Electronic dance music duo Knife Pary was formed in Australia in 2011. It consists of Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen, who used to be part of Pendulum band. The duo is particularly famous for their single “Antidote”, which reached the 4th spot on the UK Singles Chart.
The project Knife Party was announced at the beginning of summer 2011. The first remix by Rob and Gareth to the track “Save The World’ Swedish House Mafia” appeared online in June 2011. The song was released later as part of the compilation album Save the World (Remixes).
In August 2011, Swire and McGrillen performed live for the first time as part of a DJ set on Ibiza. During that time they still worked closely with Pendulum and were on a festival tour with the band. Once the tour was over, the young men started spending more time on the Knife Party project.
On September 12th, 2011, the band released “Unison (Knife Party Remix)” as part of the EP Porter Robinson “Spitfire”. A month later they released “Crush On You (Knife Party Remix)”.
