Fort Knox Five releases a special edit for AM and Shawn Lee's track "Somebody Like You," laying down the classic Fort Knox style with a wobbler breakbeat bassline for all bass music and future funk fans alike. Having help craft the sound of the DC breaks and funk, FK5 delivers something perfect to start up a night of breakbeat with. A.M. and Shawn Lee's album just dropped this week, more information below along with tour dates.
Celestial Electric Released Today!
Celestial Electric finds L.A.-based indie-pop auteur AM and London-based groovemaster/experimentalist Shawn Lee pooling their talents to create a unique brand of "electro-soul" that achieves seamless pop perfection, while mining a startlingly broad array of stylistic influences. It's a resulting blend of heartfelt, warmly melodic songcraft and vivid, inventive soundscapes underlying the artists' abiding love for all manner of vintage genres, encompassing pop, soul, funk, jazz, Brazilian tropicalia, Turkish psychedelia, and soundtracks and library music from the '60s, '70s and '80s. The album marks a creative milestone for both artists, offering timeless, deeply compelling music that showcases the duo's remarkable creative chemistry. Celestial Electric is available for download and physical copy purchase through our website.
