Knox38 unveils vibrant new single ‘Ooh Nana’
South London rapper Knox38 returns to Donae’o’s Movin Anti label with new single ‘Ooh Nana’, out now.
Propelled by a unique production featuring vibrant instrumentation and South Asian vocal samples, ‘Ooh Nana’ is a slick Afrobeats-inspired jam that allows Knox38’s smooth flow to take centre stage. It follows debut single ‘Options’, an acclaimed release that was premiered by GRM Daily and has already amassed more than 100,000 YouTube streams.
The upcoming new album from the duo spans genres and weaves its way in and out of drum & bass, techno, electronica and soul music, stitching tapestries together to create a soundtrack that would feel as at home in the club as it would vibrating through solitary headphones. The record, which features some incredibly exciting and varied names including neo soul up and comer Greentea Peng, south London alt-jazz hero Tom Misch, and British blues and soul vocalist Natalie Duncan, shows off both the rich history and calibre of Goldie and James Davidson individually but also how they can create something together that’s so cohesive and forward thinking. The sound the duo have been able to create is also partly due to their geographical locations over the past 18 months, bouncing ideas between Davidson’s studio in Bournemouth on the south coast and Goldie’s house in Phuket, Thailand; showing two songwriters and producers at the top of their game responding to a year and a half in very different atmospheres but similar trying circumstances.

The similarly vibrant official video, which she helped choreograph, finds her busting moves with the squad – a perfect match for the track’s energy. It follows ‘On Sight’, her recent collaboration with fellow UK rising star SBK.
