WHO: THE KNUX featuring brother’s Krispy Kream & Rah Almillio (a.k.a. Kentrell & Alvin Lindsey), who make genre defyingbeats for pop-minded hip hop fans, nerds, punks and the alternative/indie music community. Think Black Flag meets The Strokes with some Outkast thrown in the mix.
WHAT: Their critically acclaimed debut album REMIND ME IN 3 DAYS was enthusiastically supported by ROLLING STONE, SPIN, BLENDER, VIBE, PEOPLE, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, URB etc. along with national television including JIMMY KIMMEL SHOW,LATE NIGHT WITH CRAIG FERGUSON, LAST CALL WITH CARSON DALY, MTV and VH1 among others.
THE KNUX rank #28 on Rolling Stone’s Top 50 Albums Of The Year (for all genres), which is quite an honor as only three hip hop artists made the list, including Lil Wayne and Nas. Rolling Stone also rank THE KNUX’s – REMIND ME IN THREE DAYS as the 2nd Best Hip Hop Album Of The Year, right behind mega-Grammy nominee and winner `Lil Wayne.
THE KNUX are performing at all of the major summer music festivals (cross genre) from Essence Music Festival to Lollapalooza, ROCK THE BELLS, All PointsWest, Austin City Limits, The Bumbershoot, Voodoo Fest, etc. and recently played Bonnaroo, Sasquatch and the mainstage ofCoachella. The duo were also featured on the cover of the LA Times and The LA Weekly and have been included on numerous critics year-end “Best Release” lists.
“Their music is an attempt to make them immune from category, and…as ambassadors they are capable of bringing us closer to a broadening hip hop world where guitars and gangsters co-exist.” –SPIN MAGAZINE
