Knife Party drop thunderous new ID during live launch of ‘Knifecast’ podcast
Knife Party listeners have an opportunity to become better “Internet Friends” with the momentous dubstep duo via “Knifecast,” a radio show-style podcast that gathers Knife Party constituents Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen behind the mic to talk a variety of topics, and as “Knifecast” continues to roll out episodes, to presumably share news about forthcoming releases. Knife Party kicked off the show’s live debut on September 20. Swire and McGrillen introduced the “Knifecast” concept as one that rests “halfway between a podcast and playing music” and were adamant that they didn’t want to just produce a weekly mix. Knife Party additionally plans to host guests, and on-air Q&A sessions featuring fan-submitted questions as “Knifecast” further develops.
Knife Party provided a memorable finale to their inaugural installment of “Knifecast” with their inclusion of a lengthy ID at the episode’s end. A dub-heavy number that wasn’t wanting for wubs, the ID is a heady combination of gritty vocal overlays and wallops of bass. Technical elements aside, the ID indicates that new Knife Party music could be on its way very soon, and “Knifecast” appears to be the primary vehicle of any ensuing new material’s debut.
