Yesterday Apple announced the upcoming release of the iPhone X featuring face recognition and ‘animojis’. The visual walkthrough of the phone’s upgraded capabilities was set to Sofi Tukker’s “Best Friend”, which enjoyed a simultaneous drop and was the perfect vehicle to deliver the news. The tropical infused song is touted as a ‘friendship song’ and keeping in that theme features NERVO, The Knocks and Alisa Ueno.

Watch the full ad below and stream two new remixes by Sofi Tukker.

LA-based songwriter turned indie-pop artist Phoebe Ryan recently released her highly addictive new single “Chronic” and today shares an official remix of the track from The Knocks. Phoebe was recently featured on The Knocks’ debut album on the single “Purple Eyes” and this remix sees the two continuing their music magic.

Be sure to catch Phoebe live while she’s on tour supporting YouTube sensation Charlie Puth.

Sofi Tukker is the brainchild of NY duo Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern. Their songs burst through with pop-infection and Brazilian influences, and their soundcloud has been on constant repeat for a while now.

We heard through the grapevine that they’ve released their The Knocks remix, and this one brings fresh new energy and a revived love for the duo. For those in NY today, make sure to check out their CMJ show as well.

The Knocks’ new track “Time” is the kind of song you want to be blasting on your convertible car stereo with the top down while driving down a coastal road in Miami. Do you feel the wind blowing in your hair? I sure do. The track is featured in The Knocks’ recently released “So Classic” EP, which also includes The Knocks’ 2014 smash hit “Classic.” Take a listen to “Time” below and head on over to iTunes to grab the full EP.

NY duo The Knocks comes off the immense success of the dancefloor hit “Classic” with a slower groove “Dancing With Myself.” Featuring the silky smooth vocals of JPatt with additional vocoder work, “Dancing With Myself” is a sexy time tune with a dirty bass and guitar work by Ross Clark of St. Lucia. Fall in love with this one.

We’re heading to the desert this weekend, are you coming too? That’s right, Coachella is upon us and even if you weren’t able to snag a ticket to the festival there’s still plenty of magic happening outside of those polo grounds. Our favorite pick is The Saguaro Desert Weekender taking place at one of our favorite hotels in the whole wide world. Check up the lineup for the 3 day extravaganza along with a nice little mix from The Knocks to set the mood. You can RSVP at http://thesaguarodesertweekender.com/.
