The rate of Knife Party’s ascension to the forefront of a burgeoning electronic music movement is unparalleled and the pair have quickly risen to become one of the most exciting DJ and production duos on the planet today. Their music is a heady cocktail of sounds, combining electro, house, dubstep, moombahton and a plethora of other influences from trance synths to old horror movie samples, a style which they have simply coined as ‘seizure music’.
Knife Party made their debut in Ibiza in 2011 following the buzz created by monster track ‘Antidote’, in collaboration with Swedish House Mafia. This year they return to the White Isle with their second residency at Together at Amnesia as the bass heads return to San Rafael once again. Their debut EP ‘100% No Modern Talking’, charted at number 1 on the Beatport sales chart, despite first being given away for free and racking up over 500,000 downloads. The EP included the track ‘Internet Friends’ which consequently sent social networks into a feeding frenzy, ‘Internet Friends’ has since gone onto receive in excess of 15 million views on YouTube. Remixes for Nero and Labrinth soon followed, and in 2012 the EP ‘Rage Valley’ was released and as well as collaborations with Skrillex and Steve Aoki. With the focus now on their greatly anticipated return to SW4, following their storming debut last summer, plus the upcoming release of their ‘Haunted House’ EP, 2013 will see Knife Party raise the game to a whole new level.
