So earlier this year the lads from FORT KNOX FIVE, hit a milestone. They celebrated their 10th anniversary with a massive compilation of some of their favourite tunes. Looks like they wanted to keep the party going so DC collective gathered 15 remixes of original Fort Knox Five tracks in once complete package. The collection, arranged in ascending BPM, is essentially a who’s-who of veteran dance floor producers and some of the hottest up-and-comers. Additionally there are two tracks previously unreleased jems coming to light on Fort Knox Recordings for the first time: KRAFTY KUTS re-rub of “Party Pushers (Smalltown Romeo Remix)” and SKEEWIFF’s remix of the song that launched FK5’s career, “The Brazilian Hipster.”
For your listening convenience, the entire 15 track set is below. First though are the purchase links and a few Manalogue Favourites, starting with a free download.
On August 10, A.SKILLZ and his outlandish mixing capabilities will move and mesmerize bodies in SHAMBHALA‘ Fractal Forest. This mix might give you a sense of what to expect, although it might not. It’s going to be better.
Oh, and if you missed the latest A.Skillz and KRAFTY KUTS collaboration, it’s well worth checking out. They remixed one of their classics, “Tricka Technology” for a modern bass heavy workout, for free download too.
Here’s an exciting competition from KRAFTY KUTS and Instant Vibe! They’re holding a remix competition for his latest release. The track, a collaboration with Time Deluxe, was quietly released in late June. To be expected, it’s a monster breaks number full of booming 808s but with your artistic license it doesn’t have to be. Below you’ll find a stream of the full track as well as the vocal snippet to be used. Additionally, there’s a link to the stems to build your remix with.

KRAFTY KUTS‘ latest single is a bit of a stomper. That’s an obvious understatement. As expected Mr. Krafty charges straight for the dancefloor with a techy break and huge kick drums under Stellar MC’s eery vocals. HASHTAG drops the tempo with a half-time bass monster. The single comes with instrumental versions of each track too.
We have brand new bootleg from KRAFTY KUTS. If you haven’t heard, Mr. Kuts, aka Martin Reeves, broke his legs on the slopes at the Snowbombing Festival two weeks ago. Apparently not much can keep this man down – he’s also making his way across Canada for his Canadian tour where the tune has been smashing dance floors. Sadly, he’s not making a stop in Winnipeg this time around.
KRAFTY KUTS and FEATURECAST team up to drop some island vibes. The original (featured in the video below) contrasts the 60s ska sample with nu school electro breaks. Krafty Kuts has his own remix on the EP, which twists the track into more of a natural state. BOBBY C SOUND TV slows the tempo slightly warping his signature bassline into the mix. The standout though comes from ED SOLO, who ramps up the bpms into a jungle frenzy.
