Fort Knox Five
FORT KNOX FIVE has spent the past decade as a leading force in the international funk and breaks scene. Having released an arsenal of floor-rocking original music and remixes, it’s clear that FORT KNOX FIVE has the midas touch for producing heavy-hitting records.

FORT KNOX FIVE is masterminded by Steve Raskin, Rob Myers, Jon Horvath, and Sid Barcelona. They established Fort Knox Recordings in 2003 to release party-rocking music that crosses tempos and defies genres. Their world-renowned “Fort Knox Sound” has overtaken dance floors with its infectious interweaving of live instrumentation and funky electronic breakbeats.

FK5’s talent for organic hooks has made them highly sought after producers and remixers, and landed them in URB Magazine’s prestigious “Next 100.” They have dozens of remixes to their credit, including monster remixes for the legendary Tito Puente, Louis Armstrong, and Bob Marley. Further cementing the reputation of FORT KNOX FIVE, Afrika Bambaataa—the godfather of hip-hop—has recruited them numerous times to produce tracks. Their video for the song Shift featuring Afrika Bambaataa & Mustafa Akbar was declared “groundbreaking” by Spinner Magazine. Their songs have consistently broken the iTunes and Beatport Top 10 Charts in multiple genres, reaching Number One positions in Breaks, Reggae, and Chillout on Beatport.
