Listen to Kompany – New Reign EP on Spotify:
New Reign begins with “Rapture” and its tranquil harmonizing intro. A slight buildup turns up the intensity before plunging into guttural clamoring. This track is a ticking time bomb waiting to erupt into delectably gross scrap metal bass shrapnel.
Energy is high by the time “Rapture” leads into the second track on New Reign entitled “Override”. The wubs get a little wonky in this one with each wet bass bobble. It’s a mixture between the experimental side of bass and trap, meshing together to create a wonder of a track.
If you thought the headbanging began and ended with “Rapture”, you will be pleasantly surprised with the third track on New Reign. “Stomp” vomits crunchy bass jabs that are filthily chaotic yet beautifully precise. Traversing through gooey soundscapes, “Stomp” is bass sludge that’s simultaneously weird and heavy, making it one heavy-hitter of a track.
New Reign wraps up with “Buck”, a murderous titan of a tune cutting down everything in its path. Each maniacal swipe off a bass sword is clean-cut, biting with an unmatched volcanic exactitude. A brief whimsical interlude ties each blistering bass detonation together with ease. “Buck” ends with a haunting orchestral bit, leaving you in awe of what reckless endeavor New Reign sent you on.
