VA - Downbeat Selection vol. 2 (Compost Records, 2011)

After one and a half decade and more than 370 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. With the second Downbeat Selection, Compost head honcho and compiler Michael Reinboth shows the folky swinging side of the Compost repertoire. Vocal pop and uplifting tunes from our most talented songwriters highlighting a small but delightful spectrum of the Compost vault. Btw, Michael’s life-course shows that he compiled more than 25 compilations in his long term career, his first one was Germany’s first ever Hip Hop sampler called “Krauts With Attitude” in 1988, as well as he compiled two comps for Sleeping Bag Records (released on German label Intercord) with classics from Arthur Russell, Weekend, Konk, Class Action, Todd Terry a.m.o., including linernotes by Michael Reinboth, not to forget the „Future Sound Of Jazz“ (vol.1-11) serie, which will be continued with Vol.12 this autumn 2011.
