V/A - Beats, Bites & Öxle (Sonar Kollektiv)
Never one to shy away from a good concept compilation, the imprint that previously brought us Homecooking amongst a raft of non culinary related efforts presents Beats, Bites & Öxle, a celebration of wine, food and Sonar Kollektiv sourced music. This time, extraordinary deck technician and wine aficionado Rainer Trüby has teamed up with Jazzanova to select fourteen musical delicacies to whet the palate for the drinks and dishes selected by six Baden based wineries. Unfortunately, the wine and food doesn’t come with the compilation, but listeners can take heart from choice tracks and the recipes presented by Trüby, Jazzanova and the vineyard bosses. The wines and dishes sound impressive and the varied musical selection includes The Rainer Trüby Trio rejig of Extended Spirit’s piano laced Solid Water, Clara Hill and Vikter Duplaix’s love ode entitled Paperchase and Soulphiction’s delicious Love Thang. The concept may be a little unconventional, but Sonar Kollektiv is not a run of the mill imprint and there’s plenty to satisfy your musical hunger.
