25 years strong and still going steeply. Compost will release an anniversary 10 x 12“ box set early 2019. Here comes the very strictly limited, serially numbered, stickered white label Overture Record 2 sneak preview. Compost classics by Siren, Tomasz Guiddo, Lorenz Rhode remixed by Phil Mison, Gerd Janson and Ewan Pearson. Massive disco stuff!
The box-set will contain more than 30 new remixes of Compost classics by Ron Trent, Michel Cleis, Roman Flügel, Ripperton, François K, Recondite, DJ Spiller, Purple Disco Machine, Lawrence, Tee Mango, Delano Smith, Boo Williams and many many others.... plus some for a long time sold out gems and a few nice gimmicks.
„Compost is probably the reason why we are doing what we are doing. It first got us in contact with electronic and eclectic music, that wasn't strictly Techno and it opened a whole new world for us. To see with what kind of passion and enthusiasm Michael is running the label for 25 years is a real inspiration. Let's take it from here to eternity!“

“Only a few independent labels has been so visionary and on the cutting edge as Compost was and is today. A beautiful frame for creative and ground breaking music.”
“Compost has been a staple in the development of the music of my prime. Creating a world of new depths in electronic, soul, jazz and every other genre you can think of. I’m looking forward to another 25 years of beautiful music from the Compost family.”
