The 1979 – “Girls (The Knocks Remix)”

No Comments 06 November 2013

Something to liven up your hump day.  One of our new favorite bands of 2013 remixed by one of our all time favorite production outfits.   take ′s sugary pop ballad “Girls” and shove it straight into the middle of a dance circle.  The NYC guys have a knack for making remixes not sound like remixes and more like a new production all their own.  Enjoy, oh and free download!

The Knocks – “Modern Hearts (ft. St. Lucia)”

No Comments 18 April 2013

So if you haven’t heard by now teamed up with fellow NYC artist and former tour buddy to give you one of the biggest party anthems of the year, “Modern Hearts”.  Right from the start you can tell the tag-team brought their A+ game.  Housey synths swell as Grobler woah’s the song into his unique and catchy hook.  As soon as the first tom drum break hits you know there’s no turning back, your feet have already started burning a hole in your bedroom shoes and your sweating from the imaginary dance floor lights…you’ll see what I mean.  The single was released this week and if that’s not enough did a FREE REMIX.

Dragonette – “Let It Go (The Knocks Remix)”

1 Comment 04 April 2012

Our favorite DJ duo dropped their official remix of ’s newest single “Let it Go” yesterday via soundcloud and it is, in a word, dope.  They add their typical percussive flare and a stellar drop.  Another example where the remix outdoes the original by a mile.

The Knocks / Savoir Adore / St. Lucia

1 Comment 11 March 2012

Last night Neon Gold bands , , and absolutely destroyed The Social in Orlando, FL.  Unfortunately few witnessed but those that did were treated to stellar performances by three top-tier acts.  [But seriously, I’m disappointed in you Florida]

St. Lucia took the stage unassumingly and set right to turning everyone in the venue into diehard fans.  Named after the Caribbean island St. Lucia’s tropical could be felt as well as heard.  Before too long the dance floor was filled driven by irresistible songs like “Closer Than This” and “We Got It Wrong”.  Without gushing too much I’ll just say St. Lucia put on one of the best performances I’ve seen in a while.

St. Lucia – “We Got It Wrong”

Having to follow the performance St. Lucia put on was a task to say the least.  Fortunately for us Savoir Adore didn’t back down and put on a fantastic set as well.  Flawless tracks like “Dreamers” and “Loveliest Creature” make it pretty tough to fail though.

Savoir Adore – “Dreamers”

No matter how great St. Lucia and Savoir Adore were they felt like warm-ups once The Knocks kicked off.  Equipped with an arsenal of drums and synths The Knocks laid to waste what was left of The Social.  Their unique indie electronic style is easily some of the best late night dance party material ever created and it held up in a live format.  Tracks like “Blackout” and “Brightside” had every available body flailing like it was their last dance.  The crowd may have climaxed in unison when Deidre Muro of Savoir Adore joined them on stage to cover M83′s “Midnight City”.

The Knocks – “Midnight City (M83 Cover) (ft. Mandy Lee)”

Overall, it was an incredible show.  If you get the chance to see any of these acts in the future, go.  You won’t regret it.
