Boogaloo Art Car & Music Festival is back to carry on the traditional weekend of madness April 28th-30th! After throwing down for the dirtiest electronic music festival of last year, we want you to help us make 2017 bigger, badder, and Boogier than ever.

Boogaloo Art Car & Music Festival is what happens to an electronic music festival when the rules get thrown out the window and the art cars and campers take over. It’s no pretense, all nonsense, and 72 hours of dusty madness. The most joyous, vibrant, and rowdy electronic music crews from all over the country will come together in the beautiful wilderness of Oak Canyon Ranch, Silverado (near Los Angeles) to get weird, to get real, and do dance all weekend to the best DJ’s in house music, techno, bass, and funk!

RSVP & Invite your friends on Facebook here.

Getting the chance to record in the studio with soul legend Sir Joe Quarterman was one of the highlights of the year for Fort Knox Five, and the track Don’t Go became an instant funk classic. As soon as the single was released, we heard from some of our close friends who were eager to rework the track and we are proud to present these two fine remixes from K+Lab and Trotter.

First up is New Zealand’s own K+Lab, who brings live synths and keys to the forefront on his glitched out funky bass remix. The original vocals and horns are layered on top of his beefed up beats and heavy bass stabs. This remix takes the soul of the original and injects it with a heavy dose of modern glitched out funk transforming it into a dancefloor scorcher.

Not to be outdone is Trotter, our man in Sao Paulo, who strips out the original’s retro funk feel replacing it with a swinging future funk vibe. Bouncing and bubbling synth lines run throughout the remix, dominating the track to create a modern P-Funk groove. Trotter’s remix shows his versatile production skills by tweaking the old school flavor of the original track and bringing it into the new millennium.

Fort Knox Recordings is stoked to start the new year with a bang, enlisting two fantastic artists who delivered their debut Fort Knox Five remixes on this single. These remixes take the track in two distinct directions; glitch-hop and future funk, however they both follow Sir Joe’s advice, “Step back three times, aww turn it around!” Instrumental version of both tracks are also available, making this a must have for funk DJs across the globe.
