A Tribute Mix for John Horvath of Fort Knox Five – R.I.P.


Since their very first release in 2003 I’ve been a huge fan of Fort Knox Five. „The Big Score“ just blew me away with it’s deep funkyness. It’s such a driving peace of music even without heaving a hard hitting beat. From that moment I was pretty much addicted to FK5 and their label and that never changed until now. A few years later Blogrebellen and the Fort Knox Posse became something like online friends. We postet a lot of their music, sometimes even exclusive. Once FK5 even gave me the possibility to make a dream come true. They gave me the opportunity to mix the seventh edition of their famous „Funk the World“-mix series.

Yesterday I heard that John Horvath just had passed away and I’been very sad since then because his music was such a big delight for me in the past years. So I did the only thing I could do to cope with my feelings and started immediately with the work on a tribute mix. I just had to do it. And here it is.

I never got to know you personally John, but I feel the funk that you brought to the world. I’m pretty shure that you already took over the decks in heaven and everybody upon there is already dancing their ass off to your warm funk!

As I’m not shure about Soundcloud letting the mix online for long, here’s an alternative:
