Defunk
Hailing from Calgary, Canada, Defunk has taken funky bass music to a whole new level. Most popularly known for his attention of bringing elements of funk, jazz and blues into heavy bass music, he constantly strives to develop new sounds with new elements based around the idea of groove. Sexy sounds, funky rhythms, dirty drops, disco dancing, jazzy solos, and intriguing instruments can all be found in his catalogue. His intention is to constantly push the limit on what bass music is viewed as while still keeping the elements that make you want to dance.

Fort Knox Five 
The FORT KNOX FIVE is a leading force in the international funk and breaks scene. Having released an arsenal of floor rocking singles and remixes, the FORT KNOX FIVE has the midas touch for producing heavy hitting records.

Sid Barcelona, Jon Horvath, Rob Myers and Steve Raskin are the masterminds behind the FORT KNOX FIVE. They established Fort Knox Recordin...gs in 2003 to release party-rocking music that crosses tempos and defies genres. Their world renowned 'Fort Knox Sound' has overtaken dance-floors with its distinct interweaving of live instrumentation with funky electronic breakbeats. In 2006 they released the critically acclaimed 'The New Gold Standard' to showcase the groundbreaking sounds from their premier funk and soul label.

Skillz and Krafty Kuts, Kraak & Smaak, Ursula 1000, Dynamo Productions, and Mo' Horizons, as well as remixes for the legendary Tito Puente, Louis Armstrong, and Bob Marley. The FORT KNOX FIVE has coined the term 'Reminted' to represent their signature remixing style. They released the first 'Reminted' CD showcasing some of their favorite productions in a continuous DJ mix in 2007.

Further cementing the FORT KNOX FIVE's reputation, Afrika Bambaataa—the godfather of hip-hop—asked them to produce four tracks on his latest album Dark Matter Moving at the Speed of Light released on the legendary Tommy Boy Label.
