“Pressurize The Cabin Remixed Exclusives #2”
by Fort Knox Five
FKX099 – Fort Knox Recordings
Following the release of Fort Knox Five’s second full length album, “Pressurize the Cabin”, each track has been remixed and released as a single. In this process a few rare gems emerged, killer tunes which both Fort Knox Five and Qdup have been playing in their sets all year. After holding on to these exclusive remixes, FK5 is releasing these tunes in a two part lead-up to the 100th release on Fort Knox Recordings, the “Pressurize The Cabin Remixed” album coming out this October.
One of the biggest tunes from the album so far has been Whatcha Gonna Do featuring Mustafa Akbar, and there are already some super funky remixes that have come out. Add to this list a funky glitch-hop monster remix by Sammy Senior, who takes the retro spirit of the original and adds bass wobbles, chopped-up vocal stabs and some serious boom.
After many years of remixing the artists of Fort Knox Recordings, AfroQben finally gets to rework Fort Knox Five, delivering a super funky take on Ready Go featuring Raashan Ahmad. The result is a fat slice of west coast g-funk with vocoded vocals and 70’s funk guitar licks. Turn the volume up loud and get ready for the bass to drop!
These exclusive tunes are a preview of the label’s 100th release, “Pressurize The Cabin Remixed.” Instrumentals are available for both of these exclusive tracks. With two heavyweight remixes spanning funk and glitch-hop, this release will keep the party going until the morning.

Following the release of Fort Knox Five’s second full length album, “Pressurize the Cabin”, each track has been remixed and released as a single. In this process a few rare gems emerged, killer tunes which both Fort Knox Five and Qdup have been playing in their sets all year. After holding on to these exclusive remixes, FK5 is releasing these tunes in a two part lead up to the 100th release on Fort Knox Recordings, the “Pressurize The Cabin Remixed” album coming out this October.
Longtime friend and collaborator Ursula 1000 was enlisted to remix Ready Go featuring Raashan Ahmad and has put together an instant classic. Those familiar with Ursula 1000 will recognize his signature indie/nu-disco sound, delivering a remix peppered with 80s inspired electro toms and funky grooves.
After dropping a bangin’ remix of See-I last year, rising talent from Victoria, BC, Palletz has reworked 24 Hours To Set It Off featuring Sleepy Wonder into a stomping breaks anthem. Crisp beats and 808 bass booms, combined with climactic trap snare rolls and reggae vocals have this track destined to rock the dancehall.
This exclusive release is sure to get fans ready for the 100th release on the label, the forthcoming “Pressurize The Cabin Remixed” album. Instrumentals are available for all of these exclusive mixes. With sounds ranging from nu-disco to breaks, these two tracks will get the dancefloor jumping, so get ready to give up the funk!

“Reach ft. Flex Mathews”
by Fort Knox Five
w/ Remixes by Bobby C Sound TV & Knight Riderz
FKX096 – Fort Knox Recordings
1. Reach ft. Flex Mathews (Bobby C Sound TV Remix)
2. Reach ft. Flex Mathews (Knight Riderz DnB Remix)
3. Reach ft. Flex Mathews (Knight Riderz Trap Remix)
4. Reach ft. Flex Mathews (Original Mix)
5. Reach (Bobby C Sound TV Remix Instrumental)
6. Reach (Knight Riderz DnB Remix Instrumental)
7. Reach (Knight Riderz Trap Remix Dub)
8. Reach (Instrumental Mix)
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.
