FKX086 – Fort Knox Recordings
“Swinging On A Rhyme” is a quintessential Fort Knox Five track that incorporates live instrumentation, creating a funk and swing anthem with guitar riffs and a full horn section. The track features vocal snippets by Flex Mathews, a versatile backpack wearing hip-hop MC from Washington, DC who has earned a great reputation as an MC with fresh rhymes and positive messages. Swinging On A Rhyme is a fun and upbeat funky party tune that has been a big hit, taking it back to Fort Knox Five’s classic track The Brazilian Hipster.
For this new release, Fort Knox Five has assembled the original version together with two banging remixes and the instrumentals of all three tracks. When Fort Knox Five made a funky swing track on their new
album, it was a no-brainer to call on Bart & Baker to do a remix. The Paris duo are well known for their ‘house music with a smile and a style.” The Bart & Baker remix is a DJs dream, perfect for any set or mix with smooth electro swing and a funky house vibe, creating a seriously infectious groove. The next remix is by San Francisco’s Warp9, who has dropped the bass and funked up the track in a heavy way. Distorted bass lines, crazy synths and a warped flow create a funky glitch-hop reworking sure to please bass music lovers everywhere.
The original version of Swinging On A Rhyme featuring Flex Mathews is an instant classic, and combined with remixes by Bart&Baker and Warp9, a top-notch package emerges. With sounds ranging from Electro-swing and funky house to glitch-hop, these tracks are made to get people dancing, head nodding and smiling all night long. As usual Fort Knox Five is looking out for the DJs, and instrumental versions of all three tracks are available.
