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.
