Christian Prommer, Roland Appel and Rainer Trüby are part of the Compost family since the very beginning. Roland and Chris are famous for their Fauna Flash (Aquarius, Fusion, Confusion) releases as well as for their Voom : Voom project together with Vienna mastermind Peter Kruder. As few people might know Christian and Roland are both drummers, and used to play in competing Munich school-bands, later they both worked as professional musicians for various studio jobs, before they finally joined forces. Rainer was member of Compost act A Forest Mighty Black, and also made himself a name as superb compiler, as he did compilations for Nuphonic (Root Down 99), Talkin Loud (Talkin Jazz 3, with Gilles Peterson), and of course for Compost Records the Brazilian flavoured Glücklich series (Vol. 1 – 5). After all, most famous is Rainer for his DJ-ing. He already played at all the important underground venues in the world and his monthly club night “Root Down” in Freiburg, Germany, is very well known and was already home to many guest DJs such as Gilles Peterson, Kruder & Dorfmeister or 4 Hero. Gilles Peterson chose Rainer Trüby as his favourite DJ in his personal Top 3 DJ-Charts in DJ Magazine and Muzik. Rainer was also nominated for “Best DJ” at the German Dance Awards.
