Kompany offers a helping of begrimed bass with “Trash Talk,” the first single off his forthcoming EP on Disciple Recordings.
Kompany is an artist who is well-known to dubstep devotees with a discography full of releases across labels like Circus Records, Firepower Records, and Never Say Die, all of which grab attention and refuse to let go. Recent releases alongside the likes of Spag Heddy, Bossfight, and Kai Wachi have only further showcased his strong foundation and efforts to push into varying realms of bass.
Bold, brazen, and intentionally aggressive, Kompany is proven time and time again that he has the ability to amp up the energy across massive crowds, and his vast technical ability has been on display following several production-heavy shows alongside Dion Timmer on the Project:Parallels tour. While a slew of festival performances at Bass Canyon, Lost Lands, and Tomorrowland Brasil are on the horizon, today, he’s shifted his focus with the announcement of his upcoming EP on Disciple Recordings.
“Trash Talk” is the first single to arrive off the forthcoming EP and instantly gives listeners an idea of what’s to come from the bass maestro; utter filth. A darkened psychedelic riff exits as quickly as it enters while drums drive into a subdivision of the beat. A steady increase in bpm brings Kompany’s brew to a boiling point within the first minute of the track.
Despite the drilling drum patterns, stealthy builds take their time to drop fully (the best kind of tease in a live crowd). Only in a mid-track breakdown is any semblance of chill exhibited, and it rapidly succumbs to an even grimier rise while formidable vocal cuts command a sense of order where everything else remains fiery and controlled solely by Kompany.
