To immerse oneself in the Knxwledge universe is to freefall through an unending reconfiguration of history, in short jolts of time. On this timeline, the sunshine’s Californian and the reefer comes standard-issue. The beat machine is blessed, his holy hand ensuring that no note, pitch, voice, or sound goes unturned. Some pieces ring familiar, many are uprooted for the greater good and released en masse. In this process, he mines for beauty wherever he can dig. (Sometimes, he doesn’t call the hotline to check the zoning.) Understanding this ensures one’s enjoyment of Hud Dreems: a gorgeous romp through many faraway lands, charging ceaselessly into the infinite. In a single breath, Knxwledge can elect to heal you, thrill you, or offer you an escape route. Tap into the way he steamrolls through time, and perhaps he’ll fulfill one of your dreams.

How we keep your records spinning.
Discover new music.
We spend our days digging for great albums. And once we’ve found that gem of a record, we do everything we can to help you appreciate the music. From gorgeous album art to world-class listening guides, you’ll find yourself discovering something new every time you listen.
Score special-edition records (available nowhere else).
We’ve got a knack for crafting the most unique, definitive version of any album – old or new. Remastering and reissuing a lesser-known classic album with artist-authored liner notes? We do that. Collaborating with an emerging artist to release their music and tell their story? We do that too. Either way you cut it, we’re creating musical experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.
Swap it out.
With Swaps, you can exchange a featured record with one from the VMP Archive or from a collection of our store titles. Because after fine-tuning your taste over a lifetime, trusting someone else to curate your record collection can be scary. We get it, and we want to help you try new things without forcing a title on you that’s not a good fit.
