For Knife Party, the release of their debut EP 100% No Modern Talking today is almost an afterthought. The duo of Pendulum's Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen already made a splash when they debuted as a live act back in August at Ibiza's Space, and the subsequent video swept the internet. Critically-acclaimed remixes for Porter Robinson and Nero followed, with a high-profile collab with none other than the Swedish House Mafia, to boot. But alas, with fans clamoring for more, the duo is releasing their quartet of tunes on December 12th to much-anticipation. Three-quarters of the album takes that ballsy electro-house sound, riddled with bass, to the next level. "Internet Friends" is already internet famous; practically a Hitchcockian vignette of a web stalker's revenge. How many club tracks tell a story? "Destroy them with Lazers" and "Torniquet" keep the intensity high, please bass fiends and house nuts alike. The final track, "Fire Hive," dives deeply into old-school, dub-influenced dubstep. That is, until the hive bursts open with a thousand angry bass hornets screaming out in all directions. Frightening! 100% No Modern Talking will get 100% of the internet talking this Monday. Oh yeah, forgot to mention it's free.
