Philadelphia Based beat-scene producer Knxwledge is a well established figure in the scene. His Post-Dilla production style like those of Matthew David, Shlomo, Teebs, And Flylo, He is superb at creating a laid back nostalgic vibe. Soulful, Knxwledges twist on Hip hops warm hearted sampling techniques is like listening to a very dissenegrating memory of a song. Sometimes on the borderline of psychedellia the tracks keep a sensible flow. Samples mainly from old jazz piano and string pieces take the aesthetic of crackling vinyl thats just so damn soothing. Check out some of his tracks for yourself and catch the drift of this force to be reckoned with.
