Label bosses Fort Knox Five reminted Real Steel, turning it into a bass heavy dancefloor monster that works well with both dancehall and funk. Greek funk producer Basement Freaks transformed Boogieman featuring Mr Lif into an electro infused, bassy futuristic hip-hop banger. Keeping that homegrown DC sound alive, Qdups remix of King of the Road has that future go-go swing on a deep glitch-hop groove. One of the most popular remixes has been Budapests Lack Jemmon heavy-hitting glitch-hop reworking of Queen of Sheba featuring Edy Blu, an absolute beast with killer breakdowns and effects.
Close friends and collaborators, Empresarios have given Musical Mur- der their Tropicaliente treatment, and the result is a smooth and sexy tune that flexes through downtempo, dub, cumbia and reggae in one track! Thunderball have dusted off their drumnbass kit to create a rolling Never Give Up remix for the junglist massive. Fellow DC party rockers, Sol Power All-Stars remixed The Chase, dishing up a sizzling afrobeat flavored house track. Victoria, BCs own Palletz remixed Rudeboy Razor, adding elements of electro, trap, and moombahton which is perfect with Flex Mathews relentless vocals.
Top UK based Ghetto Funk producer Sammy Senior reinterpreted Real Steel, turning it into a bubbling dancehall tune with some heavy bass. One of the exclusive remixes new to this release is DC based Astronaut Jones moody remix of Rebel in Blue, which ranges from bass heavy downtempo to blissful atmospherics. Coming from Fort Knox Recordings Australian outpost, Omegaman crafted an instant downtempo classic with his remix of Revolution, the spacey guitars, echo and reverb create the perfect bed for Candice Mills vocals. Portland, Oregons own AfroQBen provides a deep dub rework of The Chase, taking it into late-morning chill out territory. Closing out the release is another compilation exclusive from Prague based drumnbass producer MikkiM, who revs up the beats turning Real Steel into a rudeboy stepper.
