Label: Fort Knox Recordings
Catalog #: FKX109
Building on the momentum of last year’s hit single “Don’t Go” Fort Knox Five return to the studio to collaborate with bcap, a fresh rhymeslayer from Boston, on the new tune “Give It A Minute.” The sound of this new single reflects FK5’s musical sensibilities and exposure to new sounds from touring worldwide. The result is a catchy, Future Funk, bass-heavy, Go-Go meets Glitch-Hop track that is sure to shake booties around the globe.
After Fort Knox Five remixed “Smoke Machine” by Ursula 1000 featuring bcap on vocals, they were eager to get him in the studio for an original production. Brian Capobianchi, aka bcap, first vibed with the Fort Knox family while WXGR was lauching ESL Radio a few years ago, in support of Thievery Corporation and their label. Recorded around the New Year, bcap’s party-rocking and thought-provoking lyrics were dropped on top of some raw beats and his bluesy, NOLA-style vocals – in the vein of Dr. John – inspired Fort Knox Five’s production.
The Washington, DC infuence can be heard throughout the track, with giant Roto-toms, a steady pulsing beat and a relentless Go-Go percussion workout. As usual, guitars rule the day for Fort Knox Five. Where other producers might use synthesizers, the group puts the guitar in the spotlight, treating it as a synth throughout. Rob Myers’ funky, rubber band licks provide the melody and the hooks, while the chunky beats and sub-bass propel the song. With nods to old-school retro-funk and the native Go-Go scene, “Give It A Minute” sets a new standard for the future sound of DC.
The DC Funk Parade picked Future Funk as the 2017 theme and “Give It A Minute” could be the anthem for the event. As bcap says in the track “Still the people keep playin’ my song.” Get ready to hear this infectious, funky-groover at festivals and boomin’ out of Jeeps all summer long! Stay tuned for remixes coming soon, while an instrumental version is also included on the single.
