One of the highlights at the Treasure Island Music Festival 2016 was the afternoon set by SOFI TUKKER. The origins of the band dates back just a few years back when the pair met at an art gallery where Hawley-Weld was performing when Halpern remixed a song right on the spot. Though the pair was interested in making music together, things didn’t really take shape until a chance opportunity for Halpern, who was a producer/DJ, to open for The https://www.b-sides.tv/wp-admin/post.php?post=14450&action=edit#edit_timestampKnocks came about. After listening to a few demos, The Knocks convinced Halpern to pursue the collaboration with Hawley-Weld further.
SOFI TUKKER took a moment after their set during the Treasure Island Music Festival 2016 to speak with B-Sides On-Air host Pete Mar about their chance encounter, the energy at their live shows and more. Check out the interview:
