Why do we like this?

Knxworries is a collaboration between experimental/instrumental hip-hop producer Knxwledge and Anderson .Paak. It's been a huge year for Paak, who featured on six tracks on Dr. Dre's Compton, and tracks by The Game, MED, Blue & Madlib, GoldLink, and Schoolboy Q. Knxwledge also saw an exciting 2015 with the release of his unconventional, diverse album Hud Dreems, as well as earning production credits on on Kendrick Lamar and Joey Badass' records. 

Their unique styles -- one, a complex, sample-stuffed experimental approach, and the other, modern, jangling soul and R&B, have been brought together as Nxworries. The pair are releasing their joint EP this week, and Stones Throw have shared new single "Link Up" a few days early to put us in the mood. 

Indeed, at times it feels like there's two songs layered atop one another. You've got the sweeping, swishing, totally packed instrumental atmosphere, while .Paak's melody -- which feels as though it's dancing to slightly different beat -- pull it together in a smooth, funk-inspired melody. 

This is a radio rip from Beats 1 Radio, so the final two minutes of this SoundCloud track is actually a short interview between Zane Lowe and .Paak. Nxworries will release Link Up & Suede this Friday on Stones Throw. Purchase here
