    The new single from Fort Knox Five is “24 Hours To Set It Off” featuring Sleepy Wonder with bombastic dancefloor remixes by Deekline and Dirty Dubsters.

    While top UK producer Deekline was visiting the studio in DC, Fort Knox Five enlisted him to transform the dancehall ska of “24 Hours To Set It Off” into a breakbeat anthem. As usual Deekline delivers the goods, twisting the original with a modern take on old school breaks. With its crisp breakbeats, Jungle influenced bass drops, old school rave piano stabs and epic builds, this track is a surefire ragga classic. On top of it all are Sleepy Wonder’s rapidfire vocals, when paired with Deekline’s beats somehow become more rugged and rough.

    Fort Knox Five is excited to welcome Dublin’s own Dirty Dubsters to the fold with their first remix on Fort Knox Recordings. The duo from Ireland were a natural fit, with a reputation for reggae flavored remixes done with their signature big drum beats and fat driving bass grooves. The Dubsters did just that, flipping the original into a lively two-step ragga breaks remix full of ska guitars and knee-wobbling bass lines. Whether nodding your head or full on skanking to the rhythm its impossible to stay still while listening to this one!

    Sleepy Wonder is a longtime collaborator with Fort Knox Five, so when the group sent him a fresh beat to write to, he fired back with a real time stream of consciousness dancehall rap about a day in his life. An ode to working with Fort Knox Recordings, the track is an uplifting and positive party vibe about working hard and having fun making music. Swinging big beats are accentuated with live guitars and horns, which come together perfectly to frame Sleepy’s lyrical tale. Fort Knox Five’s distinctive electronic tweaks, blips and bleeps pepper the track into a bubbly dancehall ska tune.

Available for Purchase here:

“Swinging On A Rhyme” is a quintessential Fort Knox Five track that incorporates live instrumentation, creating a funk and swing anthem with guitar riffs and a full horn section. The track features vocal snippets by Flex Mathews, a versatile backpack wearing hip-hop MC from Washington, DC who has earned a great reputation as an MC with fresh rhymes and positive messages. Swinging On A Rhyme is a fun and upbeat funky party tune that has been a big hit, taking it back to Fort Knox Five’s classic track The Brazilian Hipster.

For this new release, Fort Knox Five has assembled the original version together with two banging remixes and the instrumentals of all three tracks. When Fort Knox Five made a funky swing track on their new album, it was a no-brainer to call on Bart & Baker to do a remix. The Paris duo are well known for their ‘house music with a smile and a style.” The Bart & Baker remix is a DJs dream, perfect for any set or mix with smooth electro swing and a funky house vibe, creating a seriously infectious groove. The next remix is by San Francisco’s Warp9, who has dropped the bass and funked up the track in a heavy way. Distorted bass lines, crazy synths and a warped flow create a funky glitch-hop reworking sure to please bass music lovers everywhere.

The original version of Swinging On A Rhyme featuring Flex Mathews is an instant classic, and combined with remixes by Bart&Baker and Warp9, a top-notch package emerges. With sounds ranging from Electro-swing and funky house to glitch-hop, these tracks are made to get people dancing, head nodding and smiling all night long. As usual Fort Knox Five is looking out for the DJs, and instrumental versions of all three tracks are available.
