If you're a regular reader of Magnetic then you probably know we've got a bit of a sonic crush going on with the Fort Knox Five camp outta Washington DC. We have yet to be disappointed by one of their Funk The World mixes. Always good for a romp though an exotic mix of sounds. If you're not familiar with Fort Knox Five you can check out our feature on them here.
This marks the 2nd time the trio Qdup Foundation (ason Brown aka Jayclue, Allen McDaniel aka Amac and Rex Holloway aka The Disco Bastard) has taken the helm for the series and number 11 more than lives up to their funky breaks persona.
