The album, 1988, takes its name from the year its production supposedly began: left alone as a baby, Knxwldge apparently began using his family’s vintage SP–12 sampler, with the resulting tunes stored on floppy discs for decades, before being finished, mixed and remastered in recent months.

Its deluxe vinyl edition features a bonus EP and single, available on physical formats only.

Knxwldge’s 1988 LP follows his recent MEEK​.​VOL5_ mixtape, as well as his Hud Dreems LP, which was released on Stones Throw in 2015.
