A new song by Aussie duo Knife Party "Begin Again" has just surfaced being uploaded by an unknown Soundcloud account. We got a taste of their upcoming EP a few weeks back with the song "Resistance" which was a bass heavy electro festival banger following in the style we have grown to expect from Knife Party.
Well today after listening to "Begin Again" we hear a completely new side of Knife Party, bringing in some influences of their other project Pendelum as far as more focused on melodies then the drop, which this song doesn't really have. We also hear Rob Swire of Knife Party / Pendelum lay down some of his own vocals, which makes us remember when he did the same thing for deadmau5's iconic "Ghosts N Stuff".
Listen below to the preview and we will keep you posted on details as they roll in. What are your thoughts on the change of pace from Knife Party? Enjoy.

What happens when three stand out electro-house producers come together as one to breath new life into iconic indie rock band Yeah Yeah Yeah's breakout single "Maps" is a thing of beauty as Tommie Sunshine, CID, and Modern Machines discovered! The trio of talent allow their creativity to take the best of them as they implant a progressive house adaptation over the original while still allowing the prominent vocals to shine through. Tommie Sunshine had this to say about the release:
What you're hearing is a lot of love, some of these guys (including myself) used to play this end of the night track a decade ago in the Lower East Side of Manhattan so its meaning has many layers to all of us involved.
You may have heard this anthem played out at clubs and festivals this summer with the likes of Tommy Trash, Steve Aoki, Kaskade, and many more already playing it out. You can stream the exclusive premiere below and grab yourself a free download thanks to the Tommie Sunshine as well! Enjoy
