Starting in Brooklyn tomorrow, UK dubstep aficionado Compa begins his tour of the US and Canada. By the looks of his Twitter feed he’s already on the plane and, honestly, you Yanks and Canucks should be proper excited for his arrival!
For those who don’t know, Manchester-based Compa has been residing in the rainy city since 2010; moving here for University and swiftly landing a residency with Just Skank where he met the likes of Coki, Hatcha, Mala and Pinch and blossomed within the local bass music scene.
Since debuting on Get Darker TV in early 2011 and releasing his infamous bootleg of Mavado’s ‘Dem A Talk,’ he has gone on to drop releases on the likes of Deep Medi, Killa Sound, Boka, Tuba, Los Dubs, Area Recordings, Redshift One, Kokeshi and his own vinyl-only label WR/WX (We Are Wax) as well as playing DJ sets the world over.
Having recently released the heavyweight track ‘Blood Loss’ for free via Get Darker in celebration of his imminent tour, starting from tomorrow Compa will play venues in New York, Montreal, Florida, Ottowa, Detroit and more, as well as linking up with Joe nice for a back-to-back on Sub FM and a show in Baltimore with bass music kingpins Youngsta and Seven.
