Rapper and producer, Knucks, is one of the UK's hottest prospect, and as he continues to build on the strong reputation he has developed so far, he has now unveiled his debut E.P, 'NRG 105'. Styled like a radio transmission, with a smooth American radio host introducing the music, humourous call-ins and spoof ads interspersed throughout, the 10 track body of work is a highly polished production - something that complements Knucks’ mature sound.

The record comes in at the finest quality with Knucks bringing the vibe on all 10 tracks. Although we see him showcase his individual ability for the most part, the 10 track tape also features contributions from some of the UK scene’s most exciting artists. Knucks and Grime mainstay, Wretch 32, trade verses over a killer trap beat on ‘Diddy’, Awhile Mike Skinner-mentored rapper Oscar #Worldpeace shows his promise on the Afrobeats-inspired ‘Blessings’.
'NRG 105' is clear evidence of Knucks realising his potential and channeling that into a slick, expertly-produced hip-hop record with an unmistakably British feel.
