Compton White named in the Guardian's Future 50 | News | MN2S

UK producer Compton White has been named as one of the Guardian’s Future 50 in a list of the most exciting independent artists in the world.

Enigmatic producer Compton White has been selected as one of the Guardian’s most exciting independent artists in the world as part of their Future 50 feature.

The producer, hailing from the Isle of Wight and London, was described as a “captivating dance music maker” and “master of nostalgia” by writer Rachael Aroesti in the short profile. His self-titled debut EP, released earlier this year on the Sweet Boys label, was also praised, with the Guardian deeming it as “a masterclass in anything-goes electronica: flitting between hyperactive sampledelica and beautifully unsettling dissonance in the vein of Arca.”

This spotlight is just the latest in a string of praise for Compton White, born Lloyd Whittle. Forward-looking music publications such as The Quietus, Pigeons & Planes, The Fader and Clash Music have also lauded Compton White as one of the finest young producers of his generation.

The producer’s early life is embedded in his music, with track titles like ‘Hounslow’ and cockney pirate radio interludes. His sound is informed by Warp Records-style bass and contemporary R&B, alongside the influence of alternative hip-hop heroes like J Dilla and Madlib, but the result is entirely Whittle’s own.

The Guardian’s Future 50 also features Kanye West favourite Francis and the Lights, mixtape king Little Yachty and Chicago rapper Noname.
