Very few singles over the past few years have incorporated everyday sounds and samples quite like ‘Internet Friends’. The second those footsteps get played, the crowd knows it’s in for a pulsating drop. With the anticipation for the drop built with ringtones, doorbells, and female vocals, there’s nothing quite like this one. This single by Knife Party caught the ears of millions with its innovative build up and pre-drop vocal “you blocked me on Facebook, and now you’re going to die”, receiving over 50 million streams and has since stayed as the duo’s second most popular single on Spotify, behind ‘Bonfire’.
Known for their eclectic live sets and even crazier production style, Gareth McGrillen and Rob Swire, better know as Knife Party, have dominated our sound systems for years. Knife Party originally started as a side project but quickly emerged as one of the brightest acts in the dance music scene. In the early 2010s, the pair made an early splash with the multi-platinum ‘Antidote’, a collaboration with Swedish House Mafia. They then went on to release a handful of EPs that charted across the globe, issuing their official debut full-length, ‘Abandon Ship’, in 2014.
