The Knux is among the most exciting ensembles working in hip-hop today. Nebbish brothers Krispy Kream and Rah Al Millio are Hurricane Katrina evacuees who landed in Los Angeles, where they set roots and made a masterful debut in Remind Me in 3 Days. The duo bypasses the genre's more base lyrical inclinations — money, parties, women — for a musical approach to the genre that features creative use of instrumentation and electronics, particularly a savvy use of slinky '70s-sounding guitar lines as on "Fire (Put It in the Air)," with an OutKast-ready chorus and a delightfully geeky little synth solo.
Knux is on Interscope Records and have a new release dropping at the end of September. The first video from the album was just released featuring an appearance from Kid Cudi.
The Knux have previously performed at most major US festivals including Lollalapooza, Coachella and ACL and have supported many musicians including Common, Shwayze and Travis Barker.
In the four short years since that first gig Boy Wonder has become one of Philadelphia's most promising and interesting young artists delivering a high energy blend of Pop Music that blends Funk, Rock, Soul, Blues, Hip-Hop and Jazz.
