Their previous single ‘Modern Hearts’ off their upcoming album topped the hypeM charts only to be followed up with a remix by none other than Los Angeles’ golden child, Goldroom. Josh adds some amazing euphoric chords under the silky smooth vocals of St. Lucia. This one will be on repeat for pool parties everywhere. Be on the lookout for tons of new Knocks material to be announced soon!

Spring gets a little help from The Knocks in bringing the world back to life as their new remix for Goldroom‘s, “Only You Can Show Me,” illuminates the world with it’s babbling basslines and syncopated synth chords, taking your BPM up to that of its own. An essential for any spring time playlist, this track is sure to liven up your days at the pool, parties on the lawn, as well as any celebration you have planned in the coming warmed-up months.
When you go out in the Big Apple, you don’t just go out….you go out with a vengeance.

TGIF amirite? If your day started out as rainy, gross and cold like mine did here in NYC these two great remixes should brighten things right up!
With every passing day, it seems as though electronic dance music moves further into other genres and media outlets such as movie soundtracks and commercials. When my buddy informed me last week that TheFatRat produced a Lupe Fiasco track, I immediately had to find it and hear what it was all about. After listening, it was clear that our favorite disco-electro producer is at the forefront of the dance music/hip-hop fusion with this tasteful dubstep track that maintains a perfect balance of commercial appeal and gritty-ness of the underground. Enjoy the unfinished version of “American Terrorist Pt. 2″ after the jump. √+
