Sometimes when you hear a song by an artist you've not heard of before, you just stop everything you're doing and tap into what you're listening to. That's exactly what happened when I first heard Manchester-born producer/songwriter Knew J. Having been in the music game for well over ten years in bands such as Kid British, the Mancunian is now forging his own path. His love for 808 heavy beats and smooth guitar riffs really pushes through in his music, with an r&b blend that is easy to digest. The list of influences that J notes down are varied, from John Mayer to Bone Thugz N Harmony, he draws on a wide spectrum of sounds.
On his latest single "The End", we are treated to a catchy, emotion filled R&B banger that showcases his sound. As the infectious guitar loop echoes, the drum pattern that rolls on underneath gets your head nodding. The lyricism that J portrays puts his at his most vulnerable and details what it's like going through a break up and the need to move on. "The End" is available on all good streaming platforms right now!
