Compa - Outer Lines / Timelapse

Recording info

TUBA presents our seventh release with a lesson in
deep UK bass from Compa; and represents our
continuing efforts to foster the bridge between the
US and UK deep dubstep scenes.
Outer Lines presents with a compelling blend of
texture, atmosphere, and melody. The introduction
builds to a shuddering, pulsing bass heavy drop
with heavy percussive accents. A growling sub and
driving beat provide the framework for distant flutes
and jagged congas to carry the listener deeper into
a defining dose of what bass music truly is.
Timelapse opens with a quirky yet edgy synth riff
that leads into a buzzing texture of deep bass.
Analog synthesizers deliver the rest of the message
as their rich textures and lines tell an epic, dark, and emotional story.

Following his debut appearance on Get Darker TV
in March 2011, Compa released his inaugural 12inch
single with one of Dubstep's foundation imprints
Boka Records (Tracks 'Sentence' and 'Beginning'),
and his infamous bootleg of Mavado's 'Dem A Talk'
on his own vinyl-only WX/WL imprint, and at the
tender age of just 21, he's been newly signed to
Mala's Deep Medi label and New York's deep bass
label TUBA.
Compa's music displays a binary relationship
between 'Foundation Sound' homage and Forward-
Motion thought. Spacious textures, heavily built subfrequencies and intricate execution of minimalism
are but a few significant ways in which his music
can be described.

TUBA is an artist-run vinyl imprint based in
Brooklyn, specializing in forward-thinking bass
music. TUBA pushes new releases from the finest
producers on the contemporary bass music scene.
Roster includes J:Kenzo, Truth, DJG, Compa,
Moldy, Daega Sound, Juss B, Subreachers, & DOperation Drop
