Bio

Inspired by the sample based sounds of New York hip hop, KNOE has built a following for his smooth yet vicious presence that finds the pocket of the most audacious instrumentals.

After working with 7 time nominated and Grammy Award winning producer !llmind, KNOE has been building behind the scenes on what can only be described as a sound that will age like fine wine. With Jazz inspired backdrops complimented by swing filled drums and raw but conscious lyrics, KNOE is set to please the ears of 90’s rap nerds and modern day listeners alike.

If real recognise real, KNOE’s catalogue of features tells a strong story. KNOE has shared songs with Sonny Jim, Skyzoo, Torae, Retch, Maffew Ragazino and Perth’s own Drapht.

Following the release of his critically acclaimed EP ‘Reasons’ and a 13 show Australian tour with hip hop royalty Drapht in late 2019, Perth rapper KNOE is back with his first single of 2020. The single sets the tone of his upcoming EP ‘Burgundy Love’ which is set to drop in April.

You both compliment each other really nicely on this one. Lyrics are a little cheeky. By mid point i'm quite enjoying it.

The way it's all sculpted - like the way the bass is so far forward and the keys are further back - is interesting and different. Sambo's voice is super smooth, and Knoe's raps are confident. I like this.
