Biography

KOMPRESSOR (born 1979) is an industrial hip hop artist and the alter-ego of Andreas K. from Washington Court House, Ohio, United States. KOMPRESSOR later revealed himself to be Drew, the author of the popular Toothpaste For Dinner daily webcomic and blog.[1]

KOMPRESSOR’s music is self-described as: “KOMPRESSOR sound is hard and angry, good words used for song and electronic.” KOMPRESSOR’s work is often viewed as parody, but has also been widely recognized as legitimate and catchy synth-pop in its own right.

History and persona

KOMPRESSOR began in 2000, when Drew began recording songs under the Kompressor name and putting songs, and videos of the songs, up for free download. The songs became popular over the ensuing years, leading to four albums.

KOMPRESSOR is depicted in his albums and videos wearing a strange alien mask, usually with a black leather jacket and black gloves. He proclaims to be from Bremen, Germany, to speak English as a second language, and some of his songs are in German, or have some German lyrics.
