Knxwledge "karma​.​loops​.​prt3"

If you're up on the beat scene, then you already know about this dude. This one of my all-time favorite Knx beat tapes. Hella nice samples paired with clicky, off-beat drums. Favorite joints include "wntwrk", "jstleft", "nobodielse" and "seenikRowt".

Elaquent "The Journey" (Believing drops 6/24)

Fellow cCanadian beat-maker Elaquent has been on my radar for a minute now, and since he's been a part of the HW&W Recordings roster, I'm sure a lot of heads have taken notice.

His past joints like The Midnight After and The Scenic Route have been bangin' and I have a feeling his new album "Believing" isn't gonna disappoint.

I had a chance to speak to the dude about a month ago, and all I can say is he definitely deserves all the love and support he gets.

Peep "The Journey",  a teaser track eQ dropped to keep us anticipatin'. Get ready.
