Andy Compton (The Rurals, Peng Records) Interview

 

Since the very early days of untitledmusic, Andy Compton and his Peng Records have been supporters, much played and enjoyed names. His soulful viewpoint on deeper house sounds fuse jazzy influences, live musicians and a strong history of glorious vocals. His global appeal takes him worldwide, especially South Africa. Over the years he’s turned heads and twisted bodies with his thumping brew of electronic beats swathed in coolly-crafted melodies, with Peng becoming one of the premiere labels on the planet, garnering support from house big-hitters like Louie Vega, Larry Heard, Mark Farina and Osunlade.

 

Good to catch up Andy - it’s been a long time! We first met each other waaaay back in the early Peng Days when UM was just a printed fanzine - how about we start with you telling us how you got to starting the label?
