Label: Big Beat / Neon Gold Records | Release Date: August 12th, 2014

Today NYC-based duo The Knocks have released a new single off of their debut album due out this fall, “Classic (feat. Powers)” along with a message to their fans via a letter posted to Twitter.  The letter addresses the saturation and accessibility of music today and how the abundance can sometimes be an obstacle for producers.  B-Roc and JPatt acknowledge that the “internet is a brutal place to be a budding musician” but add that they’ve “found that the best way to successfully traverse the current landscape of the music industry is by releasing music that invokes some kind of emotions in the listener.”  

“Classic” is a breezy, summery dance track with enough soul and signature funk to resonate.  The guys explain that with this release, they “tried to create a well of nostalgic energy that anyone could easily access by simply pressing play,” and from initial listening, they’ve achieved it.  Hats off to The Knocks for their profundity about the industry and for releasing such a stellar tune along with their message.  Read the full letter and check out “Classic” below.  “Classic” will be out on August 12th and is available for pre-order on iTunes.
