In recent years, Kirk Knight has emerged as one of the integral parts of the Pro Era crew — he’s even expanded his reach to creating beats for talented artists such as Mick Jenkins. To jump-start his 2017 run, the multi-talented Pro Era artist has decided to deliver a new instrumental project. Titled Black Noise, the album features 11 new pieces of production from Knight. “I wanted to drop an instrumental album that created a soundscape of my production,” Kirk Knight explained to FADER. ““I grew up listening to J Dilla, Madlib and Flying Lotus, and I’ve always wanted to contribute to the culture of instrumental albums.”

You can stream Kirk Knight’s Black Noise below, while the album will be available for purchase on iTunes tonight.
