This EP is a collection of eight songs which did not make the final cut of KnowMads‘ upcoming album “The KnewBook”. That fifth full-length release by the Seattle-based hip hop collective will be coming out in late March.
The beats on “The KnewBook” paint with deep texture; the lyrics are passionate and sharp. Jester’s eclectic palette keeps you nodding to West Coast and Dilla influenced jams as well as some jazz-influenced cuts such as “BreakThrough”, while up-and-coming solo violinist Peter Lee Johnson composes the outro on “RainyNight”. A classic hip hop feel with some Northwest soul.
