Vokab Kompany is a genre-defying collection of sound comprised of vocalists Rob Hurt and Burke Baby. With live accompaniments by their five-piece band, they use heavy synths, guitars, saxophone, bass and drums to create an innovative sound that blankets audiences and leaves them in a musical stupor. While maintaining a rigorous touring schedule, the San Diego natives have also found themselves as hometown favorites, garnering recognition at the San Diego Music Awards and winning several awards including best Hip Hop album and best Hip Hop performance. An interesting feat for a band that could just as easily be called Electronic, Funk, Jam or Rap in the same breath.
"A sound who's genre goes something like hip-hop, soul, electro, funk. You have two Emcee's who charge sped-up lyrical flows; made to sound effortless... seamless synergy with their voices and their lyrics are playfully vivacious and positive... layered with creative electro beats." - Sam Dorman NBC
"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 sevenpiece 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
