We can't be too sure now, but we'll bet The Knocks drops one of the biggest songs of the summer this year. Bet!
Two weeks in and 2016 is already making a case for it to be considered the fiery-est year on record. Amongst all the heat, however, none are standing out more so than than the New York-based production duo The Knocks. The proof? Take this newly gifted track featuring Wyclef Jean — "Kiss The Sky." That hook, that retro-drenched backend — fuckin' Wyclef for crying out loud. The song has every needed ingredient for a powerful jam. We can't be too sure now, but we'll bet The Knocks drops one of the biggest songs of the summer this year. Bet!
About The Knocks:
"The Knocks are a New York story through & through, first meeting at age 19 in a studio (at New School). Ben “B-Roc” Ruttner DJed clubs while James “JPatt” Patterson played the organ at a church outside the city. Working out of their bedrooms, The Knocks first remixed Jay-Z’s entire American Gangster album in two days, calling it American G-Funk. The duo translated this online success further, soon churning out remixes for the likes of Katy Perry, Passion, and Ellie Goulding, among others, The remixes became synonymous with a certain warm, retro-future, disco-kissed touch. In 2008, JPatt and B-Roc took out a loan and opened the HeavyRoc studio at 55 Chrystie, in the same broken-down building where the Beastie Boys used to rehearse."
