The Knocks are finishing out 2017 strong, contributing to Sofi Tukker’s “Best Friend” (you know, the apple commercial song) and their recent single “House Party” with production savants Captain Cuts. Several remixes have emerged over the past few weeks by Oliver, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano and Doorly and now we are happy to premiere a new one from BUKU.
The song starts the same with J Patt wondering if it’s a disco thing, a club thing or even a street thing. He just doesn't know. Then BUKU mixes in his secret sauce to the song and adds some heavy distortion to the tune, almost like the speakers at the house party were getting pushed to the max and blowing out, but in a good way. BUKU mixes in some more verses from The Knocks with drums and spacey synths.
“For this remix I wanted to do something a little different, so I explored a vibe that was a little groovier and broken,” BUKU explains to Magnetic. “I love to explore newer musical territory, and this remix is a product of that.”
The remix will be released tomorrow, December 15 via Big Beat/Atlantic. Until then, you can stream it right here, right now.
