Andy Compton has generally turned heads and twisted bodies with his thumping brew of electronic beats swathed in coolly-crafted melodies, with Peng becoming one of the premiere labels on the planet, garnering support from house big-hitters like Louie Vega, Larry Heard, Mark Farina and Osunlade.
Ubuntu is Andy Compton’s latest masterpiece, Ubuntu meaning “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity”
Andy’s move to Bristol,UK has had a heavy influence to his sound, as he’s now using more local vocalists and musicians, bringing some new flavours.
The album features vocalists Celestine, Ziyon, Nathaniel Lewis, Diviniti & Eric King, Sabrina Chyld, Ladybird, and Rowan.
The vibe moves from the soulful sound you’d expect from The Rurals to the deeper edge of Andy’s house productions, taking you on a beautiful musical journey.
