Joel Compass – “F**ked Up”

Joel Compass

Black Butter Records has quickly become a favorite label of mine. I came upon this new BBR release from Joel Compass and it’s exactly why I love BBR.  Classic R&B and soul influences over modern dance beats with a bodacious low-end.  The best days of the bleepy, laser-infested bass music might be behind us, but make no mistake, the bass music era is not over and the effects are still being felt.  ”Fucked Up” is a chilled out, hip-hop infused downtempo anthem.  Compass’ use of echo and reverb and repeated vocal bits give an epic feel to this The Weeknd-esque anthem.  That post-relationship song you need right now is here.  And don’t sleep on the Huxley house & bass remix, it’s too groovy.
