Driven by the liberating realisations of his own artistic journey, Perth rapper KNOE releases ‘Juice’, a hip-hop track enriched with soul vibes and humbling lyrics off his upcoming ‘Reasons’ EP.
Influenced by a rough day at work, a pack of cigarettes and a few bottles of wine, ‘Juice’ is about staying true to your moral compass and never changing who you are to appease others. It explores the enigmatic struggle with being so fixated on the glorified perception of success, so much that you lose grip of the real reason why you’re doing what you do in the first place.
KNOE says, “There was a point in time where I thought that making music was a useless dream because I wasn’t as successful as others, and it was a long journey of ups and downs before I truly started creating for the right ‘Reasons’, again.”
Written as an ode to the juice of his inspiration, KNOE says that “No matter how big or small your contribution is in the wonderful world of music, it’s nice to take a step back and remember that creating anything is a blessing.”
The track features the delicate vocals of Paloma backed by gentle New York style melodies, forming a warm and captivating sound that serves as the perfect platter for KNOE’s relishing rhymes.
After working with Grammy Award winning producer !llmind, KNOE has been building his unique sound whilst increasingly becoming a notable artist in Australia’s music scene. His catalogue of features include tracks with Skyzoo, Torae, and Perth’s own Drapht. He’s also supported the likes of Action Bronson, David Dallas, Remi, and Spit Syndicate.
KNOE’s his forthcoming ‘Reasons’ EP is slated for release in August, where you can expect to hear more of his clever balance of warm rhythmic flows and aggressive bars.
