Behind the Music

I’m always astounded to learn of people that are willing to destroy nature and the planet out of greed - rarely thinking of the long term ramifications of their actions - which is why I was so drawn to the chapter ‘The Final Frontier.’ It was inspiring to read of the Brazilian scientists partnering with Greenpeace to save a reef off the coast of Brazil from being destroyed by oil companies. 

I tried to visualize their story, as well as all the others featured in The Outlaw Ocean, when making my music. I wanted to create a soundtrack to life adrift out on the lawless sea and the kind of chaos that can strike at any moment out there.

East London-based producer DJ Sukh Knight is known for his involvement in the grime and dubstep scenes. He has previously released music with an array of different labels including New World Audio, True Tiger Recordings, Stripes Records, Nebula Music Group and Hench Recordings. Knight is known for the darker sounds he brings to grime and dubstep, with heavy weight basslines and tripped out percussion. His Indian background has influenced his music as well as the London culture he is surrounded by.

Sukh has helped develop some of the most beloved songs in dubstep, such as “Ganja Dub,” “Diesel not Petrol,” P Money’s “Slang Like This” and his massive collaboration with Squarewave and Mensah on “Quad Bikes.” He previously made drum and bass and hip-hop alongside the members of his deep electronica group, the Nasha Experience, but since then Sukh has extended his talent to work with bigger artists such as Ed Sheeran, Professor Green, D Double E, Big Narstie and many more. His travels around Europe and the world have made him a global name in the underground scenes.

The Journalism behind the Music

All music in this project is based on The Outlaw Ocean, a New York Times Best-Selling book by Ian Urbina that chronicles lawlessness at sea around the world. This reporting touches on a diversity of abuses ranging from illegal and overfishing, arms trafficking at sea, human slavery, gun running, intentional dumping, murder of stowaways, thievery of ships and other topics.
