Los Angeles beat maker Knxwledge announces his brand new album ‘Hud Dreems’, which is set for release Friday 22nd May 2015 on Stones Throw through Inertia.

Listen to the first track “Jstowee”

‘Hud Dreems’ is a 26-track album of instrumental hip-hop, and marks Knxwledge’s (pronounced “knowledge”) debut on Stones Throw, the cult LA label whose successes include J Dilla, Mayer Hawthorne and Madlib. ‘Hud Dreems’ follows on from ‘Anthology’, a selection of 53 tracks taken from Knxwledge’s 2009-2013 releases.

Standing out in a sea of producers rising from the Low End Theory scene, Knxwledge fashions his sound from a pastiche of soul, jazz and hip-hop that melts together in a style uniquely his own. The 26 year-old has produced for hip-hop powerhouse Kendrick Lamar on ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’, for Joey Badass on ‘1999’, and has been declared by Pitchfork as, “an enormous talent… Knxwledge is a consummate artist”.

Knxwledge has also partnered with Anderson Paak as the R&B/Hip Hop duo Nxworries, whose highly anticipated debut album is scheduled for release in late 2015.
