A TAV Curator’s Pick.

Knxwledge (pronounced “knowledge”) is a 26 year old, Los Angeles based beat maker making his debut on Stones Throw, in 2015, with the album Hud Dreems – 26 tracks of instrumental hip-hop.

Standing out in a sea of producers rising from the L.A. beat scene, the prolific artist and record collector produces his sound by creating a pastiche of soul, jazz and hip-hop that melts together in a style uniquely his own. He has produced for hip-hop powerhouse Kendrick Lamar on To Pimp a Butterfly, for Joey Badass on 1999, and has released dozens of remix and beat tape collections on his Bandcamp. He calls these his “light work.”

Knx has found a home on Stones Throw’s roster, working closely with Mndsgn and with Anderson Paak in an R&B/hip-hop collaboration as NxWorries, whose debut album will be released later this year.” - Knxwledge.BandCamp.com

“By definition, Hud Dreems is an instrumental release, yet the producer skillfully arranges these verbal fragments to liven the procession. In doing so, the album breezes through golden-era rap and R&B while remaining very much in the now. It properly showcases Boothe’s wide-ranging sonic palate and offers a hearty glimpse into musical yesteryear. As a result, Hud Dreems feels remarkably nostalgic. It’s a fully realized effort, bridging a gap between older and younger listeners, and serving as a nice starting point for new Knxwledge consumers. If Kendrick brought you here, Hud Dreems will make you stay for a while.” - Pitchfork
