Another day, another Knxwledge project. The young boy who seems to drop EPs to coincide with your paychecks is back at it; he’s just uploaded the latest installment in his Hexual.Sealings series onto his Bandcamp.
This series, which focuses on remixes and original productions that center on the sentimental, is on its fourth volume and eighth release. This time around, Knx is rearranging and flipping vocals by Lloyd Banks and Keri Hillson, The Game and Whiz Kalifa; even the mighty R. Kelly himself gets re-imagined.
The shining jewel of the EP, however, is certainly his interpretation of Rihanna’s smash “You Da One.” Going from the arena to the bedroom, Knx brings Rihanna’s infectious vocals into a lo-fi world of muted horns and stuttering drums.
