For more on The Knocks check out Rosa’s piece with the group.
The Knocks, known for their songs “Dancing With The DJ” and “Make It Better,” came together almost by accident. The duo comprised of Ben “DJ B-Roc” Ruttner and James “JPatt” Patterson met through a mutual friend during their early days in New York City when they were both college students. After being introduced they kept in touch and slowly began sending song ideas and beats back and forth. As time wore on the guys were ready to start the next chapter of their lives; luckily for them — and for us, they were both searching for an apartment at the same time.

The Knocks give us their first jam since signing to some independent label probably based out of Brooklyn. If you’re not familiar with these guy, please take your time to get to know them.
This one is hot.
A well done acoustic version of a song almost always gets the thumbs up from me. This is a cool listen. Great for these summer evenings we’re all looking forward to…
I’d like to say thank you.
But really though, when it comes to bars on beats I’m usually not terribly interested, but this is a really dope song. Several lyrical gems throughout too. Bravo.
