Based out of our fine Lower East Side, The Knocks are emerging as a force to be reckoned with as far as music production is concerned. Consisting of Ben "DJ B-Roc" Ruttner and James "JPatt" Patterson, the duo is named in reference to the early days of their production career when they worked out of their home studios.

The boys have garnered a ton of critical acclaim for their mixes of tracks from Marina and the Diamonds, Passion Pit Wale and more. So much so that a certain pop star commissioned the kids to rework her tri-nogamous new single.

The dudes say: "We were asked to remix Britney's new hit single 3. It is an official remix so will be being released by Jive Records with the single and will be available to purchase on itunes this week. Other official remixes done by Discotech, Wolfgang Gartner & more."

It's safe to say we're pretty enamored with their take on the track. Give a listen to the equally killer club and radio edits from the boys.
