The Funk is strong with Fort Knox Five, there's no denying that. Their Funk The World mix series has been a staple here at Magentic Mag for some time and is a must listen for anyone who is drawn to the world of feel-good Funk.
As true purveyors of keeping the notion of Funk music alive, the crew coming out of Washington DC clearly stand out in the realm of nostalgic, yet forward thinking beats and grooves. They have a way with making the old-school feel new again with dance music motifs mixed in with organic elements of horns and guitar riffs. Their latest installment of the Funk The World mix series follows suite with everything they're all about. It's filled with covers and remixes including a brilliant one of 'Sexual Healing' and a minimalistic yet equally grooving 'Thinkin Bout Your Body' rendition that really hits you in that Funk muscle. Just try and resist the head-bob when listening to this one, just try. View the tracklist below to get an idea of where these guys draw inspiration from and enjoy vol. 32.
