"Vokab Kompany is another act that refuses to be pigeonholed. Two MCs might lead you to believe that it's hip hop, but that doesn't begin to tell the story. The seven-piece band from San Diego played for more than an hour, a set that was at times funky, jazzy, heavy, bouncy, even bluegrassy...And it all made sense. Through it all, the crowd was treated to microphonic gymnastics of the dueling MCs, Rob Hurt and Burkey. The group is legit; see them"
- Lindol French (Sacramento Press)
With relentless drive they have worked to combine high energy stage performances, 7 piece live indie electro hip-hop (w/ a violinist to boot), with catchy hooks, and rhythm based harmonic vocal delivery to find themselves emerging from an underground electronic scene that primarily embraces the DJ.
While they still have an edge and integrity in their writing process and production, their songs have mass appeal. It's a sound that has deep indie roots, with forays into soul, funk and fresh west coast hip hop laced over a unique sound, all performed live!
