Knife Party Dubstep, Electro & House Intro
Knife Party, the new dubstep / drumstep is in face a side-project from the well known DnB artists Pendulum. Pendulum who coincidently faced huge critisism for the drum and bass faternity over their over-used loops (Hold Your Colour*) and then went massively commercial with a rock-edge seems to have completely gone off! Knife Party Dubstep lovers will be pleased to hear that their success has taken over Youtube! With more than eleven videos uploaded onto youtube within the last week, they seem to be gathering many fans extremely quickly!
Knife Party Dubstep, Electro and House are the flavours of the day and whilst its not strictly dubstep that they are producing, there are some crazy remixes out there!
UKF Bass Culture recently featured Knife Party as one of their headline acts and they answered all their critics by giving a sweat-inducing performance with huge, dirty and extremely heavy drops accross.
Knife Party offers another conduit for the parts of Pendulums sound that began to creep out on their last record “Immersion”.
Evolving from straight up drum and bass to chart topping hits and some ‘dubsteppier’ tracks, they seem to have decided that they need another compartment to channel these new sounds into. Knife Party is that experiment.
Drum and bass has been left behind for refined and commercial dance music, with some darker moments that make the Skrillex collaboration on track “Zoology” unsurprising.
While currently there is no album to speak of, some high profile remixes (Swedish House Mafia, Nero), support slots for similar names and some original tracks leaking through the radio waves are sure to cement them as a live favourite.
