Artist Biography

Knock2, aka Richard Kahonethap, is a bass house DJ who came into the EDM scene in 2022. The previous year he released his now iconic bass house anthem “dashstar*” without any playlisting. This single exploded into millions of plays when major players including DJ Snake, Tiesto, and Joyryde got it to the 3rd slot on the 2023 EDCLV most-played list. Knock2 kept releasing other singles that garnered him millions of plays including “gettin’ hott” and PARANOiD,” which gave him a reputation for crafting a classic sound that EDM fans craved. In 2022, Knock2 debuted his headline show experience “Room202” at sold-out Los Angeles shows. These shows were conceptual warehouse sets that focused on having massive party energy instead of high production as seen in most EDM sets today. When Knock2 took his
“Room202” show to San Francisco and Salt Lake City, the shows sold out in minutes. He then went to Japan to play three sold-out shows. After releasing his 2023 EP “Room 202,” Knock2 took “Room202” across the U.S. for his first debut headline tour, selling out all nine shows instantly. This led to venue upgrades and an additional four dates added to the tour. In 2023, he made his festival debut at Coachella and HITC NYC. Later that year, he made his first headline slot at Imagine Music Festival doing a b2b with the one and only Dillon Francis. His debut album NOLIMIT is slated to be released in 2024.
