LR023 Knx. – Buttrskotch Total Runtime 11.2 min SOLD OUT
Knx. (born-name Glen Boothe, aka Knxwledge, the bandcamp king of the beat-scene ). Raised in central New Jersey, blossomed further in Philadelphia, now dialing-it-in at home in L.A. with the first official Knx. cassette.
Three years after ‘standthis‘ (LR001), the elusive and visionary dak returns with a formidable double dose of electronic abstractions and psychedelic hip-hop. The visual accompaniments set the scene: ‘youstandit’ hovers above a chaotic jumble of wires and machinery, all post-idm paranoia and claustrophobic detroit futurism, while ‘leftrecord’ shows a lush green overgrowth, encompassing the gritty, unconventional and untamed rhythms and textures of the natural world. ‘youstandit / leftrecord’ finds dak walking the blurry line between these two starkly different, yet disconcertingly similar environments– untangling, hacking, and digging his way through many dense layers in pursuit of a beautiful and harmonious peace underneath.
