New York City-based electronic duo The Knocks (comprised of Ben “B-Roc” Ruttner
and James “JPatt” Patterson) have been releasing music and touring for more than 10
years. With superstar collaborations under their belt (Carly Rae Jepen, X
Ambassadors, Wyclef Jean) and sharing the stage with A-list artist such as Justin
Bieber, Ellie Goulding, and The 1975, was a breakout year for the duo.
Their second full-length LP New York Narcotic, released on September 28 th, 2018
through Neon Gold/Big Beat Records, featured a slew of incredible guest vocalists
including Foster the People, Method Man, Big Boi, Sir Sly, Alexis Krauss from Sleigh
Bells and Sofi Tukker; while also seeing the emergence of JPatt as a true frontman
and multi-faceted vocalist!
The album highlights included their smashing single “Ride or Die” ft. Foster the
People which has garnered over 28 Million streams, hitting #1 on iTunes Dance, 22+
weeks on Billboard Dance chart and 16+ weeks on the Billboard Alternative chart
plus an appearance on Late Night w/ Stephen Colbert;
alongside “Goodbyes” feat. Method Man from the legendary Wu Tang
Clan. “Ride Or Die” also received a hilarious companion visual that parodies
cult classic movies handpicked from The Knocks throughout, including Pulp
Fiction, Rocky and Men In Black. Also, the vibey track (along with its
killer lyric video) “Shades” features vocals from JPatt and is currently playing
in Hyundai’s tv/radio/online ad campaign.
Earlier in the year, The Knocks’ collaborated with Sofi Tukker on the song “Best Friend”,
which reached #1 on the iTunes Dance, US Dance Radio, Billboard Commercial,
Billboard Dance/Mix Show and the Shazam Dance Charts. It also hit #3 on
the Shazam Worldwide Main Charts, debuted during Apple’s Keynote address, and
went on to become the soundtrack to prominent iPhone X advertisements. B-
Roc and JPatt also appeared on The Tonight Show w/ Jimmy
Fallon and TRL alongside Sofi Tukker and NERVO to perform the track.
