Review: For the second volume in the "Compost Disco Selection" series, label founder Michael Reinboth has rounded up some of the German imprint's most magical disco-house moments (though, we should add, it's not all disco-house in the traditional sense of the term). There's naturally plenty to set the pulse racing throughout, from the angular electronic disco-funk of Indoor Life's "Voodoo (Chocolate Garage Production Mix)" and the throbbing loop-house cheeriness of Tiger and Woods' classic remix of Pitchben's "Stand Up", to the spiraling peak-time disco-with-house-drums of John Gazoo's "Midnight Runner (Vintage Mix)" and the kaleidoscopic boogie-house fun of Purple Disco Machine's remix of Lorenz Rhode's boogie-flavoured "Back". As you'd expect, Reinboth's accompanying DJ mix is tons of fun, too.
Review: Brighton's Timo Garcia has seen his stock steadily rise in the world of tech house over the past few years. Here he teams up with fellow house hero Wagstaff to deliver the impressively ominous "Fibonacci", an almost seven minute moody teched-out jam full of evocative atmospherics and full throbbing bass melodies. Elsewhere on the remix front we have Copy Paste Soul, who opts for a livelier version with rolling, skippy drums and retro organ sounds, whilst Jacky goes for a much more frenetic harder Eurohouse vibe.
