Compost Records have dropped another of their solid Black Label releases, this time with contributions from more label newcomers Liquid Phonk and Sello. The previous compilation (CBL #94) saw the label assemble a varied 3 track release with a stand-out effort from Lukas Bohlender: Club Chateau’s delicately crafted melancholia glides soulfully with emotional strings, compelling bass and an end-of-the-line (or night) vibe.
Keeping things eclectic, on the latest Compost excursion Liquid Phonk delivers what his pseudonym implies: Heart & Soul is a slice of warm deep house complete with an infectious and uplifting vocal to which the track owes its name. The flip sees Sello work a different mood, eschewing Heart & Soul’s feel-good tack for a cagier, heads-down affair: with Liquid Phonk’s rays of sunshine long gone, Sello’s Everyday broods away in darker climes.
