It may be winter, but the temperature is always hot when Knock2 is around and putting his sounds on display. After an impressive last year of shows and music, this multi-genre producer has without a doubt solidified a name for himself. Things have been “gettin’ hott” for Knock2 with his releases on labels Sable Valley and NIGHTMODE, and now he’s back with his latest banger. “Make U SWEAT” is the first track off his forthcoming EP and latest NIGHTMODE release and it’s another one you simply won’t be able to get enough of.
Picture this, it’s finally summer and you’re surrounded by friends and like-minded humans at a festival. Knock2 takes the stage and gets the crowd moving and warmed up to his bass house and trap tunes, and all of a sudden you hear that rhythm you love start coming in. That sweet beat you can’t get enough of with the vocals you know by heart. You hear the clapping of the beat and “You know it’s getting hot,” things start to wind up, and then “I just wanna Make U SWEAT!” fills your ears. From there your feet start moving and you’re surrounded by a sea of fans shuffling around you under that festival sun.
Knock2 really knows how to pull listeners in and always brings energy with everything he creates. “Make U SWEAT!” is no different. This track is sure to be a festival anthem this year, especially with such an addictive and groovy bassline.
Be sure to catch him on his debut tour that he just announced, and immediately sold out dates in Brooklyn, Tempe, Denver, Portland, Austin, and Chicago. The Austin and Chicago shows are scaling the venue so more tickets can be released and there are also still tickets available for the Atlanta, Minneapolis, and Las Vegas stops!
“This record came about when I was planning and preparing for my debut headline show in LA. I wanted to open the show with a new song that was going to encapsulate the entire energy and vibe of the show, and it did just that.
Once I released the set of the show online and started opening all of my shows with it, the response has been so rewarding and unbelievable, with the crowd singing the melody line and going crazy, from San Francisco to Japan to Salt Lake City.”—Knock2
