Gilles Peterson announces the 100th release comp on Compost:
"With great pleasure I pronounce Compost the most consistent and forward
thinking record label of continental Europe. Quietly releasing the right and proper pieces from a slowly building alternative club culture that has now not only made worldwide news but is also changing the rules Stateside! Compost is the honest and independent vision of Michael Reinboth who I first met when he invited me to play at his tiny residency in Munich 13 years ago!
I was at that "lets see what¹s up in Deutschland phase" and Michael was the
first to show me there was a future in playing cool records for a living!
In the years that have passed his label has somehow not only represented the
correct edge but most importantly has given this scene a true base enabling
DJs and artists a feeling of being part of something truly meaningful! It
hasn't been easy as there's always someone ready to put you down but after
enough time you achieve collective strength to knock the cynics off! Today
all of clublife is looking at Germany a little like the French touch a few
years back and where Daft Punk led the disco revival I feel truly excited at
the impact Truby, Jazzanova, Kruder , the Fauna Flash crew and the whole
Compost family will have on world clubbing related music ! These guys are
bringing the Soul back! Ask Oakenfold, Carl Cox or Tenaglia and you'll see that even the biggest djs in the world are tuned and inspired by those Bavarian beats." Gilles Peterson

After having plunged into the depths of the diasporic Brazilian soul made in Germany, the Glücklich compilation series has moved on to present Brazilian fused music from a new generation of artists alongside that of their idols. The re-definition of the Brazilian feeling through urban club-culture has taken many different forms, always seeking to catch that special spirit. This third compilation in the series strives to portray the transformation of this spirit from a musical style and national culture to an international movement.
