Meet the poetically cruel, the fiercely independent the one and only KNOE.
This young artist resides in the suburbs of Perth city,Western Australia, where he strategically works towards becoming one of the most prolific underground rappers of today.
KNOE was known to be an integral part of the recognised Perth bass music faction, DeadWeight! Crew. This alliance paved the path to such stage appearances with Jakes (H.E.N.C.H Recordings), KOAN Sound, Seven (formally known as Eddy Woo) and multi-award winning dubstep DJ and producer, N -TYPE.
All this late night grind led to KNOE finding his feet and creating a smooth yet belligerent sound un-heard of within the Australian Hip hop scene. KNOE’s unique qualities have enabled him to break away from the “Aussie” hip-hop mould and be recognised internationally for his rhyming ability.
2013 saw KNOE’s collaborative work with New Jersey femcee TE released on her latest mix tape ‘Keeng’, and with prominent Brooklyn writer Skyzoo for the single ‘Push’, which has been released on KNOE’s recent EP ‘Lemonade’.
KNOE’s latest EP ‘Lemonade’ is a small insight into his demons and a sour taste of the irony behind life experiences. ‘Lemonade’ doesn’t disappoint the ever-growing hype building behind this artists story- telling and poetic ability.
Last year KNOE supported Action Bronson, David Dallas, P-Money and performed along side Skyzoo for the west coast show of his debut Australian tour,‘ A Dream Deferred’.
KNOE looks to cement his rightful place at the top of the food chain, with aggressive yet realistic delivery unique to anything heard before.
Keep your ears to the pavement.

~~Kala Ra, also known as Da Real brings balance to music by breaking
rules and boundaries as he takes listeners to a higher realm of truth.
“I rap about reality”, Kala Ra says. [his first mix tape's namesake.]
“I just tell a story about everyday life. It’s not always glamorous.
It’s not always happy. You always hear artists glamorize drug dealing
and killing. I show you the other side of that life, the real side
that has pain and consequences that they don’t want you to know
about.” Perhaps his name, which means self assurance in Ra (God) in
Ki-Swahili, describes his style best.

“Here I present to the world my Debut EP via my Rapper alias “The Road Trip”. This features 8 tracks produced by myself and various other producers. My intentions with this project were to simulate that of an actual road trip through phonic means. With themes varying from abstract imagery to the various marijuana strains I encounter on a day to day basis, I’ve attempted to paint a picture with multiple meanings behind it, interpret-able by the listener. Anyhow, I hope you’ll enjoy listening to the EP, I’ve put a lot of work in on it. Peace!” – Wize
