Khalil Ismail - Knocking

Ambush & Khalil Ismail
Freedom Fighters

Don’t you hear Khalil Ismail Knocking? Well goddamn then, let the man in already. For his solo DJBooth debut (his name first appeared on our pages as a feature on Charlie Hilton’s Mother ), the DMV artist joins forces with producer Ambush to put together an uplifting instrumental built on a bouncing piano line and steadily driving percussion. It’s a foundation that Ismail builds on powerfully on the mic, using the full range of his vocal abilities to showcase the obvious passion that he puts into his music. Expect to hear Ismail’s knocking get even louder and more undeniable when his Freedom Fighters album is released on August 6. Until then…
