For the remix single, we gathered up another crew of no strangers to the Fort Knox Family. First up is Thomas Blondet, known to Fort Knox fans for his slamming remix of Sao Funky from Radio Free DC Remixed, and to the world as the driving force behind Rhythm & Culture recordings as well as a longtime resident DJ at the Eighteenth Street Lounge. For this remix, Blondet teamed up with Second Sky and Zeb to make Bhangra Paanch into a dubbed out world beat anthem. We also included their special dub version that flips the remix on its head. Next up is our man from Melbourne, Australia: Nick Thayer. Nick has consistently shown his production skills in a variety of genres, defying categorization. His remix of Bhangra Paanch proves just that, it is a monster electro 4/4 banger, with crazy whirling synth lines and one of the fattest basslines we have heard in ages! To round out the package we went with DCs own soul compatriots, All Good Funk Alliance. The AGFA boys have been busy running multiple labels, as well as producing many nu-funk classics. They added their signature funk drums to the mix, and lots of dubby glitch sounds. The end product is a version that will rock any dance floor.
With sounds ranging from trip hop to bhangra, electro to downtempo, and as always some serious funk & soul thrown in, the Bhangra Paanch Remix Single raises the bar once again, showcasing Fort Knox Five in a whole new light.
