After the release of Best You’ve Never Heard 5 late last month, I began listening to DWNTWN like crazy. When I heard they were performing with The Knocks at The Satellite in Silver Lake, I knew I had to be there. It was my first time at this venue and I was very impressed with the set up. It has a very intimate and amazing atmosphere with a diverse crowd. Anyone will have a great time!
I first arrive with DWNTWN beginning their set. They are a very unique duo with a indie/electro/pop sound. They are extremely talented and have great stage presence. Even though they performed well, I do believe they need a third member of their group (at least for live performances). Their instrumentals are amazing. However if they had a drummer or beat maker for live performances, it will make an already amazing group even better. Check out my favorite track by DWNTWN below.

Right after DWNTWN killed it, New York based disco/house duo The Knocks came on stage and lit it up! Not only are they great at producing and remixing, they are also legitimate singers as well. They have great vocals and lyricism. When they come on stage, the whole atmosphere turns into a big party immediately. Their music will soon be on the radio. Below is their best track. Enjoy!
