Exclusive: Knowa Knowone Talks Critical Beats/His New Release and Saving the Amazon

This music is truly progressive, weaving indigenous Peruvian songs into modern electronic virtuosity. The result is intended to connect listeners to the hearts and prayers of indigenous Amazonians and inspire them to join the struggle to preserve our planet’s most precious ecological resource. Knowa’s trademark dirty basslines, hypnotic drum programming and swirling sound design surround a beautiful collage of natural sounds and human life. “Amazon Secrets” plays with elements of dark glitch, summertime dub and that unmistakable West Coast flavor; while “Girls Initiation” grinds on a slow, exotic vibe, with sparkling melodies and meticulously crafted breakbeats chopped up around an unrelenting, heavy low end.
