Every good night out must have a soundtrack and NYC-based producers turned electro-hip-pop duo, The Knocks, are pleased to provide it. The pair will release their new EP Magic on December 6th, 2011, via A&M/Octone.
Shortly after the 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 Rihanna, Ellie Goulding, Foster The People, Chiddy Bang and Katy Perry, the NME was once again singing their praises for a slightly different reason, saying that the duo has “stepped out from behind the desk to rebirth the Superstar DJ.” Lately The Knocks have been electrifying the blogosphere and the clubs both in the U.S. and overseas with their own songs.
The Knocks just announced a 9-date run of UK shows with DJ Shadow beginning November 28th, and will head out on the high seas for the Weezer Cruise from January 19-23. The Knocks will be sailing alongside Weezer, Wavves, Dinsosaur Jr., Sleeper Agent and many more incredible bands for a cruise from Miami to the island of Cozumel off the Gulf Coast of Mexico. Performances will happen on stages around the ship, festival-style – just wear your life jacket during The Knocks set incase the dancing gets too out of control.
