"The New Gold Standard 2" released Tuesday Nov 17th
« on: November 15, 2009, 12:41:56 pm »


This November 17th 2009, Fort Knox Recordings is proud to present
THE NEW GOLD STANDARD 2
http://www.fortknoxrecordings.com


With the likes of Major Lazer, and before them, M.I.A, showing complete disdain for musical boundaries, the time is upon us when the melodic melting pot is the genre. And, as much as London is often touted as a Western frontier for such musical multiculturalism, Washington DC and its continually evolving music scene has been providing the mish mash of cultural influences Stateside.

Fort Knox Recordings, the imprint lovingly tended by funk n beats outfit, the Fort Knox Five, is one of the leading forces in America?s fast rising modern global scene. DC based, they?re bringing together artists and sounds that draw in funk, latin, rock, reggaeton, soca, hip hop, electronica, dub, bhangra, bashment, roots, reggae, indie, jazz, and beyond. The band has also taken this mission to the airwaves, accelerating its appeal with their monthly guest spot on KEXP?s ?MoGlo? radio show broadcast out of New York city.

Showcased perfectly on ?The New Gold Standard 2?, the sequel to 2006 hit compilation, The New Gold Standard, modern global?s protagonists have been selected and compiled by FK5. This new release features freshly-minted sounds from the Fort Knox Five themselves (4 new tracks), International Velvet, Speedy Consuela, Liftoff, See-I, Empresarios, and Nappy Riddem. Further artists and guestspots include Afrika Bambaataa, Frank Mitchell (Thievery Corporation), Asheru (Unspoken Heard, The Boondocks) and many more. See below for the full tracklisting.

ABOUT FORT KNOX FIVE
Sounding like a cosmic by product of George Clinton, Sly & The Family Stone, and Public Enemy, the Fort Knox Five are a live force to be reckoned with, and as in-demand remixers and producers, they?ve worked with artists ranging from Afrika Bambaataa to Bittersweet, Kraak & Smaak to Tito Puente and Bob Marley & the Wailers (sanctioned by the Marley estate, a rare honour). The Fort Knox Five are internationally renowned DJs and were selected by Gwen Stefani for her ?Harajuku Lovers? tour with Black Eyed Peas. In the UK, their sets at London?s Fabric have seen them win punter approval, matching the media praise shown by the music press, The Guardian, Metro, and beyond.
