If you think the electronica genre has grown a little tiresome, here's something to give it a little juice: komposi003, the third label-showcase compilation from Positron! Records. I was unfamiliar with all of the 11 artists on board, but now I have 11 artists to add to my "watch out for" list. Largely void of vocals, komposi003 fronts a nicely chilled groove overall, though the tracks themselves differ a bit, running the range from IDM to trip-hop. It opens with the jazz-cut/drum-and-bass funk of the aptly named Amish Rake Fight's "Artist with a Thompson," while Chris Randall's thick and humid "Be There Tonight" sounds like the late-night city-driving song of the summer. Aizome's "Terminal" was my favorite track, a Tangerine Dream-esque tune with airport ambience and a ticking-clock beat. With contributions from Milkfish, Micronaut and Scanalyzer, komposi003 proves the indie scene is where tomorrow's electronica stars are currently brewing.
