The Funk n’ Beats series from Bombstrikes continues to grow in stature! This time the label have headed stateside to recruit the almighty Fort Knox Five for curation and DJ duties! With such luminaryfunksters on board, the outcome is every bit as special as you would expect. The Washington DC based crew deliver the album with their trademark quality and down right funkiness, selecting future classics and digging deep for some unbelievable forgotten gems, in a way that only some-one who has been in the game so long could do.
Recent highlights from Bombstrikes’ catalog are stacked alongside new music, hidden classics and exclusives. Just reading the track listing gets your feet itching to move, such is the pedigree on board. Featuring music from Fort Knox Five themselves with stone cold classics from the likes of Black Machine, Malente and Ugly Duckling, the quality keeps on oozing out via The Allergies, The Noisy Freaks, Lack of Afro and many more. Not to mention the exclusive digital release of seminal track ‘Flex the posse by Rhythm Mode: D’, an early collaboration between legends Mark Archer (of Altern 8 fame) alongside Dean Meredith (Bizarre Inc, Chicken Lips). There are so many outstanding tracks on the compilation that each would be a worthwhile addition on its own, but when added together, plus a funked out Dj mix from Fort Knox Five, then this is one mother of an album that cannot be missed.

The story of Fort Knox Five and Stickybuds goes back over a decade, funk is the glue that binds these brothers together, and they have rocked the same great festivals and shows across the US and Canada. All of that funky party rockin’ has culminated with Stickybuds’ first official remix of Fort Knox Five, his reinterpretation of Give It A Minute featuring bcap. No doubt you have heard Stickybuds teasing the crowd with some exclusive Fort Knox Five acapellas and drops over the years in his legendary sets, but this opens a whole new chapter with his bombastic remix.
Stickybuds cuts right to the chase, as his mix opens up immediately to bcap’s narrative verse and the relentless percussive synths that propel it over the hard hitting beats. Synth pop sensibilities of groups like Oliver and Chromeo can be heard dripping over Stickybuds unique glitch-hop style production. With epic big builds and organic drum fills, the remix rides the line between electro and classic funk.
From the start the remix gets you hooked on the dancefloor, delivering bcap’s catchy chorus over booty shaking beats. And then the big break down devastates with its cut-up and asymmetrical glitched-out vocals layered on top of the electro-synths. Featuring a healthy dose of Rob Myers’ guitar/synth lines and heavily utilizing the original vocals, the remix maintains the vibe of FK5’s original track. Stickybuds delivers the goods and flips the Future Funk, Go-Go meets Glitch-Hop of the original into an Electro meets Glitch-Hop dancefloor powerhouse.
Also included is the instrumental version, which slays on its own and highlights Stickybuds impeccable studio production. This killer remix of Give It A Minute is meant to be played loud and danced furiously to, and is the best way we could imagine finishing out the year, with an absolute banger.
