[PREMIERE] Oliver Share Funk-Fueled Remix Of The Knocks & Captain Cuts' “House Party”

Oliver The Knocks

LA-based production duo and funk masters Oliver are back with a vibrant new remix that we’re happy to premiere on the site today. This release comes on the heels of the artists’ 15-track album Full Circle, a stacked offering that pays homage to all things funk and branches into other genres, as well. Today Oliver have shared their disco-driven take on The Knocks and Captain Cuts' bouncy single “House Party,” and it’s sounding great.  

"One of our favorite bands, Kano, was the main inspiration on this one. We had a lot of fun just taking it back to the basics and making some disco." - Oliver

From the old-school synths and deep bass chords to the awesomely cheeky cowbell, this remix will take you on a funkified journey from start to finish. The duo lead with a stark beat and the familiar spoken vocal sample from the original, masterfully blending in layer after layer of groovy production and live instrumentation from there. The many moving parts and overall disco-tinged vibe of this remix will no doubt get you moving – check it out below and enjoy!

The Knocks have been keeping pretty busy over the past year.

Today they've continued their streak by teaming up with Captain Cuts on a brand new single titled, “House Party”. 

The Knocks and LA-based trio Captain Cuts took things in an unique house direction on this latest offering. Driven by a warbling piano melody and bouncy bassline, the track slowly progresses in and out of soulful choruses, minimalistic percussion breaks and playfully staggered verses, making for an groovy, party-minded undertaking.

Mat Zo and The Knocks are familiar faces on TSIS, both consistently dropping work that’s impressed fans everywhere for quite some time. Both have also had successful years so far, with The Knocks dropping their fresh Testify EP and Mat Zo dropping an innovative remix of Noisia’s “Mantra.” Even so, today the three unveiled what will undoubtedly be their biggest announcement of 2017 – a joint project titled The Mary Nixons. Along with this exciting new group comes their explosive first single, “Adrian.”

“Adrian” is an infectiously upbeat debut track for the group, gripping you from the first note with captivating, slightly twangy vocals and a simple xylophone lead-in. The producers add layer upon layer of production from there, creating a sound that constantly builds upon itself while still allowing the vocals to shine through. In addition to this, the track also features a lyric video that really drives the vibe of the song home. All in all, “Adrian” is an intoxicating summer single that captures the essence of the season perfectly. Check it out below and enjoy!
