We are proud to announce another new signing to the Reprise Publishing roster – Compa
Since his debut-appearance on GetDarker TV, March 2011, Followed by a recent guest-show on Rinse Fm, airplay on BBC Radio 1xtra and his “Dem A Talk” record selling out worldwide five 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, Archive and on top of running his own club night and vinyl-only record label, WR/WX) he has played next 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…
Compa’s unrivalled rise in the ranks stands tall and is backed with an infinite arsenal of dubplates. This is a man who truly embodies the vinyl culture, sacrificing his appetite, by funding the custom pressing of his acetates. The time and dedication that this man puts into his productions, DJing and appearances is truly inspiring. On top of his already MASSIVE plate, Compa makes time to host his radio show every Wednesday 2-4pm on Sub.fm.
Listening to Compa’s music will take your mind through a history lesson on Dubstep as his sounds can be categorized with those of Mala, Loefah, and even early Skream. The greatest thing about his sounds is that they are as fresh and new as they are classic and timeless. Rather than just imitate the sounds of Dubsteps foundation, Compa has been able to build upon those foundations with the innovative and unique attributes in his music.
