Artist Info

Fort Knox Five

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Fort Knox Five is a DJ collective out of Washington DC. Their style ranges from eclectic downbeat & hip hop, to upbeat funk and breaks. They have DJed in Russia, Germany, Greece, Spain, Hungary, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, and Canada.

FK5 fuse live instrumentation with modern electronics to create a funk-driven sound. They've remixed Tito Puente, Louis Armstrong, Tower of Power, A Skillz and Krafty Kuts, Dynamo Productions, and Mo'Horizons. They produced four tracks on Afrika Bambaataa's album "Dark Matter" on Tommy Boy Records.

In 2005 they were selected into the prestigious Urb Magazine Next 100, and featured on the Hotel Costes Sept Compilation. In 2005 FK5 also teamed up with the English Funkateers, Skeewiff at Jalapeno Records. Together they compiled a breakbeat funk compilation called The Raid. It features exclusive tracks and remixes by Skeewiff, the Fort Knox Five, and Kraak en Smaak. These tunes all come from the back catalogs of Fort Knox and Jalapeno.

Also in 2005 was when they were selected to be Gwen Stefanis tour and show DJ on the Harajuku Lovers 2005 tour.

In 2006, the Fort Knox Five released the New Gold Standard Vol 1, which was the first cd release for Fort Knox. It is a compilation of songs coming from the vaults of Fort Knox.
