  • Washington, DC native Joe Quarterman had his first hit in 1973, an instant funk classic that was part of the capital city's red hot 70s funk scene. So Much Trouble On My Mind is a party rocking anthem still being sampled and played over 40 years later. Fort Knox Five recently got Quarterman back in the studio to record a new song, the stripped down funk banger Don't Go.

    Over the past 13 years Fort Knox Five have been producing original funk music in Washington, DC, giving credit to DC legends like Joe Quarterman and Chuck Brown. Through the DC Funk Parade festival the two artists were linked up, a fusion years in the making. Having worked with legends like Afrika Bambaataa and others, Fort Knox Five are deeply honored to be working with Sir Joe Quarterman.

    The result of this collaboration is a modern funk anthem that will put the glide in your stride, just as long as you Don't Go! Quarterman drops in with a classic funk delivery, complete with James Brown vocal stylings. He really belts it out, saying This funk will set you free, this funk is as good as can be. Sir Joe's upbeat flow is perfect for the dance floor sensibilities of Fort Knox Five, who incorporated their own live elements into the mix. Pulling out all the stops, FK5's own Steve Raskin is on live bass, Rob Myer drops some seriously funky wah-wah guitars and incorporates a full horn section, complete with DC's own Frank Mitchell, Jr. on saxophone.

    Spanning time and generations of music, this tune captures the vibe of DC's classic funk sound and merges it with the future funk sensibilities of Fort Knox Five. Inspired by the DC Funk Parade, this song is being released to commemorate the third annual parade this year. A slice of DC through and through, combining styles and influences across the decades, Don't Go is sure to get your hands clapping and your booty shaking!lines provide the perfect groove for Ashleys retro-funky vibe.
