Today, rising San Diego DJ/producer Knock2 teams up with dance music titan NGHTMRE for a highly-anticipated collaboration “One Chance (feat. Marlhy)”, out now via 88rising and available on all streaming platforms. “One Chance” is Knock2’s inaugural single via the pioneering 88rising label.
“One Chance” is a natural collaboration between the two heavy-hitter DJs who have shared the stage and teased the single on many occasions over the past year – from NGHTMRE’s appearance at Brooklyn Mirage to Knock2’s debut Los Angeles headline. ““From the first time I heard a Knock2 track, I knew he was going to revitalize the entire sound that I fell in love with when I started,” says NGHTMRE, “He is insanely talented and it was an honor to work on this record with him.”
The track is sure to be a regular on the festival circuit this summer with its monstrous production, driving BPM, and sultry vocals from Marlhy – it begs to be heard live. On the collaboration, Knock2 says, “I’m really proud of how the record turned out. I love playing it out anytime I get the chance.”
2023 has been a landmark year for Knock2, as he rides the continued success of breakthrough hit “dashstar*”, a ubiquitous festival anthem with 26+ million Spotify streams. In January, Knock2 released his widely acclaimed ROOM202 EP – which spawned party-ready hits like “Make U SWEAT!” and “rock ur world” – and took his ROOM202 concept around North America for a debut headline tour. The 13-date tour sold-out instantly; which led to a series of venue upgrades and additional dates. Knock2 also made his festival debuts at Coachella and 88rising’s Head in the Clouds Festival New York to overflowing crowds and frenzied energy.
Looking to the future, Knock2 is bringing his ROOM202 experience to Europe, with a sold-out London headline at Ton of Brix and a debut appearance at Lollapalooza Paris. With a mountain of anticipated IDs, his first festival headline slot at Imagine Festival (performing b2b with Dillon Francis); Knock2 is poised to become one of the biggest figures in dance music, charting his own course and breaking all the rules.
