The wholly instrumental album brings together elements of hip-hop, jazz, and experimental electronic music.
It acts as a homage to J Dilla’s seminal Donuts LP, as well as taking elements from Duval Timothy’s Sen Am album.
Knopperz follows Okumu’s Undone: Live At the Crypt album with Tom Herbert and Tom Skinner, released on The Vinyl Factory.
