“Kuf Knotz is an experimental indie/hip-hop artist based in New York, though the Philadelphia roots definitely show through at times. Blending classic rap, soul, and hard rock styles to shape the group’s sounds, Kuf Knotz bring a seriously strong feel-good vibe to any room, headed up by an ultra-smooth vocal style. For this session at Saltlands Studio, Brooklyn’s Mr. Reed joined the fun to provide some super soulful choruses and the group spoke with Maia.” — via BTR TV
