KNARS Ready to Drop Hard-Hitting Politically-Charged D&B Anthem ‘Tear It All Down’


Check out the latest from KNARS, the groundbreaking Dutch electronic music powerhouse! Their newest single, ‘Tear it All Down,’ is dropping on Friday 17th May. Dive into this critical Drum & Bass anthem that delves deep into the flaws of capitalist systems and social injustices.

Drawing inspiration from real-world events like police brutality in the U.S. and the ongoing crisis in Palestine, ‘Tear it All Down’ fearlessly tackles themes of greed and corruption. KNARS brings raw energy and unapologetic defiance, delivering a rebellious outcry against injustice.

Martijn Holtslag fronts KNARS, bringing together fierce vocals, aggressive synths, and thought-provoking music videos. Hailing from Deventer, Netherlands, they burst onto the scene in 2017 with bass-driven hits like ‘Bad Trip’ and ‘Fuckup,’ later exploring deeper and more introspective themes. Their explosive live shows have earned them international acclaim, with appearances at major festivals and nods from music blogs. Notably, their track ‘Push it To the Limit’ was featured in the Borderlands 3 trailer, racking up 5 million views, and their music has been synced with Netflix originals. Martijn’s resilience in the face of adversity, as seen in the ‘Fuckup’ video after a public altercation, underscores KNARS’ commitment to authenticity and standing up against hate.

What really makes KNARS stand out isn’t just their message—it’s their music. They blend classic Gabber style with pulsating breakbeats and intense reese basses, capturing the relentless nature of the daily grind. And that iconic ‘hoover’ sound from Dutch Gabber culture? It gives the track a unique edge that’s sure to make it unforgettable.

Accompanying the single is a music video that drives home the urgency of KNARS’ message. Through captivating imagery and visceral storytelling, KNARS invites viewers to confront harsh realities and join the fight for a fairer world.

As KNARS gears up to release ‘Tear it All Down’, they’re calling on listeners to stand up against oppression and work towards a future where every voice matters.
