From crushing it at Red Rocks opening for the Thievery Corporation live band to playing Lightning In A Bottle, What The Festival, Sonic Bloom, Shambhala, Bass Coast, Raindance, and Wakarusa, we can easily say that Fort Knox Five have had a very busy year – both in the clubs and out on the festival circuit. In fact, it was at the 2009 Earthdance Festival in Laytonville, California that the group was introduced to the Crown City Rockers and vocalist Raashan Ahmad. A connection was made and a promise was spoken to collaborate. Fast forward five years to 2014 and we find Raashan adding his distinctive vocals to “Ready Go”, the first new Fort Knox Five material we’ve heard in years.

Raashan Ahmad’s high-energy party rocking lyrics are the perfect match for Fort Knox Five’s distinctive funk stylings. The lyric “I live for the funk, I die for the funk, from the days of the Humpty Hump to the future” sums up this tune perfectly as it blends retro g-funk vibes from the West Coast with electronic dancefloor funk from the Nation’s Capital. True to form, Fort Knox Five incorporate horns and funky guitar lines throughout, so that “Ready Go” emerges as a disco-funk dance floor jam. Fort Knox Five got two of their favorite Vancouver-based producers to remix the track, Slynk and Neighbour. Slynk, originally from Australia, incorporates bass heavy glitch hop effects to create a ghetto funk monster. Home Breakin’ Records own Neighbour takes the track in a different direction, the end result being a spandex-smooth indie disco banger.

This release is primed for the dancefloor, ranging in sounds from chunked out disco funk to glitch hop grooves and indie disco. This is the first single for Fort Knox Five’s forthcoming new album, due out in 2015. After spending the last few years concentrating on remixing other artists and showcasing the amazing talent on their label Fort Knox Recordings, the group has rechanneled their energy back to creating original material collaborating with a wide array of new guest vocalists.
