Back in 2016, the rappng/singing/drumming polymath Anderson .Paak joined forces with the inventively hazy producer Knxwledge to release the album Yes Lawd! The LP, released under the duo name NxWorries, was a fascinating work of funky, broken, psychedelic R&B. In the years since, Anderson .Paak has become a big enough star to headline arenas, and Knxwledge has continued to put in work on the underground, cranking out a steady supply of beat tapes on Bandcamp. But on one new track from the new Knxwledge LP, NxWorries reunite.
On the track “Itkanbe[Sonice],” Knxwledge and .Paak once again find their old chemistry, with .Paak casually flexing, his voice drifting effortlessly over Knxwledge’s gooey groove. It’s a short song, and it feels like it could go on a whole lot longer.
"Stillsonice" is a new remix. The record is packaged in a clear bag with a printed card. (Size: 10 in x 7 in. The record grooves are the side of a 7-inch record.)
