Based out of the Lower East Side of Manhattan, The Knocks are Ben “B-Roc” Ruttner and James “Jpatt” Patterson whose unique mix of beats, sounds and styles has earned them a much deserved following of fans and collaborators alike.
Legendary music publication NME declared The Knocks to be one of the “20 hottest producers in music” for their versatile production and remix work for the likes of Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Marina & the Diamonds, Ellie Goulding, Foster the People, Passion Pit and Little Boots to name a few.
Brightside’, which has already reached #1 on the Hype Machine Most Popular chart, is an uptempo chilled feel-good anthem with smooth vocals that leads into an infectious chorus with a catchy electro beat throughout. It has the much-loved signature Knocks sound and has ‘hit’ written all over it. Remixes come courtesy of Fred Falke, The Sound of Arrows, Lenno, Jaybird and TheFatRat.
New York DJ & producer duo The Knocks will release their new single ‘Brightside’ on 28th November before playing a host of UK support dates with DJ Shadow in November and December.
