THE RADIO FREE DC ALBUM RELEASE TOUR


Featuring…



JON H from FORT KNOX FIVE, US – Fort Knox Recordings / MySpace.com - Fort Knox Five - WASHINGTON, District of, Washington DC - Funk / Breakbeat / Electronica - www.myspace.com/fortknoxfive



The Fort Knox Five have had a huge impact on the international Funk and Breaks scene over the past 5 years. With the release of dozens of critically acclaimed singles, remixes and albums on their own independent label Fort Knox Recordings among others, the FK5 have been thrust into the spotlight and caught the attention of music lovers around the world.

FK5 flawlessly fuse live instrumentation with modern electronics to create their signature funk-driven sound. Jon H’s (FK5’s DJ) unique style ranges from eclectic downbeat & hip hop, to upbeat funk and breaks and his keen sense of party rocking, has gained him and the FK5 crew countless fans around the globe. They have rocked dancefloors in Russia, Germany, Greece, Spain, Hungary, Holland, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, and here in Canada to name a few.

A major turning point in 2005 was when Jon was selected to be Gwen Stefani’s tour and show DJ on the Harajuku Lovers 2005 tour. Being a part of this, he had the opportunity to open sellout shows with Gwen Stefani and the Black Eyed Peas, allowing him to play massive arenas such as the Hollywood Bowl, Madison Square Gardens, and everywhere else in between.

Join us as we welcome back Jon H. to BIG SEXY FUNK for the FK5 RADIO FREE DC ALBUM RELEASE TOUR!




Album available on October 21st on CD / Vinyl / Digital

The album opens with a straight up old school party jam, ‘Insight,’ featuring Asheru, from the underground hip-hop group the Unspoken Heard. Asheru’s intelligent rhymes set the tone for the record “… music with a meaning, party with a purpose, being smart with the art makes the average folk nervous…” Long time co-conspirator, Mustafa Akbar, then takes center stage on the album’s unifying anthem, ‘Funk 4 Peace.’ Showcasing their indie rock roots with a heavy dose of Funk and Soul, the Fort Knox Five enlist Ian Svenonius (from DC Hardcore’s Nation of Ulysses and The Make Up) to proclaim step-by-step instructions on ‘How to Start a Band’. Venturing deep into the heart of DC’s Jamaican Underground, the Fort Knox Five collaborate with Rootz and Zeebo from See-I, as well as the unrivaled, mic-specialist, Sleepy Wonder to deliver three of the album’s ragga fueled future classics, ‘Killa Sound Boy,’ ‘The Wonder Strikes Again’ and ‘Not Gonna Take It’.



Opening up the night proper is…

VINYL RITCHIE with LADY P & EMOTIONZ on the mic!

TICKETS:
$15 advance
More at the door

Available NOW from Twisted, Promotions, Vancouver or by calling 1-866-824-8212.

Really looking forward to this show! Twisted was the first to bring Fort Knox Five to Vancouver and we're excited to have Jon back at a night fitting for his style of beats - Big Sexy Funk Saturday's.

This guy destroys Shambhala every year so come and see for yourself!

Yeah I'm looking forward to this as well.

I know he's been to Vancouver recently, but the past 3 times he's come through it's been @ Republic on a Wednesday. He's not really been able to play what he wants there as that night as a specific sound they are looking for.

Big Sexy Funk is all about the Funk and with Scott opening things proper, it's gonna be a wicked night!

Really? If so that was an honest mistake on my part as I don't even remember that!

When was that? We had brought him and Thunderball to Grand Finale at the Plaza of Nations.

My bad Wood!
