Love them or hate them, Knife Party successfully invented a completely different sound when they dropped onto the scene and have continued to innovate their productions constantly. While their live shows have been something of a let down for me, partly because of their uninspired performance and partly because of the less than savory fanbase they attract, I have always looked to their mixes as a great way to connect with the duo and their ever-evolving sound. Their latest 30-minute mix for Mixmag does just that. The mix is, as you’d expect, full of rage-worthy tracks but is surprisingly house and electro-focused, particularly in the first half. That might be a turn-off for brain-dead Knife Party purists, but it’s a refreshing mix of ups and downs in a short but sweet mix. Highlights for me (other than the obvious): Lazy Rich‘s “Silhouettes” remix, “Internet Friends VIP” and the Space Laces mix of Excision‘s “X-Rated”. Tracklist after the jump.
