In honor of this weekends show with Afrika Bambaataa at U-Street Music Hall here in Washington DC on May 27th, the Fort Knox Five dropped this future go-go banger on us. This tune is HUGE, and we are super stoked that they opened this up to the world. It doesn’t get better than this in my book, so check below and you shall be rocking the club or your car stereo with this awesome tune.
We are proud to announce the return of Afrika Bambaataa to U Street Music Hall on Sunday May 27th for the Memorial Day Weekend event Funk 4 Peace 2012. What better way to kick off summer than with the Godfather of Electro-Funk who has helped spread Hip-Hop culture worldwide. Afrika Bambaataa will deliver a dj set full of party classics, anthems, old school electro and funk.
Performing live will be DC's own All Good Funk Alliance, who are celebrating the release of their fourth studio album, "Jacks of All Trades", which came out May 1st on Fort Knox Recordings. There will be an All Good Funk Alliance "CD Listening Party" from 9-10pm with a Smirnoff and Red Bull Open Bar. All attendees will get a free copy of the Jacks of All Trades CD.
Rounding out the line-up will be label founders Fort Knox Five with a four turntable DJ set and an opening live performance by rising reggae/funk group Nappy Riddem.
The event will run from 9pm to 3am, 18 and up and only $10 admission.
