Fort Knox Five – Triple J Mixup – 24.1.2009

 

 

Fort Knox Five (FK5) was formed back in 2003 by four like-minded musicians, Steve Raskin, Jon Horvath (RIP), Rob Myers and Sid Barcelona. Each musician in the group have also worked with other acts in the music industry including Thunderball, Thievery Corporation and See-I to name a few. Fort Knox Five also formed their own label Fort Knox Recordings to release their unique style of funky music. Fort Knox Recordings still runs today with various artists contributing their music over the years and giving the label its mass following. With the recent sad passing of Jon Horvath they still continue to play shows as a LIVE instrumental act as well as rocking the turntables to the masses.

A Skillz – LIVE @ A38 Boat Budapest – 12.5.2007

 

 

Adam Mills aka A.Skillz is a legendary musical artist hailing from the United Kingdom. Capable of rocking every party that he DJ’s at, A.Skillz has the unique ability to mix every kind of genre of music LIVE and get the dance floor moving. This Funk loving individual has seen him appear at big and small stages on every 4 corners of the globe. This bootleg recording i managed to find while searching the interwebs back in 2007, pretty much not available any where so it’s pretty damn rare. Enjoy 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

Peter Paul – LIVE @ Banzai Club April 2007

 

 

An absolute legend of the Spanish Breaks scene is Peter Paul from Seville, Spain. His career began in the early 2000’s and he has had a long line of releases since. He started the N-Mity Sound label producing varying releases and 3 albums along the way. Peter Paul has also been considered that he created the genre Techno Breaks or Tech Breaks as we know it. This LIVE mix at the Banzai Club is from the very heyday of Tech Breaks around 2007 and is a prime example of his sound at that time.

 

 

 

 

 

Friendly – Triple J Mixup – 7.4.2007

 

 

Andrew Kornweibel aka Friendly is an Australian born artist who moved to London in late 2001. Launching himself onto the ripe UK Breaks scene his first release on Boombox Records (Greedy Filthy Dirty/F-ing In Public) gained him support and respect from many breaks heavy weights at that time. He then moved onto Fat! Records working closely with Paul Arnold and had various hit releases including Glottal Stomp/Foot Rocker. I’m not too sure what Andrew is up to today and as a bit of trivia Andrew’s dad was a business partner with my dad in an architectural firm.
