In our effort to always keep things as fresh and weird at the same time, we couldn't be more stoked to drop this gem of a Fixtapé on you. The weather is still hot as shit in our neck of the woods and we've called upon the mermaids and sirens from the Tropics to help keep things nautical.
Straight out of the Lower East Side, our dudes Ben "DJ B-Roc" Ruttner and James "JPatt" Patterson make up the magic duo known as The Knocks. These guys have infused their own radical, unique style into this Fixtape and we promise it won't disappoint. So whether yer grinding at the 9-5, weaving through Greenwich traffic on your Solé, or cruising the GWB to make a visit to your late-night lady friend in Jersey, this mix is sure to get you going...

A little more about this month's artist:
Everyone can now make music. The increasing access to music related technology and the liquid flow of music and information is a blessing to aspiring musicians, but a curse to those who have to sift through the terrible mash-ups and tunes in order to find quality music. Based out of New York City’s Lower East Side, The Knocks are taking a stand and reclaiming good music for all.
The Knocks have since produced original material and remixes for Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Marina & the Diamonds, and now their own music. With heavy rotation on Australia’s Triple J, their single “Make It Better” was released on Neon Gold Records and their hit “Dancing With the DJ” was #1 on both the Hype Machine and Japan’s iTunes. The Knocks have been taking their energetic live dance party all over the world, including their sold out NYC Bowery Ballroom debut, Tammany Hall headlining show and their European tour with Sleigh Bells and M.I.A. They’ve shared the stage with acts like Big Boi, Chromeo, and just finished a U.S. tour with Ellie Goulding. Be prepared, because The Knocks will be knocking at your door and stereo very soon.
