VOKAB KOMPANY Release New Album – QUIT SLEEP – April 22, 2011


VOKAB KOMPANY is high energy, 7 piece, indie-electro-hip hop. Combining catchy hooks with rhythmic harmonic flow, the capabilities of 22nd century electronics-channeled through classically trained keys and violin, deep baselines and driving rhythms. VOKAB KOMPANY pulsates throughout listeners for hours after a shows end, leaving their weary bodies immobilized, and their fingers rapidly working the computer to download their latest music. Their studio work has ranged from songs with Killah Priest of the Wu Tang Clan to members of Cage the Elephant, and from Luckyiam of the Living Legends as well as Aplus of the Hyroglyphics.

Markalan - Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Markalan moved to Pacific Beach in 1994. During his first four years in San Diego, he worked as a photographer for the United States Navy. Over the past decade, he's been behind the bar or turntables in many of San Diego's nightclubs, and venues. He's shared his musical selections with Southern & Baja California, and the Mayan Riviera. During these years, he could be found exchanging his time for vinyl at Groove Records and Siesta Records. 

He often worked for trade, to support his vinyl addiction. He currently owns over 8,000 records. "Listening to my father's albums is when it all began. Flipping through the stacks, cleaning off the LP, placing the needle on the record, reading the lyrics, studying the artwork, and enjoying the rich analog sound. Sure, there are occasional pops & you might have to clean the record. You actually have to flip the record at the end of the side. It's not a play list or program on shuffle. You are present, involved, and engaged in the listening process. 
Please Keep Vinyl Alive & Support Local Artists!"
