J:Kenzo's Artikal Music imprint introduces the newest release from UK's low-end driven producer, Compa, entitled Take Control / Crack Chimes (ARTKL023). The release contains two tracks featuring vocalist Fox, both of which boast an unexpected hybrid dubstep/trap/grime style from the dubstep purist. Fusing together his love for dubstep's spacey, atmospheric elements with the harshness of grime and the fluidity and cold synths of rap music, Compa's new Artikal release represents both the evolution and versatility of his bass laden sound. While "Take Control" showcases Compa's ability to produce an instrumental track that best compliments and accentuates the attributes of his vocalist, Fox, "Crack Chimes" is a tastefully spacious, floor rattling, hi-hat filled lesson in subdued style and undeniable swag.
