Endisco album single "Classic" ft. Powers is a funk-infused dance anthem punctuated with The Knocks' signature party-starting guitar loops, infectious keys & sultry vocals- the consummate summer anthem. For a taste of what to expect from the upcoming record, fans can give "Classic" a spin where it premiered on VICE's Noisey, or HERE where it's available to post & share!
Having spent the last three years jet-setting around the globe for DJ gig, sharing stages withGrouplove, M.I.A., Chromeo & others, the duo will be on the road once again this summer- taking their ecstatic live show to college towns across the country as well as stints at New York's Full Moon & Montreal's ÎleSoniq festivals.
The Knocks consists of B-Roc & J-Patt, who moved in together after dropping out of music school in NYC. J-Patt's background in soul & funk, and B-Roc's years spent immersed in trip-hop & hip-hop beats, has allowed them to quickly ascend the production ranks. Initially gaining recognition for their remixes for artists including HAIM, Santigold, Foster the People, Two Door Cinema Club, Ellie Goulding & more, they eventually found themselves experimenting with sounds of their own. The guys didn't think much would come of a nearly five-minute track they'd been building, all tense beats & tingling synths: "it kind of started out as a joke," stated B-Roc. "But people were liking that more than the stuff we produced for other people. It felt right." The duo quickly discovered a newfound freedom in creating their own songs: "it's better because it's our own, and we can do whatever we want with it," explained J-Patt.
Stay tuned for more news from The Knocks coming soon!
