Fort Knox Five Vs Ursula 1000 – March 2006

 

 

Back in the early 2000’s Fort Knox Five and Ursula 1000 joined forces to become the act FK 1000 an outfit that created many a bootleg party jam which can be heard in this old mix i had laying around on my hard drive. Fortunately i found a tracklist via the good old interwebs and as you can see each track is a FK 1000 tune. I forgot to put a date when i downloaded it but by all accounts this mix is from March 2006, hope you dig the funk. 🙂

Fort Knox Five – Bombstrikes Presents Funk N Beats Volume 4

 

 

Bombstrikes are set to release the next Funk N’Beats on Friday March 9th. This time Fort Knox Five have been called to drop a brand new mix along with 23 DJ friendly tracks. With music from Ugly Duckling, Flow Dynamics, Kormac, The Allergies, Lack of Afro, The Noisy Freaks, Slynk & Skiitour, Basement Freaks, Malente, Fort Knox Five themselves & many more….

The Funk n’ Beats series from Bombstrikes continues to grow in stature! This time the label have headed stateside to recruit the almighty Fort Knox Five for curation and DJ duties! With such luminaryfunksters on board, the outcome is every bit as special as you would expect. The Washington DC based crew deliver the album with their trademark quality and down right funkiness, selecting future classics and digging deep for some unbelievable forgotten gems, in a way that only some-one who has been in the game so long could do.

Recent highlights from Bombstrikes’ catalog are stacked alongside new music, hidden classics and exclusives. Just reading the track listing gets your feet itching to move, such is the pedigree on board. Featuring music from Fort Knox Five themselves with stone cold classics from the likes of Black Machine, Malente and Ugly Duckling, the quality keeps on oozing out via The Allergies, The Noisy Freaks, Lack of Afro and many more. Not to mention the exclusive digital release of seminal track ‘Flex the posse by Rhythm Mode: D’, an early collaboration between legends Mark Archer (of Altern 8 fame) alongside Dean Meredith (Bizarre Inc, Chicken Lips). There are so many outstanding tracks on the compilation that each would be a worthwhile addition on its own, but when added together, plus a funked out Dj mix from Fort Knox Five, then this is one mother of an album that cannot be missed.
