When it comes to NYC nightlife, 5 years is a long time. In the fickle nightlife industry of New York City, EMM manages to stay on top with some of the best venues in town. In celebration of that great feat, Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum threw a grand bash last Friday night to ring in Tenjune's 5th anniversary.
Celebrity guests included Carmelo Anthony, Dwayne Wade, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Maxwell, and Lebron James just to name a few. DJ Runna and Swizz Beatz brought the beats while guests danced all night and morning (literally) thanks to Liquid Lightning energy drinks.
Start NYC's Fashion Week off right with a special, red carpet event that will support the RedLight Children. RedLight Children is a global human rights nonprofit organization that aims to end the demand for child slavery and exploitation. Human trafficking is a prominent, global crisis that is often overlooked, especially in the United States. Come out for a great night while supporting an admirable organization and learning how we can join together to support an important cause and end child slavery.
Joonbug recently had the chance to catch up with electronica duo and NYC locals, Benjamin “B-Roc” Ruttner and James “JPatt” Patterson, of The Knocks.
Not only are these guys rising stars here in the U.S., but they are blowing up on the international scene as well. After wrapping up the last stop on their Corona Light Tour at Tenjune last week, prompted by their Corona Light television ad, B-Roc and JPatt have brought their talents to Europe once again. Currently, The Knocks are on a massive festival-circuit that spans the continent of Europe. The electronica duo is being featured alongside of some of the biggest names in the industry, Calvin Harris, Busy P, SBTRKT and Boys Noize to name a few. Not bad for a couple of guys who started off by scrapping together just enough money to make their NYC-based studio, HeavyRoc Music, a few years ago.
The Knocks have an uncanny ability to consistently produce great music that has an enormous range. Back in 2008, Diplo recognized their talents and featured one of their remixes on the Paper Route Gangstaz’ “Fear & Loathing in Hunts Vegas” mixtape. Still, the scope of The Knocks extends beyond hip-hop and into club-bangers like their Peter Bjorn & John remix of “It Don’t Move Me.” More recently, The Knocks have breathed new life into Motown classics on their Same Old Songs free EP. Make sure to check out their stand-out cover of The Temptations' “Aint To Proud To Beg".
Over the course of their still young career, The Knocks have progressed from making mostly mash-ups and remixes to producing their own amazing tracks. Check out “Something I Can Dance To,” their funny and painfully relevant song “Blackout,” and “When You’ve Got Music” which was recently sampled by Chiddy Bang's song, “When you’ve Got Music.”
