Skiifall Enlists Knucks for New Song and Video “Ting Tun Up Part II”

Despite a storied musical history across multiple era-defining artists and genres, Montreal’s rap presence hasn’t quite matched up to the lineage of their indie or electronic greats, although St. Vincent native Skiifall’s debut single “Ting Tun Up” has placed the city firmly in the global hip hop conversation in explosive fashion. Amassing fans in the likes of Jorja Smith, Virgil Abloh, and the voice of the UK’s streets Kenny Allstar, the track ignited intrigue in a fusion of styles that’s completely unique across the transatlantic rap spectrum. Today, Skiifall consolidates that excitement on both sides of the Atlantic with “Ting Tun Up Part II,” featuring London’s own Knucks.

A menacing yet meditative cut of hard-hitting rap – “Ting Tun Up Part II” is a diamond edged portrait of the culture clashing styles of Skiifall. Over a dizzying, freeform piano loop and rumbling 808s – Skiifall establishes one of 2021’s best rap hooks alongside elasticated flows in his own signature Vincentian creole-infused delivery. UK rapper Knucks cements that fusion of styles further, bringing a savvy UK rap style to the track with defiant flows and an assured confidence that offsets Skiifall’s own vocal melodicism.
