Knucks is a musician born and raised in South Kilburn. The North West Londoner has been involved in music for nearly 10 years, dating back to his days at school when he first heard Grime. Around this time he earned the name ‘Knuckles’. It was in this period that led to the 12 year old being sent to boarding school in Nigeria for bad behaviour, but that couldn’t stop his interest in music.

On return to London, Knucks began teaching himself – on a demo version of Fruity Loops – how to sample and produce Grime beats. The London sound clearly shifted towards UK Rap which was more appealing to this young teenager.

At 15, he had become fully bitten by the music bug – writing and producing his own material which eventually became ‘Killmatic’ – whilst still studying at school. During those seminal years he built a broad musical taste and by 18 was producing for some of the biggest names in the scene such as Fekky and Blade Brown – but he had the vision to be more than just a producer.

It wasn’t until he was brought into a studio in Finsbury Park to record songs for Killmatic that he was really able to explore his musical talents – transitioning from ‘Knuckles’ to ‘Knucks’, leading to the 2014 release of Killmatic under his new alias.

Fast forward to September 2016, with the release of ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ premiering on SBTV, the reaction to Knucks has thus far been more than encouraging. Securing feature spots on Bonkaz 2016 release ‘Fuck Fame’ and releasing his single ‘Turnover’ at the end of 2016, Knucks has continued to establish his position in the industry. His continued work and progress lead him to being asked to feature on London Rebels ‘Shades’ compilation released in February 2017, which showcased the best up and coming talent that London has to offer. The future is bright for Knucks and sees him to continue to thrive in 2017.
