Given the latest trap craze, it seems increasingly uncommon to find young producers making unique, melodic hip-hop instrumentals. LA-based artist Knxwledge (a.k.a. Glen Boothe, Knx.) is one of those rare finds, and is set to drop his latest offering, called Buttrskotch, via Leaving Records. The release consists of 11 brief-but-soulful beats, much like "j∆M.FRºZE," which is driven by bright, swelling synths and borrowed sounds from old funk, soul, and jazz records, à la SoCal MPC masters Madlib and J Dilla. If you're feeling "j∆M.FRºZE," be sure to look out for the rest of Boothe's release when it drops tomorrow as a limited run of 200 cassettes.
