25 Compost Records


Artist: Various Artists
Label: Compost Records
CPT 544-1/-3
Release Date: 25 May 2019

Compost Records has been at the forefront of independent club, house, future jazz and downbeat for the last 25 years. To celebrate this milestone, the German label has released a retrospective box-set of some of their highlights from the last quarter of a century... but with a twist...

Rather than just reissue a collection of highlights from their past releases, the guys and gals at Compost Records asked esteemed artists to reinterpret their favourite Compost tunes. The result is a 48 track (5 hr, 49 min, 10 sec) collection that sees talented young artists and many of the label's all-time favourite producers giving their input. Alongside the remixes and sold out vinyl label-classics, there are a few exclusive tracks in this limited, hand numbered 10x12'' box.

If you're a fan of the label, then this is a no brainer. Likewise, club and house fans will want to add this to their collection.

A lovingly crafted release that is a joy from start to finish.
