Location: Das Werk Wien

Event Info:

Following his debut appearance on Get Darker TV in March 2011, Compa released his inaugural 12" single with one of Dubstep's foundation imprints Boka Records, along with his infamous bootleg of Mavado’s ‘Dem A Talk', and at the tender age of just 21, he signed to the institutional Dubstep record label Deep Medi Musik releasing his highly sought after dubplate 'Alpha' backed with 'Narabeh' in 2013.

Flash-forward five years and now a well travelled DJ, Compa remains true to the roots of the genre, armed with a deep bag of dubplates as he remains one of the only remaining vinyl and dub plate DJs in the underground.

Hailing from North London and growing up in a music-centric family, Capo Lee has music flowing through his veins. At the young age of 16, Capo was already mixing on vinyls and DJing on AX Fm, alongside DJ Scope. His cousin then played him a Nasty Crew tape, giving him his first taste of grime, and Capo was hooked. Starting to explore grime, Capo became influenced by artists like Mac 10, Nasty Crew and Begg, and started to dabble in mixing grime music. Once he had conquered behind the decks, he made his way to the front of the stage: as an MC.

His tune Ain’t The Same landed a placement on the Grime Forum Compilation after Capo had sent the tune to his friend Kwam. After seeing the positive response his track received, Capo began to build relationships with DJs, attending sets regularly at underground radio stations to practice his skills on the mic. Having already kicked off things on a strong start there was no doubt that 2016 was going to be a promising year for Capo Lee. The single MUD ft D Double E was released on RINSE label reaching #1 on the electronic iTunes charts and #50 in the official charts. With the EPs "Stop Talk" and "Capo the Champ" produced by Sir Spyro since then, as well as collaborations with Wiley, P Money, Safone and Jammz amongst others Capo Lee is making it known that he’s here to stay and the throne is his for the taking.

„GHOST” erscheint am 20.11.2018 über Duzz Down San, am 30.11. werden die 11 neuen Tracks live präsentiert. Die Produktionen kommen von OH91 (Bristol; White Peach/Coyote), Dubape (Deep, Dark & Dangerous, Mainframe), Mirac (Duzz Down San), alllone (Greynote/Duzz Down San) DMG (Sub Audio) und von P.tah selbst. Auf ihrem ersten gemeinsamen Projekt zeigen die zwei Veteranen als Vorreiter im deutschsprachigen Raum eine authentische Variante von Grime, in der sich P.TAHs deutsch- und KINETICALs englischsprachige Raps in Abwechslung perfekt ergänzen. Beide MCs finden sich zurzeit auf der selben musikalischen Wellenlänge wieder: In der kontemporären Bassmusic nach britischem Vorbild verbinden sich all ihre Einflüsse zu einem kohärenten Ganzen. Versatzstücke aus HipHop, Dub, Garage oder Dancehall finden in der elektonischen Subkultur ganz natürlich ihren Platz und enfalten live ihre Wirkung.

Bei den gemeinsamen Tracks von P.TAH und KINETICAL stehen die technischen Skills und die Qualität der Delivery im Vordergrund, nicht zuletzt als wohltuender Kontrast zur sprachlichen Beliebigkeit im aktuellen Rap-Mainstream. Dabei kommt den Liveperformances eine besondere Bedeutung zu, die vom Sessioncharakter nächtelanger Sound System-Parties und der Freude am live Rappen beider Protagonisten geprägt sind.
