Various Artists Soulsearching:The Compost Radio Show
- Words: Peter Nicholson
- Label: Compost
Michael Rütten's radio show is one of the few I can be bothered to track down on the internet and this volume easily explains why it‘s worth the search. Rütten's not afraid to switch up tempos-Pascal Rioux and Mr. Day's dreamy house number "Don‘t Outstay Outside Tonight" is sandwiched between two decidedly downtempo cuts, for instance; his selections are complimentary rather than homogenous. With songs as disparate as 2 Banks of 4's chopped and squelched remix of Build an Ark's "You Gotta Have Freedom" and Benny Sings' "Make A Rainbow," with its bare piano plus chorus, this mix is more about collaboration than cohesion.
