Knocking Around SXSW

In anticipation of SXSW, I’ll be checking out and reviewing some of the most innovative talent in Austin for the festival this year.

One group I’m very excited to check out is The Knocks (Soundcloud, Facebook).

Producers Ben “B-Roc” Ruttner and James “JPatt” Patterson, are based out of NYC. Since 2010, they have been busy remixing and making beats for mainstream acts such as Marina and the Diamonds, Ellie Goulding and Theophilus London and many more. The Knocks have been heavily featured on the Hype Machine. Hype Machine sponsors the Hype Hotel which is always one of SXSW’s biggest parties for showcasing brand new acts.

The Knocks newest mix “Dancing with Myself” is a smooth track featuring silky vocals over housy electro beats. “Dancing with Myself” is currently in pre-order and set to be released 3/17/15. I can’t wait to check out their set on 3/21 and I’m definitely hoping to hear this fresh track live!
