House | The Knocks ft. St. Lucia – Modern Hearts

Posted by on April 17, 2013


New York duo, The Knocks have exploded onto the scene in the past year or two riding the crest of the nu-disco wave that has had a resurgence globally in line with the resurgence of EDM stateside. Coming off of several outstanding remixes, The Knocks return to originals in the same unique style that has driven their success.

Their latest effort tabs South African singer, St Lucia to deliver a silky smooth vocal top line that meshes impeccably with the instrumental from The Knocks. This intoxicatingly funky track is destined to be on repeat with its masterfully layered synths and arps that stand out as incredibly unique during this resurgence of nu-disco.

Dubstep, House | Funky Friday #3

Posted by on March 8, 2013

Funky FridayFunky Friday is back again with some fresh grooves to get your Friday night going. Kicking off this weeks post is an awesome mix from funks future self, Aeroplane. Aeroplane has been one of the most consistant Disco-House producers for some time now. Thsi March mix is great, it isn’t too jam packed with tracks that it can’t be enjoyed, but enough to keep the party moving. A sweet download if you are looking to get moving a bit this weekend.

I have even surprised myself with all the mixes that have been involved in Funky Friday. The Knocks have come a long way since being openers for Chiddy Bang. Having been able to catch them live once myself, they tend to sneak in a little bit of the funk. Considering that they usually follow the masses, it is really cool to hear them let loose a little bit more on this mix.

This next track is technically Dubstep, but I could not get over the 80s Miami chord progression on this track. Dr. Ozi really did an awesome job on this original.


Mashups | DOSVEC – Bright Diamonds

Bright Diamonds

DOSVEC takes Rihanna’s vocals from “Diamonds” and combines it with The Knocks “Brightside” (TheFatRat Mix). This mashup highlights both side of the spectrum by starting off chill on the breakdown then hard on the hook.
