The final single in the Pressure The Cabin series is “Reach” featuring Flex Mathews on vocals, and killer remixes by Bobby C Sound TV and Knight Riderz. Reach is an upbeat, positive party anthem, and a natural follow-up to Fort Knox Five’s hit tune “Insight”, with Flex Mathews’ uplifting lyrics creating a ‘party with a purpose’ on top of some seriously funky poppin’ beats.

Well known for his electro-funk bangers and remixes, Bobby C Sound TV put his signature spin on Reach and the result is irresistible. He toughened up the mix with solid floor rocking beats, juicy basslines and glitched out synths stabs. Bobby C prominently uses the full vocals and Rob Myers’ funky guitars to great effect, this one’s sure to get the crowd reaching for the sky.

Knight Riderz explores two sides of their bass driven sound with both a drum’n’bass and trap remix. With spooky atmospherics and pitched down vocals, the Knight Riderz drum’n’bass mix starts dark and moody, and then drops into a serious roller for the headz. Ruthless bass lines drive the track over relentless beats creating a heavy jungle anthem. Knight Riderz flips the script completely with their trap remix, this time slowing down the beats and pitching up the vocals to helium status. Just like Flex Mathews says, this mix “Won’t Stop, Won’t Stop” until the drop hits, with super subs and hi-fidelity synth work this mix needs to be played loud.

“Mission To The Sitars” is the only instrumental track on the Pressurize The Cabin album and features Fort Knox Five founding member Rob Myers on sitar. Well known as the signature sitar of globe trotting sensation Thievery Corporation, Rob leads the charge on a magic carpet ride into outer space. Three stellar remixes, by Smalltown DJs, Sabo and Thunderball flip the original into unique dancefloor bombs that will launch any party into the stratosphere.

Longtime friends, and well known to fans of Fool’s Gold Records, Calgary’s own Smalltown DJs have reworked Mission To The Sitars into a bass heavy house workout. Adding some original female vocals that narrate the mission, inspiring the listener with “love and light and happiness.” Meant to be played loud on a booming system, this remix is hard hitting and groovy enough to get even the most jaded music lover moving on the dancefloor.

Los Angeles based Sabo brings to bear his Sol Selectas late morning house vibe on his remix. Sabo takes the mission into the desert, ratcheting down the tempo into a deep, tribal house groove. He creates a heavy hypnotic vibe incorporating atmospheric sitars, warped basslines and a relentless tablas workout. Sabo has created an ethereal voyage which is destined to take the listener into orbit and leave you there.

Fort Knox Five’s alter ego Thunderball takes Mission To The Sitars and launches it into the far reaches of space with their relentless drum’n’bass remix. Using the full sitar melody of the original, Thunderball has revved up the tempo, adding propulsive drums, choppy synths and rolling bass. Like a lunar rover on the moon, this remix drives over the peaks and valleys, all the way to the dark side and back.
