Jake Robertz might be a new name you’ve never heard of until recently. I will tell you that you probably have heard tons of his music though. Jake formerly was 1/2 of Knight Riderz. Nick and Jake have gone separate ways and Jake has begun to pursue his solo career. It brings a smile to my face to bring you another AfroMonk.com Exclusive! After hearing his first EP, Something Inside, I was hooked. Knight Riderz the past two releases had gone a direction I personally wasn’t into considering how aggressive it got but hearing Jake’s new material cheered me up. He has a unique style that doesn’t really encompass the old Knight Riderz sound but has a chill vibe that I adore.
Jake’s Purity Ring remix is stunning! If you’re into 808s than you’ll love this tune! Not to mention the vocals add such depth to the tune that you can’t help but jam out to this one. After hearing his debut EP and this remix it should be obvious that despite parting ways from Knight Riderz he is still on the right path! We have already begun talks of a possible Afro Monk Records release in the near future!
