The Knocks are about to turn 2017 into a real party. The New York City electronic duo are gearing up for a 20-plus date tour designed to get America on the “Feel Good Feel Great” tip, and to get things started, The Knocks are dropping a new EP.


Testify is out Feb. 3, on Big Beat/Neon Gold, and the first taste is this bouncy tune “Trouble,” featuring vocals from Absofacto.


"We originally wrote the song with Abso in NYC at our studio as a slow, piano ballad, at 90 bpm,” The Knocks say in a press release. “The idea was to write something that felt melancholy and classic.

Take a trip back to 1992 with today’s #BigBeatTBT, “Not Gonna Be Able To Do It” from Jersey City, NJ hip hop group, Double XX Posse. The single was featured on their debut album, Put Ya Boots On, released in August 1992 by Big Beat. “Not Gonna Be Able To Do It” hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs chart in December of the same year & sampled Jazz-bassist Buster Williams (also a NJ native) to form the addicting bassline behind the track.
