It’s been just over three years since LA producer Knxwledge released Buttrskotch, his last proper full-length project, but that’s by no means the only output he’s blessed us with. Since 2009, the beatmaker known as Glen Earl Boothe has released over 100 tracks through his Bandcamp page, as well as a critically acclaimed project with Anderson Paak called NxWorries that birthed the epic Yes Lawd! LP.
Now he’s back at it on the solo tip with a new track, “Do You,” the first material from a forthcoming solo album due this spring on Peanut Butter Wolf’s Stones Throw imprint. The instrumental jam is pure feelgood, West Coast vibes, heavy on the keys with a jazzy flourish on the 15th bar that will have you twisting up your nose and giving your best funk face.
Before Coachella or Stagecoach … before Wexler or Krisel … and even before the first date shake, a handful of visionaries saw more than a desert … they saw an oasis of opportunity.
The family-owned business faces an uncertain future.
