Despite being busy starting up his own label in 2017, Compa still found time to ready a trio of heavyweight dubs for his latest Deep Medi drop. Not A Kick perfectly balances the soundsystem grime flex Compa has been on recently with the stuttering bassweight of recent Deep Medi drops by Gantz and Egoless. The name of the title cut is a total red herring - rather than featuring no kick, the bass beats on this one are big enough to blow speaker cones. ‘Hallucinogen’ hovers between dubstep half-times and a 140 riddim in a manner reminiscent of Kahn’s best work. Closer ‘Commandment’, with its pummelling low-end, comes across like the cousin of Mala’s Deep Medi classic ‘Changes’.
