Knife Party

Knife Party is an Australian electro house/dubstep duo founded by two members of the electronic rock band Pendulum; Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen.

Knife Party played their debut performance at Space, Ibiza on 5 August 2011, and released a free download of their set the following day. On 12 August 2011, Knife Party featured on Annie Mac's Radio 1 minimix. The mix featured early versions of several Knife Party tracks; Intro, Tourniquet, Antidote, Save the World (Knife Party Remix), Internet Friends, Zoology, Sleaze, The Box, Fire Hive, Suffer and Crush on You (Knife Party Remix).

Their first EP, 100% No Modern Talking was released digitally through Pendulum's imprint record label EarStorm. It was released as free download from their official website, Soundcloud and Facebook, as well as being available for purchase on Beatport and iTunes on 12 December 2011. The EP originally was to feature 'Back to the Z-List' but was replaced with 'Destroy Them with Lazers' as the duo had decided to abandon the track. A tweet on 6 December 2011 suggested the possibility of a remix EP in the future. The EP title refers to the lack of "Modern Talking", an oscillator in the software synthesiser NI Massive commonly used to create "talking" basslines.
