Every holiday season brings back the annual challenge of finding good quality and funky holiday songs to play. Its always been hard to share the season’s greetings and get those booties on the dancefloor at the same time. And that is exactly why Fort Knox Five and K+Lab have decided to remint their smash hit “Jinglin’ Janglin’”, and are releasing a special holiday version Jingling Bells Mix.

FK5 and K+Lab had such a great time working together on the first DC to BC collaboration, and the resulting Jinglin’ Janglin’ tune has been a big hit. All of that heavy bass and funky breaks from the original are still there, with a healthy serving of sleigh bells, xylophone and festive percussion added throughout. The result is a funky Noel anthem with Baby Bam’s call to Rewind it back, just listen to the track even more important during the hectic year end holidays.

So warm up the wassail and get the White Elephant party started, its time to take a funky sleigh ride with Fort Knox Five and K+Lab on their Jingling Bells Mix. The instrumental version gives the track even more versatility as the vocals drop out and the holiday cheer gets cranked up a notch. Everybody at Fort Knox Recordings would like to wish you and your loved ones a warm, safe holiday season this year!

Does your life need more cowbell and funky bass?

Over the past decade there has been a strong connection between Washington DC and British Columbia, Canada. Both places have produced and nurtured some incredibly talented funkateers, many of whom have remixed Fort Knox Five over the years. It has been a dream of ours to collaborate with these artists on original tracks, pushing forward the future sound of funk to start a new era that we have dubbed “DC to BC.” This release is the first of these collaborations, and the end result is nothing short of a boogie monster!

Jinglin’ Janglin’ was written with the funk and glitch hop maestro K+lab, a New Zealander who now calls Vancouver, BC home. His funky keys, electro-basses and catchy clavinets ooze all over this track. With the addition of Rob Myers’ Chic-inspired guitars and a super-stabby horn line, this track positively bounces along – a perfect hybrid of the K+Lab and FK5 styles! On top of all that, the tune features vocals from Hip-Hop royalty: Baby Bam of the Jungle Brothers, who has worked alongside De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest going back to the 1980s. His vocals bubble all over the track, telling you to just “funk wit it” and jinglin and janglin the vibes straight to your feet! This tune is a modern funk-meets-glitch hop banger that has been torching dance floors and festivals all summer.

We are super stoked to launch the DC to BC series with this wicked Captain K+lab collaboration. Already proven to do heavy duty on the dance floor, this release includes an instrumental mix for the DJs. Keep the funk janglin’ with this booty-shaker and stay tuned for the next installment of the DC to BC collabs.
