Compost Records is celebrating 25 years in the game. That’s no easy feat to accomplish with styles, genres and fads changing on a never-ending basis. The fact that they are still relevant, not just relevant, but thriving, all of these years later, is a testament to the quality of the label’s output.
In order to celebrate another milestone achievement, Compost reached out to an esteemed roster of artists and asked them to contribute a remix of their favorite tune from the label’s back catalog. This is a huge package. A box set of 10 records plus digital exclusives on top of that and it features some fantastic artists both younger and more established.
To help Compost celebrate this achievement we’ve gladly volunteered to premiere one of the remixes from the compilation. Kai Alce’s Full Shuffle Remix of the classic hit “Sidestep” by Rainer Trueby & Corrado Bucci aka Truccy. A shuffling beat and jazzy synth licks introduce the tune alongside the now classic vocal. Deep pads and Kai’s infamous keyboard noodling continue to come into the fold, transforming this tune into a contemporary gem. Kai Alce can seemingly jam on top of anything and this here is no exception.
Sidestep is just one of many classic Compost tracks to get the remix treatment. Be sure to order your copy to hear the rest with this link!
