The story of Fort Knox Five and Stickybuds goes back over a decade, funk is the glue that binds these brothers together, and they have rocked the same great festivals and shows across the US and Canada. All of that funky party rockin' has culminated with Stickybuds' first official remix of Fort Knox Five, his reinterpretation of Give It A Minute featuring bcap. No doubt you have heard Stickybuds teasing the crowd with some exclusive Fort Knox Five acapellas and drops over the years in his legendary sets, but this opens a whole new chapter with his bombastic remix.
Stickybuds cuts right to the chase, as his mix opens up immediately to bcap's narrative verse and the relentless percussive synths that propel it over the hard hitting beats. Synth pop sensibilities of groups like Oliver and Chromeo can be heard dripping over Stickybuds unique glitch-hop style production. With epic big builds and organic drum fills, the remix rides the line between electro and classic funk.
From the start the remix gets you hooked on the dancefloor, delivering bcap's catchy chorus over booty shaking beats. And then the big break down devastates with its cut-up and asymmetrical glitched-out vocals layered on top of the electro-synths. Featuring a healthy dose of Rob Myers' guitar/synth lines and heavily utilizing the original vocals, the remix maintains the vibe of FK5's original track. Stickybuds delivers the goods and flips the Future Funk, Go-Go meets Glitch-Hop of the original into an Electro meets Glitch-Hop dancefloor powerhouse.
Also included is the instrumental version, which slays on its own and highlights Stickybuds impeccable studio production. This killer remix of Give It A Minute is meant to be played loud and danced furiously to, and is the best way we could imagine finishing out the year, with an absolute banger.

Almost impossible to pick a favourite from this bunch, they're all so cool. For now, I'm singling out the Kinks one because it's such an original song choice but ask me tomorrow and it'll be a different one! themichaelmoran
