Straight from the streets of Temecula, California, Kompany is the first to admit that his early love of skateboarding and drumming served as the perfect foundation for his emergence as one of bass music’s rising stars. After getting his feet wet with a stint at the esteemed Icon Collective Music Production School, the former head sound designer of Cymatics.fm has translated his technical skills into a vision of dancefloor destruction that is out of this world.
From his early success with remixes of NGHTMRE’s “Touch” and collaborative “Badlands” with Nitti Gritti, on through to the present where the ever-impressive sound of Kompany has found its way to Datsik’s legendary Firepower imprint, it should be obvious by now that Kompany is here to crush!
Don’t just take our word for it; check the way Kompany brings on the slow burn on “Eclipse,” pulled from his forthcoming Take Aim EP. From a deep and deadly intro that takes its time building up the tension through a swirling and seductive cinematic sweep, the dark mood quickly shifts gears when Kompany starts turning up the heat and spiraling things to the breaking point. Once the drop hits, it’s as if the apocalypse has been ushered in from above, as the atom-splitting power of the bottom-end shreds its way across a groove that’s sure to have you and the squad bouncing off the walls.
“I’ve been sitting on this song for well over a year now, and have been keeping it as a weapon for my live sets,” Kompany tells Insomniac. “I’m very happy to see this go to a good home with Firepower, and can’t wait to see what everyone thinks.”
Whether you’re a tier-one DJ or just want to bump this one in your ride, be sure to add it to your heavyweight arsenal, as Kompany’s “Eclipse” is no doubt a sign of the madness still to come.
Available November 3 via Firepower.
