“Give It A Minute” to Get Down with Fort Knox Five and Bcap

Fresh on the heels of their floor stomping Funk The World 40 mix, Fort Knox Five are back with a fresh and funky release featuring their friend bcap! Give It a Minute is a summer tune that will prepare you for hot summer nights dancing under the stars. Already receiving rave reviews (as you’ll see below), this tune is the perfect jam for a festival DJs arsenal. Currently at #7 on the Beatport Glitch-Hop chart, while receiving vast radio and DJ support, this tune is definitely gonna be a hitting the festival sets soon.

From the very beginning of the tune you know it’s about to be a funky one. With the warped bassline introducing the track, before the tight vocals from bcap come over to bring the track together, it’s a tune that’s good for any time of day. From a packed daytime set to a peak hour banger, right through to a sunrise jam, it’s a versatile and well-developed tune, which is a standard we’ve come to expect Fort Knox Five.

Stay tuned for more from Fort Knox Five and the rest of the crew as the summer develops. This going to be an action packed festival season, and we are just getting started with the releases! If you like funk (and we know you do) make sure to watch the space!
