FKX092 – Fort Knox Recordings
The onslaught of killer remixes continues! Skiitour and All Good Funk Alliance bring fire & funk to their remixes of the latest Fort Knox Five single, Fire In My Belly featuring Ashley Slater.
One of our favorite artists to emerge from Whistler, British Columbia is the mighty duo Skiitour, who are well known for their amazing dj sets and top notch production. They managed to transform the funk of the original track into a solid house banger with piano stabs, big bass drops and clever vocal loops. Already a big hit in Fort Knox Five DJ sets, this remix is a sure-fire dancefloor smash!
Not to be outdone, All Good Funk Alliance pump up the synths and sonics in their full-vocal remix. Super Hi-Fi synthesizers and effects lay on top of precise beats to create a mid-tempo tune that exists somewhere between electro and indie nu-disco. The AGFA boys have turned in a dope remix which captures their signature sound and reimagines Fire In My Belly with a heavy dose of future funk.
Longtime collaborator Ashley Slater re-emerges on Fire In My Belly as the super cool soul crooner, lending his suave vocals and sultry trombone licks to create a modern funk-soul classic. In typical Fort Knox Five fashion, the funk bubbles over chunky hip-hop beats, creating a booty-shaking romp for the dancefloor. New Orleans style horns and Rob Myers funky wah-wah guitar lines provide the perfect groove for Ashley’s retro-funky vibe.
