Muallem - Frankie SplitsCompost Records
Munich's DJ Force aka David Muallem delivers his debut album for Compost Records ,and in true tradition it's another album you need in your collection, mixing tempos and styles of new and old, somewhere between Hip Hop and House. The soundtrack provides old skool B-Boy rhythms and electronic dancefloor bombs that will appeal to the kids, especially with those 80's style synthesizers. David has got his ideas set high because he also brought in some heavy-weight vocalists, including Martine Girault, Shawn Lee, Audrey, Lyrics Born, Wordsworth and Beans. With each one he's not gone for the same old sound expected from the specific vocalist; instead he's pushing things forward and trying out new ideas to great effect. Compost's on a winner here.
