Sometimes you actually can convince an organization who doesn’t normally focus in your genre to give you the time of day. Who knew? This week we have a special treat, the brand new Small Viktories LP from Vokab Kompany over on Gravitas Recordings. While Gravitas is primarily an electronic music label, Vokab Kompany’s unique blend of hip-hop with clear electronic influence piqued their interest. With a career spanning around a decade, these San Diego-based producers have been absolutely killing it since 2011. Vokab was the first hip-hop band to be nominated for “Album of the Year” at the San Diego Music Awards, as well as returning to win “Best Hip Hop Band” in 2011, 2012, 2015, and 2018. Vokab Kompany isn’t just an acclaimed band no one has heard of, as they have made their mark on touring with direct support for the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Cee Lo Green, and Cage The Elephant.
Vokab Kompany takes plenty of creative liberties throughout Small Viktories, with each track being an alternate style for Vokab to fully explore. Diving deep into themes such as romantic intimacy, political commentary, altruistic feels, and even the traditional party anthem, Small Viktories has plenty of variety for you to enjoy. For a quick taste we checked out “Like That” and its accompanying music video which gives us an example of Vokab’s flow and comedic aesthetic. Each track is connected with the band’s hip hop beats and electronic soundscape, clearly letting us know that these two genres belong together.
Make sure you check out the new music video below or the full LP on Spotify!
