Music of the ‘Cac Artists Feature: Compson Sound
The moment you plug in to Hamilton’s own Compson Sound you are rushed with excitement. Familiar melodies matched with pop lyrics and the driving beat that makes you want to dance. Named from Faulkner’s magnum opus The Sound & The Fury (how ‘Cac-y), this rising Hamilton senior has been creating mashups for roughly six months. After reaching out to powerhouse masher KapSlap and refining his sound he recently released his first EP, The Fourth Course.
This Hamiltonian has created a collection of progressive and house tracks mashed up with some of the most epic pop anthems of our time, and he truly has an ear for what makes a good mashup. Systematic drops and anthemic constructions make these songs immensely fun. Moreover, while the songs are easy to connect with and jam to–they don’t sound over thought and predictable. Smart, yet creative, he absolutely sounds like a ‘Cac-Kid.
We at InTheCac connected with Compson Sound by complete accident. After hearing his mashup of Alesso’s Calling and One Direction’s What Makes You Beautiful on Hypem, we featured him on our first summer playlist. Luckily, some of his friends at Hamilton reached out and the rest is history.
Key Tracks: Don’t Stop the One That Got Away (Madeon vs. Katy Perry vs. Rihanna vs. Journey), A Deeper Crush on Toulouse (Nicky Romero vs. Aretha Franklin vs. Bingo Players vs. Nero), and Might Be Katy Perry’s Violence (Feed Me vs. Amanda Blank vs. Dada Life)
