Knife Party – ‘100% No Modern Talking’ EP

Ive touched on Knife Party on the BBQ before. Then, they had just burst onto the scene with a flurry of remixes and collaborations that could only be accomplished by a couple guys as established as Rob and Gareth from Pedulum.

They didnt ride Pedulums reputation for long however. With a world premier live set in Space, Ibiza, they set the tone for what would be one of the biggest electro acts to emerge in 2011. I had the pleasure of seeing their first show ever in North America and believe me, they stole the show from the likes of Skrillex and 12th Planet (and I LOVE skrilli and 12th)

I suspect these boys to make an even bigger impact in 2012. Playing Ultra and who knows what other festivals this summer, they are going to rise fast and go far in the EDM world.

Heres their first EP, ‘100% No Modern Talking’ that includes one of my favorites Internet Friends.


You can also download their live set broadcast on BBC radio one from Space for free Continue reading


Wheres the bloody Knife Party?

Today’s music is inspired by yesterday’s music, and will be inspiring tomorrow’s. But what if you made yesterdays music? I’m talking about artists who go through a profound change in musical output, but only after mastering the first one. They don’t just learn the history of some genre. They have a carnal knowledge and experience of it which they use to build a platform and launch something new and exciting. Some of my favorite and most successful artists – Steve Aoki, The Bloody Beetroots, MSTRKRFT – all have filthy, rebellious, punk-rock influences which seep through into their music. So its at moments like these, you need to take a step back and say, WHERES THE BLOODY KNIFE PARTY?


Knife Party is to Pendulum what MSTRKRFT is to DFA1979. Its a side project by Rob Swire and fellow pendulmate Gareth McGrillen that takes the raw energy of their DnB/rock roots, and sends it through an evil electronic disco machine. If you have ever been to a Pendulum concert, you know its one of the most insane mosh pits of your life. Now turn down the drum and turn up the bass, crank out some massive electro, dubstep and moombahcore tunes, and you’ve got yourselves the next level of shit-losing dance music.


They have done some huge remixes this summer for the likes of Nero, SHM, and even new guy: Porter Robinson. Along with some neck breaking original production, they also collaborated with electro dubmaster Skrillex for a wobbly moombahton single Zoology. Its clear to me they have been bottling up all the excess electo that couldnt make it into Pendulums albums because its all coming out in a furious assault on the dance floor.

This is a studio mix they did featuring some awesome unreleased singles and a couble of the summers biggest remixes.
