Since '94 Compost Records has released over 70 records, promoted
incredible talent, and developed their sound by combining
elements of Dub, Jazz, Funk, Latin, and various dance styles.
Compost is a label that is influenced by so many styles, yet
on its own has inspired many others. One of their latest compilations,
Compost Community, is a collection of some of their more recent
releases form the likes of Beanfield, Trüby Trio, Les
Gammas, Kyoto Jazz Massive, and previously unreleased material
from Fauna Flash, Voom:Voom, and A Forest Mighty Black.
If you are not familiar with Compost, innovation is the primary
element that distinguishes their sound and the material combines
so many influences, making it near impossible to classify.
The opening track to Compost Community, "Mother Nature"
by Fauna Flash, features vocalist Sugar B and happens to be
the opening track to Fauna Flash's new album It's one of the
best tracks, but just a taste of the material on the album.
There are some stellar dance tunes like Trüby Trio's
"A Go Go," "Positivity" from Compost new
comers, Wordless People, as well as thick dubby numbers like
Procreation's "Citizen." All of the material is
exceptional and it should also be noted that and it may be
the last chance to get CD copies of vinyl only releases like
Voom:Voom's wickedly heavy bass track "Poppen" or
the hypnotic melody of Native Force's "Music Box."
