UK based artist KNIGHT$ is back with the Alligator EP (13/10/17) produced by Martin Dubka (Tesla Boy/Ali Love) and KNIGHT$ himself.
Known to some for his work with Boytronic and Scarlet Soho, this is James at his Britalo best.
Alligator invites the listener to hold tight and join KNIGHT$ on a three minute, breakneck journey through synth city. It contains the same 70’s disco flourishes as the debut release, the rhetoric now much bolder.
B-side Playin’ It Cool has all the swagger of Clio and Chromeo, but James’ silky male tenor bringing something new to the party.
The EP features Alligator remixes from Italo legends and hit makers Fred Ventura/Paolo Gozzetti (Italoconnection Milano) and Leeds based newcomer Jake Wiltshire (Super Hexagon).
Since the release of What’s Your Poison?, KNIGHT$ has entered the live sphere with maximum impact. Triumphant performances in London and Prague set the tone for an explosive 2017, which culminated in an unforgettable display at the infamous Chantals House of Shame party in Berlin. Excerpts from the show have been used in the Alligator promo video.
