Fort Knox Five - Reminted
This non-stop groove is the magic of the DC label’s remixes of classic funk and soul tunes with their own live instrumentation and in-house DJ’s, creating a seamless jam. Impressive are not only the mixes, but the choice of tunes to mess with. Music by Tito Puente and Joe Bataan, as well as more current work by Torpedo Boyz and Ursula 1000 provide the starting point for the jams, which show both respect for the originals and the right insight into them to know how to build and in many ways deepen them. This is especially vivid in their treatment of Puente’s "Ran Kan Kan" and Kraak & Smaak’s "One of These Days." Sid Barcelona and company have created a continuous, hard funk party-tape that is hard to top. If spring ever really gets here, this is the soundtrack.
