Fort Knox Five ‘Radio Free D.C.’ (Fort Knox Recordings)

Fort Knox Five is a leading force in the international funk and breaks scene.  Sid Barcelona, Jon Horvath, Rob Myers and Steve Raskin are the masterminds behind Fort Knox Five and have released an arsenal of floor rocking singles and remixes.  Their renowned ‘Fort Knox Sound’ has overtaken dance floors with its distinct interweaving of live instrumentation with funky electronic breakbeats.  Fort Knox Five’s talent for organic hooks has made them highly sought after by producers and remixers. They have over 20 remixes to their credit, including mixes for A. Skillz and Krafty Kuts, Kraak & Smaak (The Remix Sessions) , Ursula 1000 (Ursadelica), Dynamo Productions, and Mo’ Horizons (Some More Horizons), as well as remixes for the legendary Tito Puente, Louis Armstrong, and Bob Marley (Roots, Rock, Remixed). Further cementing Fort Knox Five’s reputation, Afrika Bambaataa—the godfather of hip-hop—asked them to produce four tracks on his album, Dark Matter Moving at the Speed of Light.

Tapped by URB Magazine for its annual “Next 100” list, Fort Knox Five ’s music has been featured on major compilations including the highly regarded Hotel Costes, Vol. 7: Sept and has been licensed to numerous films, television shows, commercials and video games. They also recently finished production on six original interactive tracks in the Fort Knox style for a major video game soundtrack.

For their highly anticipated debut album, Radio Free Dc, Fort Knox Five take things back to their roots and keep the vibe centered around Washington D.C. Home to many pioneering artists like Marvin Gaye, Chuck Brown and Fugazi, they draw upon their city’s rich musical heritage of funk, soul, punk and hip-hop for their inspiration. Fort Knox Five invited their close friends from around the Nation’s Capitol, including Asheru (Unspoken Heard), Mustafa Akbar, Rootz & Zeebo (See-I), Sleepy Wonder and Ian Svenonius (Nation of Ulysses/The Make Up) to help them create a record that captures DC’s musical diversity.

    This is a great album… you really can hear the ghosts of the past influence their sound. (Marvin Gaye, Chuck Brown and Fugazi) Good stuff!
