“Shift” With Fort Knox Five

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

Free MP3 “Shift” (Baymont Bross Remix): http://fk5.fortknoxmusic.com/

DC ARTISTS MAKE WAVES WORLDWIDE WITH GROUNDBREAKING MUSIC VIDEO

Fort Knox Five’s “Shift” Featuring Afrika Bambaataa

On July 13th, Washington DC-based group Fort Knox Five released a brand new music video “Shift,” featuring Afrika Bambaataa and Mustafa Akbar. The video has been featured on over 100 blogs and websites, including a Spinner Video Premiere and URB Magazine. The YouTube video has received 4,200 plays in less than a week.

“…the video is simply out of this world — almost literally.” – Spinner

The groundbreaking music video for “Shift” is the result of months of work by directors Stu MacKay-Smith and DJ Ball. Combining live action filmed in HD Oakley Red with sharp animation, the production team called in world famous action sports cinematographer Christian Begin to capture Vancouver’s Now or Never B-Boy crew, the Hybrid Movement Parkour crew, and go-go dancers Foxy Moron, Nessa V, and Jina Anika. Filmed on location in Vancouver, BC, New York, NY, and Washington DC, additional filming was done by Adam MacKay-Smith, Colin Mcgreal and Robin Bell. Graphic designer John Langdon created a special Fort Knox Five ambigram for the video.

Fort Knox Five teamed up with electro-funk innovator Afrika Bambaataa and vocalist Mustafa Akbar to create the song “Shift” during President Obama’s inaugural ceremonies last year. Originally released on Fort Knox Recordings’ 2009 compilation The New Gold Standard 2, “Shift” has been reinvented in both visual and audio form. On July 13th, 2010, the “Shift” music video and remixes were released on iTunes.

Fort Knox Five selected various like-minded musicians from around the globe to perform remix duties. The “Shift” remix single features blazing remixes from Deekline & Dustin Hulton, DJ Dan & Mike Balance, Malente, Sub Swara, and Baymont Bross.
