache
Cat No: CPT 441-3
After one and a half decade and more than 400 releases, Compost Records bundles some of their finest tunes as Various Artists digital download compilation albums. The variety and full spectrum of Compost’s repertoire has never or rarely been presented in form of a musical genre compilation. These releases will be compiled or DJ-mixed by Compost’s artists and are available as digital downloads, except in some rare cases very very limited as 500 CDs.
House-music was always a big part of the Compost catalogue. This already resulted in two ‘House- compilations (Compost House Selection Vol. 1 & 2).
For this particular house selection, Rupert & Mennert, dove into the darker side of the catalogue. They searched for tracks that contained the minimalistic elements of ‘Techno’ mixed with the more soulful parts of ‘House’.
To create a platform for this type of music, Compost founder Michael . . . →
Title: Elaste Vol. 4
Cat No: CPT 439-1/2
Format: 2-LP / CD
Welcome to the fourth chapter of the ELASTE series!
In this compilation I am progressing a style I am inaugurating: Vintage Futurism.
The best metaphor for this genre is Charanjit Singh’s 1982 album Ten Ragas to a Disco Beat in which he created a sound which mirrors, but more importantly pre-dates, the first acid house record by five years. It is no novelty record, but truly capturing the hypnotic potential of acid/house music. It became my key track for Elaste Volume 4.
Previous incarnations of Elaste have aimed to catch the spirit of the late 70’s Italian Cosmic Discotheque, a place where the history of DJing was rewritten within this microcosm. For this latest instalment I was most intrigued by weird of-the-time (or ‘out-of’ as the case turned out to be) electronic disco, a vast genre!
