One of the killer party anthems on Fort Knox Five’s new album Pressurize The Cabin is Keep It Poppin featuring Mustafa Akbar of Nappy Riddem. After getting everybody to Funk For Peace on Radio Free DC, Mustafa is back again with more positive feel good party lyrics to keep the vibes going. On this release, the next single from the new album, Fort Knox Five have enlisted the help of some close friends and old school legends to truly keep it popping!
Their friendship forged in the old school rave days, Fort Knox Five and DJ Dan have been close for decades. The DJ Dan and Mike Balance Remix is an indie nu-disco meets G-House banger, full of West Coast flavor. Bubbling beats and pitched down vocals combined with funky synths creates a new school take on an old school sound.
Wes Smith, another alumni of the old school scene, has been topping the breakbeat charts with releases on his label Juice Recordings. His reworking of Keep It Poppin transforms the original into a high energy breakbeat workout. Rounding out the release is Worthy’s deep future house remix, full of chunked out beats and blips, sure to whip the dancefloor into a frenzy. As part of San Francisco’s Dirtybird crew, Worthy brings a fresh new sound which is going off worldwide.
This collection of remixes is engineered to get people on their feet and dancing! With sounds ranging from from nu-disco to deep future house and breakbeat, DJs and old school ravers alike will find these tunes booty shaking. Instrumentals are also available of all three remixes, and you can expect to hear some of these tunes getting the party started, so let’s Keep It Poppin.

See-I released their 2014 album “Knowledge Shine Bright” to great reviews in the press and an amazing radio campaign, followed up with national tour dates including the 30th annual Reggae On The River Festival in Humboldt County, CA. The tracks from this album have been sent out to some of the best remixers around the world and the results are just stunning.
The Knowledge Shine Bright remixes will be released in a series of EPs and the first one is engineered to blow up dance floors all over the place. See-I’s track The Boogieman features rapper Mr. Lif, and the Basement Freaks have stripped it down and reworked the tune from the bottom up. The result is an electro infused bass funk banger, a slice of futuristic funky hip-hop, which is a DJs dream. Fort Knox Recordings label
mate Qdup remixed King of the Road adding some future go-go swing to create a funky glitch-hop anthem. These are the first See-I remixes by both of these accomplished artists, and instrumentals of both remixes are also available.
The first installment of the Knowledge Shine Bright Remixes sets the bar very high, with Basement Freaks and Qdup reinterpreting the funky reggae and hip-hop of See-I into dance floor monsters. With a range of sounds from electro, glitch-hop, funk, bass and breaks these remixes deliver the goods and create an irresistible party vibe.
