Few have been flying the friendly skies as much as Fort Knox Five this past year. Sid Barcelona, Steve Raskin, Rob Myers, and Jon Horvath have been circling the globe, throwing down thundering sets, and adding more exotic sounds to their already worldly catalog.
On April 28th, the foursome releases its latest album on its own Fort Knox Recordings, which has been repping DC funk hard for more than a decade. Pressurize the Cabin taps a bevy of the band's best friends in the biz, including tons of vocalists and rappers from across the sonic spectrum.
Today's free download of the title track features San Diego hip-hop heavyweights Vokab Kompany, who add tons of bounce to the funky breaks of the album's opening cut. Horns aplenty fuel this driving cut, which pairs FK5's signature hip-hop feel with vintage brass blasts. This is the party anthem DJ's have been waiting for.
It's a busy weekend for Fort Knox Five, who hit Cervantes in Denver for the SONIC BLOOM Unified Field pre-party on April 24, as well as Boogaloo Mountain Jam in Silverado, CA, where we picked them as the #1 act to see at the SoCal festival.
