COMPOST 500 is divided in three chapters:
- „FRESHLY COMPOSTED“ (previously unreleased) ...and two „Best Of’s“ of the Compost catalogue:
- „SOME MICHAEL REINBOTH FAVOURITES“
- „HIDDEN GEMS“ (Top B-sides, secret weapons & undiscovered pearls of the Compost back catalogue)
#1 FRESHLY COMPOSTED
The Freshly Composted serie (50, 100, 250, 300) always represents a musical snapshot of Compost Records, bringing together a variety of genres and vibes, all produced by some of the finest artists at the moment.
This “COMPOST 500 – Freshly Composted” episode includes previously unreleased tracks and remixes by Siren, Mark E, Mathias Schaffhäuser, Claudio Ricci & Megablast, SHOW-B, Robinn, Marbert Rocel, Emilie Nana and Compost Allstars (consisting of Christian Prommer, Beanfield’s Jan Krause, Roland Appel and Michael Reinboth) featuring Robert Owens and others.
#2 SOME MICHAEL REINBOTH FAVOURITES
In this chapter, our label head Michael Reinboth picked some of his fave tunes from the Compost back catalogue, including the works of Carl Craig, Âme, John Talabot, Todd Terje, Moonstarr, Jay Shepheard, Beanfield, A Forest Mighty Black and more. Of course there are much more, but those timeless tracks played a significant role in the Compost history.
#3 HIDDEN GEMS
The third chapter of COMPOST 500 points out a selection of top B-sides, secret weapons and undiscovered pearls from the Compost vault. You’ll find a lot of solid, but barely explored material here, such as tracks and remixes by Psychemagik, Henrik Schwarz, Zero dB, Move D, John Tejada, Christian Prommer, Lexx and more!
