Just WOW! Having previously released a joint collaboration together–"Down 2 Get Up"–UK producer and outspoken dance music critic Mat Zo has shared what I consider one of the best remixes of 2015, a disco-fueled rendition of The Knocks "Collect My Love". This audible joyride lures you in with a cinematic build that highlights Alex Newell's powerful vocals before unveiling two beautiful drops that are guaranteed to get you on your feet and dancing. Maz Zo pours in all the feels and summer vibes to brighten up the darkest of days! Take a listen below and grab a copy when the remix is released August 28th. Enjoy

In an unexpected collaboration, The Knocks have teamed up with Powers and Fetty Wap, the man behind “Trap Queen,” which you all have inevitably gotten stuck in your head at some point or another. Fetty kicks off “Classic" with a rapping/singing verse showing off his knack for writing some of the catchiest hip hop out there right now. The Knocks bring a chill house meets nu-disco vibe with funky guitar riffs and bouncing melodic synths that set a perfect foundation for a Fetty verse and Power’s vocals to shine throughout. Enjoy!

Undeniably one of the biggest tracks off the recent Jack Ü album was Where Are Ü Now featuring Justin Bieber. New York City based Nu-Disco masters The Knocks released part three of their Summer Bootleg Series today choosing to remix the ever-popular track. I’ve heard a few other remixes already but The Knocks version might be the most complete and full sounding one to date. Fusing their signature nu-disco melodies with layers of wind instruments and other subtle samples combined with the smooth Bieber vocals, this remix really becomes something special. No sign of a release date or download but enjoy the stream below.

One of our favorite New York acts is without a doubt the always fresh duo The Knocks. We’ve featured them an extensive amount on TSIS over the years. Well the guys have been locked in the studio for the past few months and have said they have accumulated nearly 3 albums worth of material. To celebrate the end of the studio sessions they have released a brand new song “Dancing With Myself”, and while there’s no details on if this is on an upcoming album or just a one off, it’s pretty amazing. We hear a slightly downtempo side full of infectious synths and piano lines and even an epic sax solo at the very end of the track. Enjoy!
