The electronic Munich label founded by Michael Reinboth in 1994 had also a major importance in my first years while exploring electronic music.
It all started with early Ninja Tune, i was really drown to Jazz and beats, Trip Hop, Downtempo and then the German broken beats arrived, it was a very importante and logic shift in what i was listening at the time.
The Compost Legacy as an unbelivebel roster of talented people and some of my favroites were, Jazzanova, Beanfield, Native Force, Fauna Flash, Les Gammas, Forest Mighty Black, Rainer Truby Trio and Michael Rütten etc...

The new masterpiece of Maxim Zhestkov Russian based creative director. It gives you time and space to imagine your place inside a 1960's Sci Fi Thriller, very elegant and the sound design is delicious.

Great return from Parisiann space-disco quartet Chateau Marmont, since they remixed Midnight Juggernauts track Into the Galaxy in such a kick ass away that ive been a huge fan. The second EP, Nibiru will come also with a awesome remix from the DFA "Wizzard" Gavin Russom.

Gorgeous music video, Boreas Borealis is taken from Laura Gibson & Ethan Rose 2010 album "Bridge Carols", drone folk.

Watch | Laura Gibson and Ethan Rose - Boreas Borealis

One of the voices that i like the most since i've heard it for the first time, in the collaboration between Fly Lo and Jose James on the track "Vision of Violet".
Jose second album "Blackmagic" is produced with the help of Flying Lotus and is out on Gilles Peterson Brownswood Recordings.
"Blackmagic" and "Made for Love" are sensational.

"Bomb It is the explosive new documentary from award-winning director Jon Reiss investigating the most subversive and controversial art form currently shaping international youth culture: graffiti.
Through interviews and guerilla footage of graffiti writers in action on 5 continents, BOMB IT tells the story of graffiti from its origins in prehistoric cave paintings thru its notorious explosion in New York City during the 70's and 80's, then follows the flames as they paint the globe. Featuring old school legends and current favorites such as Taki 183, Cornbread, Stay High 149, T-Kid, Cope 2, Zephyr, Revs, Os Gemeos, KET, Chino, Shepard Fairey, Revok, and Mear One. This cutting edge documentary tracks down today's most innovative and pervasive street artists as they battle for control over the urban visual landscape. You'll never look at public space the same way again.
BOMB IT has shot in Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Tijuana, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Hamburg, Berlin, Cape Town, São Paulo, and Tokyo"
