Knxwledge: 1988 (Stream)

Another great record which saw its release on Friday, is the latest album from Knxwledge. The LA producer has been teasing us with little bursts of instrumental brilliance in the run up to the album’s release, with the full project harbouring a lot more gold within. 1988 is an instrumental album for the most part, save for a couple of sublime exceptions, including a new NxWorries joint as Anderson Paak jumps on board for itkanbe[so nice]. There is also vocal support on the closing track, with Knxwledge enlisting Durand Bernarr and Rose Gold for minding_my business. You can hear the album in full below, with physicals available via Stones Throw. Continue reading “Knxwledge: 1988 (Stream)”

Knxwledge: Don’t Be Afraid

Knxwledge returns with another insight into his forthcoming album, thanks to this new video which features two of the cuts. Don’t Be Afraid is up first, with a pretty heavy 90’s RnB feel thanks in part to the vocals he’s used, before it drifts into [bc] tm_s not promised, which stands as more of an interlude and is backed up by some nice souful keys. The album, 1988, is due for release on Stones Throw on 27 March. The video was made by Rhymezlikedimez.

Knxwledge: Learn / Howtokope

It’s been announced that Knxwledge has a new album en route and to coincide with the news, the Grammy award-winning producer has treated us to two singles from the project. 1988 is only the second album from Knxwledge since his official 2015 debut, Hud Dreems, despite having worked on a bevy of high-calibre projects in the meantime, including TPAB and NxWorries. The album is due for release on Stones Throw on 27 March and pre-orders for the vinyl edition are available now. Continue reading “Knxwledge: Learn / Howtokope”

Homeboy Sandman & Edan: The Gut

As the release date for Humble Pi fast approaches, Homeboy Sandman and Edan have just offered up another video from the album. The Gut sees the duo submerged underwater – for real & not so real – as Sands delivers his verse over another very Edan-esque beat, with the producer also making a welcome return to the mic. Humble Pi is due for release on 26 October on Stones Throw.

Homeboy Sandman & Edan: #NeverUseTheInternetAgain

As the much deserved anticipation continues to build for the collaborative album from Homeboy Sandman and Edan, the duo have released a video for #NeverUseTheInternetAgain. The audio for the track first surfaced back in April, before they had announced that they were working on an album together. The video features Edan and Sands working in a computer repair shop together, but one you might want to think twice about using. Keep an eye out for cameo(s) too. The album itself, Humble Pi, is due for release on 26 October via Stones Throw.

Homeboy Sandman & Edan: Grim Seasons

Yesterday Stones Throw announced the release date for the long-awaited album from Homeboy Sandman and Edan. The two started working together a few years ago, after meeting at a show they were both performing at, which lead to Edan producing the track Talking (Bleep) on Sandman’s 2016 Kindness for Weakness LP.
Now they have returned with a full-length project, with Edan behind the production and Sandman handling the raps. Grim Seasons is the first taste from the album, with Sandman weaving complex bars over a crazy beat from Edan. It’s all tied together with a great animated video from Kagan McLeod. The album, Humble Pi, is due for release on 26 October.
