Compost is nothing if not consistent. The label is known for churning out classy, sophisticated nu-jazz/broken beat/house tunes at an alarming rate, and Daniel Magg’s Facets is another fine example. The former Worldless People member’s solo debut fits well with the long-established Compost sound, and really breaks no new ground. Still, with all the shimmering, soulful and danceable tunes on here, the album is by no means typical. With a host of guest artists popping up here and there (Minus 8, Wolfgang R?ter and Gentlerain), Magg keeps the tempo up and the bassline groovy, and piles on just the right amount of leftfield flavor.
