Elastic Selection.

Compost Records in Munich come through with another volume of Elaste. This second edition strays away from the Baldelli/Cosmic focused material of first volume and follows a more soulful route. The full title of the album is Elaste Volume 02 - Space Disco, and it’s compiled by Tom Wieland of Austrian electronic music project Panoptikum. Another difference from the first volume is the fact that the CD version of this one is mixed. so you get over an hour of top notch, funky stuff that just might get your party bumpin’ or your Saturday night started off right. Wieland chose some choice cuts like Two Man Sound’s classic disco jam, “Que Tal America,” LEB Harmony’s euro disco nugget, “Feeling Love,” and the much sought after (well it will be after people hear this compilation) Frankie Knuckles dub of Chaka Khan’s “Ain’t Nobody.”

This collection dropped in the US on July 29th and should be pretty easy to track down. It’s also released as a double vinyl version and that is possibly import only. Keep an eye peeled for it, it’s a keeper.
