If you’re interested in diving further into the world of dubstep and riddim, look no further than this week’s DJ to Watch: Kompany. This LA-based DJ/producer emerged from anonymity in 2017 to deliver promising and expertly crafted bass music to a global audience. Kompany got his start as a drummer, which helped him first develop an ear for rhythm – a crucial foundation to have for any electronic dance music producer. He went on to attend Icon Collective, the same music school that gave us Jauz, Sullivan King, and many other big names in the industry. After graduating, he landed a job as a sound designer at Cymatics, where he dived deeper into the realm of production. Today, the artist has embarked on a major bus tour with Bear Grillz, PhaseOne, and Dirt Mokey, released several EPs, remixes, and original singles, and has solidified a spot for himself in the world of bass music.
After several collaborations and remixes, Kompany finally made his EP debut on the Never Say Die label with Revolt. The EP features six bangers, two of which are collaborations (“Fuckstorm” with Far Too Loud and “End All” with Tascione).
His most recent single, “Briddim Bomb” with Wooli has seen an insane amount of love from bass fans across the globe. It’s not surprising, as this collaboration shows off his knack for blending versatile sound design with aggressive bass elements.
