Future Music – Knife Party In Line Up

There are few artists on the planet at the moment hotter than Knife Party.

The side project of Pendulum members Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen, Knife Party dispenses with the drum’n’bass that the Perth boys are known for, concentrating instead on music of a more twisted nature with dubstep, electro and house influences. That being said, pigeonhole them at your peril – anything goes with this lot. Thus far they have collaborated with Swedish House Mafia’s on the almighty ‘Antidote’, remixed Nero’s ‘Crush On You’ and Porter Robinson’s ‘Unison’ and played their first ever gig at Space, Ibiza. Their debut EP 100% No Modern Talking released in December rocketed straight to the top of the Beatport charts.

Not only are the boys bringing their own brand of ‘seizure music’ to Future Music Festival but they have personally hand picked the crew that will join them for the ride. Presenting their own purpose-built ‘Ear Storm Records’ (Knife Party’s record label) Stage for a world exclusive.  This is not going to be for the faint hearted. Expect an all out attack on your aural and visual senses, expect truck loads of bass, an arsenal of lasers – and last but not least – an exclusively tailored line up that will devastate every city this army of electronic terrorists descend on!

Joining Knife Party are Dubstep innovator Flux Pavilion (UK) with his trademark smashing rhythms and manic baselines, Porter Robinson (US) the young but masterful genre spanning producer fresh from his mighty US College Invasion tour. Another US hotshot joining the part is Kill the Noise, the red hot producer who supported Tiesto on his Kaleidoscope World Tour in North America and tying up the stage in fine yet raucous fashion is UK radio star, tastemaker and prolific DJ in his own right, Zane Lowe.

Knife Party (AUS/UK)

The side project of Pendulum members Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen, Knife Party dispenses with the drum’n’bass that the Perth boys are known for, concentrating instead on music with more electro, house and dubstep influences. That being said, pigeonhole them at your peril – anything goes with this lot. Thus far they’ve remixed Swedish House Mafia’s Save The World, Nero’s Crush On You and Porter Robinson’s Unison, played their first ever gig at Space, Ibiza, and are set to release their much- anticipated debut EP 100% No Modern Talking in December 2011.

Flux Pavilion (UK)

Dubstep was perhaps the defining genre of 2011, and Joshua Steele aka Flux Pavilion is one of its most innovative exponents. He blends hard, smashing rhythms and manic basslines with his own singing and instrumental talent, gaining him a loyal audience in the UK and abroad with his unique take on the dubstep sound. All the big names (including Rusko, Caspa and Plastician) have blasted his tunes all over the world, and his performances on Rinse and Kiss FM have solidified his reputation. He’s even had his track I Can’t Stop sampled on Jay-Z and Kanye’s Watch the Throne album – definitely one to watch in 2012 and beyond.

Porter Robinson (USA)

Porter Robinson is 19-year old wunderkind producer from North Carolina who has already remixed Lady Gaga and graced stages internationally alongside the biggest names in music, such as Tiesto, Deadmau5, Afrojack, Moby and A-Trak. With a skillfulness belying his age, Porter has rapidly ascended the ranks of the international electronic music scene, captivating audiences with his ability to skillfully blend genres into his own unique sound that’s complex yet catchy, and classic yet cutting edge. He counts Skrillex as one of his biggest fans and was recruited to join his label, which released his debut EP Spitfire in September 2011. The EP amply demonstrates his masterful eclecticism, spanning across moods of electro house, dubstep, moombahton and even trance, and including remixes from Knife Party, Kill The Noise and others.

Kill The Noize (USA)

Californian Jake Stanczak, better known as Kill The Noise, exploded into the electro house scene when he launched the project in January of ’08, and his subsequent productions have earned him recognition from both house music fanatics, world- class DJs and dubstep enthusiasts alike. He has a record label partnership with the legendary DJ Craze and his busy worldwide touring schedule most recently saw him perform on Tiesto’s Kaleidoscope World Tour in North America. There’s currently a debut album in the works, but in the meantime Australian fans can make do with witnessing him push the boundaries of dance music live and in person.

Zane Lowe (UK)

In the legendary world of UK radio, there are few bigger stars on the airwaves than Zane Lowe. Presenting his own self-titled show on BBC Radio 1 four nights a week, Zane is a certified tastemaker whose reputation for breaking hot new acts, the next big single and stars of the future is second to none, think household names like Arctic Monkeys, Bloc Party, Kasabian and Kaiser Chiefs. A DJ in his own right, Zane’s mash-up, genre-defying sound has seen him play support roles for the likes of Muse, Foo Fighters and The Prodigy at sold- out stadium gigs, and feature at club nights and special events all over the UK. When these two heavyweights team up, expect things to get epic!
