Knucks returns with ‘24′ written and recorded on his birthday November 12th, ’24’ is 24 candles so to speak a continuation from ‘Cake’ summarising events in his life this past year.
Knucks is a musician born and raised in South Kilburn. The north-west Londoner has been involved in music for over 10 years, dating back to his days at school when he was a fan of Grime. It was this period that led to him spending time in Nigeria at a boarding school for bad behavior. Coming back still interested in Grime, a young Knuckles began self-teaching himself – on a demo version of Fruity Loops – how to sample and produce Grime beats. The London sound had clearly shifted toward UK Rap which was more appealing to the teenager.
At 15 he had become fully bitten by the music bug, writing and producing his own material – which eventually became ‘Killmatic.’ During those seminal years he built a broad musical palette and by the age of 18 was produced for some of the biggest names in the scene such as Fekky and Blade Brown. But he had the vision to be more than just a producer.
It wasn’t until he was brought to a studio in Finsbury Park to record songs for ‘Killmatic’ that he was able to really explore his musical talents. Always discovering new ways to develop his creativity Knucks embarked on a degree in Animation & Computer Arts which he completed in 2017. Since releasing ‘Killmatic,’ Knucks has gone from strength to strength with a slew of well-received singles including his biggest hit ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s.’
Trying to complete uni proved a struggle whilst balancing a growing rap career. Throughout Knucks managed to perform in Brighton at The Great Escape Festival, supported Not3s on tour, opening for Wretch 32 and releasing four videos ‘Frostbite,’ ‘Cannes,’ ‘Vows’ and ‘Hooper.’
Looking forward to a promising year even being included in Fader, Complex, GRM Daily’s artist’s to watch in 2018. In his own words “uni done I’m about.”
