Check Out a New Mixtape from Knxwledge
- Words: Patric Fallon
Though XLR8R hasn't exactly been on the Knxwledge train since day one, the LA beatmaker has nonetheless randomly appeared on our pages for a handful of years now, most recently when we posted a free download of his "j∆M.FRºZE" track for Leaving Records and when Lapalux tipped us off to one of his beats on YouTube in today's High Five feature. We're hoping to continue with this trend, and will do so by sharing the brand-new mixtape Knxwledge just posted online. The relevnt.b/sde_LP. offering finds the SoCal producer working in the lineage of J Dilla, Madlib, and Flying Lotus, a territory he's explored across a staggering number of releases ranging back to 2009. The guy seems to flip just about anything he can get his hands on—loops of hip-hop, soul, boogie, R&B, and beyond all make an appearance—to make the 15 minute-plus beats comprising his latest offering, all of which can be streamed below and purchased for the price of $10.
