Electronic duo/producer team The Knocks are experts at making their mark on the work of other artists. They’ve crafted remixes for big names like Katy Perry and Britney Spears. They also create original music, and their latest production, a cover of M83’s single “Midnight City,” infuses the track with the polished electronic style of their own work. The NYC-based pair enlist vocalist Mandy Lee to round out their cover.
The Knocks, like many other too-hot-to-handle producers, are a duo moving up in the world and adding ‘being in a band’ to their already impressive resume. The Lower East Side duo have done everything from lending their club-ready beats to majors such as Rihanna to remixing the likes of Passion Pit and Katy Perry. Luckily for your workout playlist, they have now moved to the realm of Motown covers with the Temptations’ “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg.”
