“Since his debut-appearance on GetDarker TV, March 2011, Followed by arecent guest-show on Rinse Fm, airplay on BBC Radio 1xtra and his “Dem
A Talk” record selling out worldwide just days after official release, Compa has been blowing people away with his perpetually deep, dark and heavy Dubstep sound.
Already gaining residency at the ‘Just Skank‘ nights in Manchester(not forgetting residencies with Bass Camp and on top of running his own club night, record label and mix series – WR/WX) he has playednext to a countless number of Dubstep icons – Kromestar, Silkie, Quest, Mala, Coki, Cyrus, Tunnidge, Darkside, J:Kenzo, Lx-One, Pinch, Goth-Trad, Breakage, Benton, Joe Nice, Synkro, Vivek, Truth, Kryptic Minds, Biome, Commodo, Oneman, Chef, The Others, Cluekid and many others…
With a sound that is perpetually nostalgic, yet equally refreshing, and heavy enough to shock the toughest of sound systems, Compa’s music displays a binary relationship between ‘Foundation Sound’ homage and Forward-Motion thought. Spacious textures, heavily built sub-frequencies and intricate execution of minimalism are but a few significant ways in which his music can be described.
The Compa sound has received acclaim from across the board with key influences like BBC 6 Music’s Gilles Peterson & Nerm showing praise, as well as J:Kenzo and B-Traits on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra, not forgetting Jay 5ive and N-Type amongst others on the prestigious Rinse Fm. Tracks have even found their way into the record bags of scene pioneers Mala (Deep Medi, DMZ), Chase & Status (Ram, Mercury, Renegade Hardware) and US Dubstep Ambassador, Joe Nice (Dub War, Reconstrvct).
Whilst operating his own white label series, WX/WL, you can still catch Compa live on Sub FM every other Monday 12pm-2pm GMT.
