    Don’t call it a retrospective! Ten years may be a major milestone for any record label these days but Washington, DC’s funky little indie, Fort Knox Recordings, appears to have hit it in stride with a bass bin full of momentum and no time for looking back. What started in 2003 as a home-base for the Fort Knox Five’s prodigious stream of dance floor crushers has evolved in to the genre-defying pride of the Nation’s Capitol with a roster that delights and dabbles in Funk, Bass, Latin, Reggae, Disco, Rock, House and Breaks, not to mention Chillout, Psychedelia and Indie.

    “10 Years of Fort Knox Recordings” gives a quick taste of all the artists that make up the roster. The first five years saw the rise of Fort Knox Five and it’s immediate spinoff acts: Speedy Consuela, Liftoff and Rob Myers’ (from Thievery Corporation’s “Lebanese Blonde”) Sitar-infused, International Velvet. Then came the era of the collaborators as the close friends and associates of the Fort Knox family brought their own acts into the fold: See-I, DC’s Reggae-Soul superstars; Empresarios, kings of Tropicaliente; Nappy Riddem, aficionados of the Dancehall Funk; and All Good Funk Alliance, masters of Electro Disco.

    Also making their first appearances on “10 Years of Fort Knox Recordings” are two like-minded artists whose friendship and remixing skills got them through the vaunted door to the Fort Knox vault. Australia’s Omegaman drops a Latin Big Beat sizzler called “El O‘man Boogaloo,” its tight horns and fat bass stick it right in the Fort Knox wheelhouse. And DC-native, QDup, brings the vintage Hip Hop & Breaks vibe to “Rock On It” a track that introduces local MC sensation Flex Mathews, who will also be appearing in full effect on the upcoming Fort Knox Five full length.

    20 songs that span the last ten years of Fort Knox Recordings, cover the globe of sounds & genres and open the door to the future of Funk. It’s what you’ll be dancing to this weekend at the club.

    Fort Knox Recordings is the renegade funk ‘n soul label from Washington, DC. Established in 2003, our mission is to exlpore the funkier side of global music. Fort Knox is set to ‘Tell it like it is’ by smashing the artificial barriers established by the 'System' that keeps all 'good' music down. Forget about tempos and genres - we want to take you back to the roots and unite all music from our funk, dub, and soul brothas & sistas - you dig? So stop being so serious, this is music, it's supposed to be fun.
