Andy Compton of The Rurals (Peng Records) has created a reputation as one of the best and most prolific Deep House producers in the business.
Here he comes with a brand new sound that is really close to his heart.
COMPTON is a Soul/Funk/Jazz project that boasts the very best musicians from the West Coast like Charlie Hearnshaw , Jeff Bass, Pete Mo, Andy Barton and Alex Pamplin along with guest vocals from amazing soul artists from around the world including: Jaidene Veda, Ladybird, Diviniti and Kafele (all House legends in their own right).
This project is quite interesting because it showcases another side to these artists’ talents. Taking inspiration from it’s urban LA name sake, you can hear COMPTON’s musical influences from The Crusaders, Shuggie Otis, Isaac Hayes, Leroy Hutson, War, Marvin Gaye and of course James Brown. This project represents the next level in Soul music with real organic musicianship and production.
The result is quite simply a modern classic!
