In light of this torturous heatwave, the Knocks have come up with two brand new songs to take the edge off. Beat the New York City summer heat with ‘New York Luau‘ and ‘No Requests‘.
NYC’s cool and iconic electronic music duo continues their hot streak. With classic 90s house elements combined with some Nigerian flair, they prove their supreme worth.
‘New York Luau’ is a fun, bass-y homage to the big city. It moves with JPatt’s signature hip-hop rhythm. The track is groovy and the music video features an eclectic art show. This is the perfect rooftop party soundtrack from Manhattan to Tokyo, and probably even Los Angeles.
‘No Requests’ returns to their early club roots. It interweaves acid house, disco, and 1990s funk vocal elements. And boy, is that vocal sample catchy. There is a wavy bassline backed up by warm synths, making for quite the explosive cut. This track most certainly rules the dance floors and headphones worldwide, we assure you.
Both tracks see their release on Big Beat/Neon Gold/Atlantic Records. They earned their respective moniker when neighbors knocked on their apartment door for hearing so much noise. Turns out, they were just hearing them crank out many tracks in their recording studio.
These two singles follow their most recent worldly collab ‘Awa Ni’, featuring Nigerian singer Kah-Lo. The Knocks also unveiled their residency at JEMAA, the pool party at the Nomad Hotel in Las Vegas. Catch them there or in various other states when you can. Their tour will continue through August with details here. Or watch them in November at the Wonderfront Festival in San Diego.
B-Roc and Jpatt have been grinding for a decade. Hence why, they top Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Music boards for a reason.
