How did I do that ha. Either way I got to watch it and thank him afterward. Amazing human being. Absolutely phenomenal!
Vokab Kompany is the stage name of two Emcee/Vocalists from San Diego, CA. For their live shows they are backed by a 4 piece band that interprets the more Hip-Hop albums as a fully live experience. This combination creates a truly unique show consisting of multiple synths/keys with bass/drums and a violin to create a sound that doesn’t quite adhere to a specific genre. Vokab Company has worked with a long list of heavy hitters. Their new album, VKCE, a collaboration effort with up and coming production/ musician duo Crush Effect (featuring members of Funk/Jamband legend Karl Denson’s TIny Universe) on “VKCE” filling a void at the intersection of the hip-hop and EDM worlds. ‘VKCE’ is Hip-hop, it’s electronic, it’s indie - it’s a shout out to the past, and a taste of the future. Vokab Kompany’s Matt Burke describes the experience: “As musicians, it’s an ever evolving world; genres are a thing of the past, so we (VK) were really lucky to have teamed up with producers that pushed the boundaries of our boxes. We got outside our comfort zone, stamped a VK next to CE, and the result was something new entirely.” The brazenly dynamic sound on VKCE has quickly garnered the attention of television and film. The record already has two national commercials, for a major carmaker (debuting 2013) and Southern Comfort. The album debuted at #47 on the iTunes hip-hop charts, behind only major-label releases from T.I. and Chief Keef among all hip-hop records released that week. The team has been blessed with a slew of great press. In addition to a feature on electronic music in the August print edition of SPIN, and “climbing” George Washington Bridge with Al Roker, the band has won best hip-hop group at the San Diego Music Awards for three years in a row, and even impressed Prince Charles when he stopped by Solana Beach’s Belly Up to catch a VK show. To see the show that impressed British Royalty, come on down to the Catalyst main stage on October 10th for the Santa Cruz Music Festival Pre Party, for now enjoy their video for the track “Dont Owe You” http://tinyurl.com/m3frwup
