We were looking for a great track to keep everyone's weekend going and couldn't find anything new that quite hit the spot like this remix from The Knocks we've been sitting on for a couple of months. The New York duo that is on fire, recently letting loose the first single " from their upcoming EP, have taken on fellow New York producer Party Supplies' song "Going Back to New York" from his recent artist album Tough Love. Here are Ben Ruttner (B ROC) of The Knocks thoughts on making the song:
"When I heard this song it really struck a chord with me because of always being on the road away from NYC and instantly wanted to remix it. We wanted to make it the perfect soundtrack for a drive home to New York City."
Their goal for remixing the song was to create the perfect soundtrack for coming back to New York City, and I think they have managed to do so, yet no matter what city you are located you will find it hard to not get down to this song. Stream below and grab a free download thanks to The Knocks. Enjoy!
