The fusion of hip-hop and electronic music is something that has been
a rising phenomenon for years, although the ability to do it seamlessly
and consistently is the difference between making it and breaking it.
When it comes to the San Diego based group Vokab Kompany, it’s no
wonder they’ve come up with a winning formula. 

Combining the tongue-twisting vocals of Rob Hurt and Burkey Baby
with a live, electric band behind them is what makes them refreshing,
sets them well apart, and raises the bar. And the roof!

The Mint in LA provided the perfect “basement”-type surroundings that
made this night seem like a house party. The bass was pounding, the
temperature was rising, and the fellas ripped through their deep
repertoire while also showcasing some of their latest tracks and
collaborations. Busting out the goods from their VKCE album with
favorites like “Burn It Down”, “Back To The Past” and “Float Away” were
only a few of the night’s peak moments. 

This award-wining group has, over the course of the last few years,
been on an absolute tare. Most recently having completed
collaborations with Solovox on “Kill You With My Sex”, releasing V
Sides: Kollabs and Remixes Vol. 1 with a Stephan Jacobs collab on
“Lazy Hooks”, and dropping a music video for their recent single,
“Where’s My Delorean” shows true flexibility. 

The art of making feel good music that actually makes people feel
good is alive more than ever in this group, and that resonates with a
larger, broader audience. No wonder Vokab Kompany is on fire, and it
doesn’t stop there, as their music is continuing to catch the attention
of major brand and television executives. 

Did I mention their saxophone player can absolutely rip? They have a
classically trained violinist (who wasn’t with them at The Mint), and a
keys player who brings the playful synth sounds to give a true electric
feel. Well it’s all true, and these guys are the real deal. 

The band recently performed on the main stage at SnowGlobe Music Festival in Lake Tahoe. Make sure to keep your eyes and ears open for this
group as they continue their ascension into the new year.

Sept. 13th, 1996: 2Pac - Keep Ya Head Up

“You know it’s funny when it rains it pours. They got money for wars, but they can’t feed the poor. Say there ain’t no hope for the youth and the truth is it ain’t no hope for the future.”

Not only a great video but this “TIME FOR THE SHOW!” is one of my favorite lines from @FutureIslands’ album On The Water. The emotion Sam puts into that line really conveys the emotion their music creates on stage and in the audience

My @future_islands preorder for #Singles arrived with a signed surprise. Added to my proud #vinyl collection. Not only are they a talented group with an energetic & inspiring live show, they have a special place in @zuzubean & I’s hearts #futureislands (at Bungalow XYZ)
