komposi003:

The CD is great collection of electronica tracks and will introduce most listeners to some artists they haven't heard before. While the CD jumps from style to style, it's all creative stuff, and a refreshing alternative to standard remix collections and four-on-the-floor dance compilations.

In fact, you'll find a surprising variety of beats and styles on the CD. Amish Rake Fight turns in a jazz influenced techno number, "Artist With a Thompson," which combines stand-up bass and trumpet with jagged machine beats.

The track gets the CD off to a great start, but there are many more highlights. Milkfish's "Shame" is glitch-filled but grooves; Bounte reworks 80's-tronica with "Going Nowhere," and Chris Randall contributes a vaguely Floyd-esque rock waltz, "Be There Tonight."

Atomica's "Airways" is another waltz, putting Lauren Cheatham's gorgeous vocals over a mix of jazzy keyboards, drums and weird electronic goodness. Sister Machine Gun wraps up the CD with "Sink," a scorching techno song.

All in all, komposi003 starts strong, hits a lot of highpoints and closes strong, showcasing some great new talent along the way.
