Watch out for another Londoner underground superstar on the fast track to fame. Having just released his 4 track debut EP “Astronaut” on Black Butter, the 20 year old singer, songwriter and producer Joel Compass from London is on the rise. The blogosphere already loves him (his debut track “Back to Me” scored over 30,000 SoundCloud plays and 150,000 YouTube views in just one week), Zane Lowe made “Run” this week’s hottest record, and the Guardian fittingly calls him the “UK equivalent to The Weeknd”.
We guarantee you that this talent is huge before the year is over!
Heavily influenced by the above mentioned as well as Frank Ocean, Compass is part of a new generation of soul singers – cleverly blurring the lines between soul, R&B and electronic music, while always conveying an emotional vulnerability and candidness that probably not even Walter White would be able to withstand.
Indisputably, Joel Compass is litteraly on the edge of breakthrough and about to hit his stride and believe me: you want to be there when he does!
