Two weeks ago, if you had mentioned Knife Party to me, I would have probably thought you were looking to either having a really gruesome fight, an awesome sounding party, or both. Now, it seems that myself and everyone else in the world have been clearly and harshly corrected with the release of some of the hardest hitting bass-filled tracks I’ve heard in a while, all within a matter of weeks. It all started on August 6th in Ibiza, when the two boys from Pendulum who make up Knife Party threw down their first live set in what is being called an “essential mix” of about 40 minutes in length featuring their claim-t0-fame remix of SHM’s Save the World amongst some other unknown tracks. Now, that has evolved into the release of several previews including “Internet Friends”, “Fire Hive”, “Tourniquet” and their remix of Nero’s “Crush On You”. That’s not even to mention “Zoology”, their moombahton venture with Skrillex, which is unbelievable and the fact that they are working on a song in direct collaboration with the Swedish House Mafia themselves. All this in a matter of weeks? Yes please.
Don’t believe me that Knife Party may be the wildest shit to hit your ears in a while? Check these tracks out.
Here’s their latest 25 min studio mix which is of better quality than their “essential mix” and gives you a taste of everything they’ve got out at the moment. (Tracklist after jump)
P.S. If anyone had a chance to see the Pendulum DJ Set (which just sounds a lot like a covert way doing a Knife Party show to me) at Beta on Thursday night in Denver, let me know if any of these tracks sound familiar!
