The Knocks Simulate 'Classic (ft. Powers)' With New Video Honoring the Cherished 00's 'The Sims' Video Game

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2014) -


"New York-based production duo The Knocks and Powers released "Classic," a weirdly timeless dance ~jam~ that sounds like getting kissed at sunset." - BUZZFEED

Dance duo The Knocks (comprised of LES/NY-based producers JPatt and B-Roc) drop a music video to accompany their feel-good, anytime anthem, 'Classic (ft. Powers)' out now via Big Beat Records -- spreading nostalgia to everyone's favorite classic computer game, The Sims -- while kicking off a perfect afternoon at the pool, complete with cotton candy, palm trees, and (thankfully) never-ending tropical drinks. Where can I download the cheat for this life?

This staple single 'Classic (ft. Powers)' caught summer playlists by storm, hitting #1 on Hype Machine (twice) in the matter of a few days, including a remix from RAC, while making its mark on best new music lists from Harper's Bazaar, NY Mag's Vulture, and Flavorwire. But, don't take their word for it -- catch them live on tour with RAC and St. Lucia at dates all over the country this fall! Full itinerary below.

Dance duo the Knocks have already proven that they have the chops to deliver a seriously bright summer banger, and now they repeat the feat. - SPIN
