Compa
Compa
"Since his debut-appearance on GetDarker TV, March 2011, Followed by a recent guest-show on Rinse Fm, airplay on BBC Radio 1xtra and his "Dem A Talk" record selling out worldwide five days after official release, Compa has been blowing people away with his perpetually deep, dark and heavy Dubstep sound.

Already gaining residency at the 'Just Skank' nights in Manches
ter (not forgetting his residency with the infamous Bass Camp club night and on top of running his own club night and vinyl-only record label, WR/WX) he has played next to a countless number of Dubstep icons - Kromestar, Silkie, Quest, Mala, Coki, Cyrus, Tunnidge, Darkside, J:Kenzo, Lx-One, Pinch, Goth-Trad, Breakage, Benton, Joe Nice, Synkro, Vivek, Truth, Kryptic Minds, Biome, Commodo, Oneman, Chef, The Others, Cluekid and many others...

Compa's unrivalled rise in the ranks stands tall and is backed with an infinite arsenal of dubplates. This is a man who truly embodies the vinyl culture, sacrificing his appetite, by funding the custom pressing of his acetates. The time and dedication that this man puts into his productions, DJing and appearances is truly inspiring. On top of his already MASSIVE plate, Compa makes time to host his radio show every Wednesday 2-4pm on Sub.fm.

Listening to Compa's music will take your mind through a history lesson on Dubstep as his sounds can be categorized with those of Mala, Loefah, and even early Skream. The greatest thing about his sounds is that they are as fresh and new as they are classic and timeless. Rather than just imitate the sounds of Dubsteps foundation, Compa has been able to build upon those foundations with the innovative and unique attributes in his music."
Kahn
Kahn
Hailing from Bristol (U.K) and having grown up immersed in the city's renowned culture of sound systems, punk rock and hip hop; Kahn is at the forefront of the new wave of Bristol producers and DJs.

From his first vinyl releases in 2011 on cult record label Punch Drunk Records to his more recent cuts on Mala's Deep Medi label, Kahn has established himself as one of the most diverse producers of his generation.

His production style tends to draw influence from dub reggae, early 2000's grime, digital dancehall, UK steppers and music from across the 140bpm spectrum. As part of the Young Echo collective, Kahn has also explored other areas of electronic music and incorporates his own vocals and instrumentation into his sound.
