This year, FACT TV’s Bryan McKay, Claire Lobenfeld and John Twells packed up and headed to Austin, Texas for South By Southwest 2016 and talked to some of the festival’s most exciting artists.

Pro Era producer and rapper Kirk Knight is one of his crew’s key members, crafting some of Joey Bada$$’s best-known tracks and working extensively with FACT-favorite Mick Jenkins. Last year he dropped the excellent Late Knight Special full-length, which featured appearances from Thundercat, Jenkins and Bada$$ and was produced entirely by Knight.

FACT met with Knight at this year’s SXSW to talk about his process, and find out why the New New York scene is still worth keeping an eye on.
