Various Artists I Like It
- Words: Tim Pratt
- Label: Compost
Germany's Compost has tossed traditional DJ-mix compilations out on their collective ear, at least temporarily. On I Like It, four veteran DJs pick their four all-time favorite songs. On this first go-round, Compost's picks are eclectic, to say the least: Munich's electro-loving DJ Hell, Austrian producer/DJ Peter Kruder (Tosca, K&D), Compost figurehead Michael Reinboth (Beanfield), and Munich DJ Theo Thonnessen (Into Somethin'). The results are interesting-many of the artists' picks are obscure tunes from the '80s and '90s, and the accompanying information cards are enjoyable reads. However, the disjointed, non-mixed format isn't necessarily compelling enough to warrant more than a few listens.
