LIVE On Tour This Summer

“…a straight up summer smash, the kind of dance track that hangs in an era-less vacuum; the kind of tune makes you feel like you're in a movie montage, that begins in the hazy magic hour and splices together every amazing moment till dawn.” – VICE’s Noisey

“…the pair lands a sound timeless enough to conjure, via those perky guitar licks, catchiness ranging from modern Daft Punk, to old-school Sugar Ray, to that Len song, ‘Steal My Sunshine.’”

“’Classic’ is a self-fulfilling prophecy for the track’s hit potential, and a late contender for Song of the Summer.” Flavorwire

“…this particular tune will lift you into a sonic high no matter when or where you are.”
– Earmilk

“If the latest original release from breakout NYC producer duo The Knocks doesn't scream summertime playlist addition, than we aren't sure what will…” – this song is sick

“Summer may be slowly fading, but New York’s The Knocks are ready let go just yet. The dropped a new song ‘Classic’ that could be a late contender for your summer jam of 2014.”
– My Old Kentucky Blog

The Knocks consists of B-Roc J-Patt, who moved in together after dropping out of music school in NYC. J-Patt’s background in soul & funk, and B-Roc’s years spent immersed in trip-hop & hip-hop beats, has allowed them to quickly ascend the production ranks. Initially gaining recognition for their remixes for artists including HAIM,SantigoldFoster the PeopleTwo Door Cinema ClubEllie Goulding & more, they eventually found themselves experimenting with sounds of their own.
Having spent the last three years jet-setting around the globe for DJ gig, sharing stages with GrouploveM.I.A.,Chromeo & others, the duo will be on the road once again this summer- taking their ecstatic live show to college towns across the country as well as a stint at Montreal’s ÎleSoniq festival:
