Watch It Wednesday: The Knocks & Kah-Lo – ‘Awa Ni’

A production and DJ duo who specialize in melodic, carefree dance music that draws from soul, funk, disco, rap, and pop, The Knocks were formed in 2008 by James “JPatt” Patterson and Ben “DJ B-Roc” Ruttner. Patterson and Ruttner met at New York City’s New School and shared an apartment, where they set up small recording studios in their bedrooms. Since, they have the masterminds behind this centuries hottest tracks like “Best Friend” with Sofi Tukker which peaked at #81 on Billboard’s Hot 100, “Summer Luv” with Whethan featuring Crystal Fighters, and “Exit Sign” featuring Gallant. Without fail, The Knocks give us something inspiring to dance to.

Now with their latest release, we are dancing to what feel like island vibes with Kah-Lo, Nigerian singer-songwriter known for her work on ‘Rinse and Repeat’ by British DJ, Riton. The tune is a breezy trip through sun soaked streets and the perfect tune to escape the dooming winter chill. Paired with the new music brings in a whole new element to the experience. Taking it to a joyful level, we see smiles, swings, and swarms of kids doing what they do best, enjoying life. Reminding us that the world is our playground,  “Awa Ni” is the perfect track for Watch It Wednesday. Check it out below.
