  • Munich's Compost will add a new subsidiary to their empire next month, which will focus on disco-influenced productions. Entitled Compost Disco, the imprint will serve as a specific platform for producers who have found inspiration in the campier side of four-to-the-floor dance music. This isn't really new territory for Compost, as artists like Zwicker and Phreek Plus One have demonstrated on previous 12-inches for them, but Compost Disco will now act as a separate entity in order to group them together. Compost's long-term graphic designer Benjamin Roeder (who is part of Permanent Vacation's Spectacle with David Muallem) has come up with a brand new artwork concept for Compost Disco, with each release set to be adorned by various collages of disco-related images. The subsidiary's inaugural release will be a modern take on Italo-disco called "Why Your Love" by Stefano e Bene, who have enlisted Italian native Hard Ton to help out on production duties. Hard Ton, Snuff Crew and Katzbatz (which is Stefano and Cologne-based DJ Catweasel's collaborative project) will all provide remixes on the package. Compost Disco will release Stefano e Bene's Why Your Love on July 2nd, 2010.
