It was right before the end of the year the last time we hosted Fort Knox Five over at Magnetic Mag. Fast forward six months and we've got the new Funk The World mix here for the start of summer. Mixed by Steve Raskin, the genre-spanning hour-long mix features an eclectic set of tracks that make the right introduction for summer.
Not being afraid to move around and experiment, don't expect just another one tempo mix. Fort Knox Five has put together a summer scorcher of a mix. Loads of exclusives and personal remixes on this funky 60-minute mix of funk, breaks, house & hip-hop edits. Listen to the full mix below.
Fort Knox Five had this to say about the mix:
MIX PREMIERE: FORT KNOX FIVE - FUNK THE WORLD 71
Arists Who Sound Like: Shay Lia
Spotlight: ZEHV - ŌKAMI EP
"The first day of Summer is officially here, and this Funk The World is the perfect summer soundtrack to road trips, beach getaways and festival adventures. It starts with a new DC's Finest exclusive along with some of the tunes you'll hear at summer festivals and dancefloors. In addition to a bunch of tunes by our favorite producers & homies, we are stoked to have "Keep The Funk Real" make its Funk The World debut, the Slynk + FK5 collab we released just over 6 months ago. Catch Fort Knox Five droppin' the funk this Summer!"
