Albums | The Knocks

Posted by on May 2, 2010

Based out of the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Knocks are emerging as a force to be reckoned with as far as indie music production is concerned. Consisting of Ben “DJ B-Roc” Ruttner and James “JPatt” Patterson, the Knocks are named in reference to the early days of their production career when they worked out of a home studio as their complaining neighbors pounded on their walls and ceilings. Nowadays, you can find the duo killing it at the Heavy Roc Music studio in Chinatown. They’ve continued to make a name for themselves by finding and developing talent as well as remixing the likes of major artists including Ellie Goulding, Katy Perry, and Flo-rida (all of whom we’ve included below).

This is a highly remixed track, however, few artists can lay claim to the innovative sound that The Knocks produced with this one.
Download: Samuel – Starry Eyed (Ellie Goulding Cover Produced By The Knocks)

The track below is an impressively executed techno-ish remix of Katy Perry’s hit “I Kissed A Girl”.

And one more for good measure.
