The Fort Knox Five have had a huge impact on the international funk and breaks scene over the past couple of years. With the release of five critically acclaimed singles on their own independent label, Fort Knox Recordings, the FK5 have been thrust into the spotlight and caught the attention of music lovers around the world. FK5 flawlessly fuse live instrumentation with modern electronics to create their signature funk-driven sound. Their highly sought-after production style has been called upon to remix incredible artists and have been asked by Afrika Bambaataa to produce four tracks on his recent album "Dark Matter" on Tommy Boy Records. FK5's unique DJ style ranges from eclectic downbeat & hip hop, to upbeat funk and breaks. Their keen sense of party rocking has gained them countless fans around the globe. They have rocked dancefloors in Russia, Germany, Hungary, Holland, Switzerland, Australia, Thailand, and Canada to name a few.

2005 was a pinnacle year for the Fort Knox Five. Having just been selected into the prestigious Urb Magazine Next 100, and featured on the Hotel Costes Sept Compilation. A major turning point in 2005 was when they were selected to be Gwen Stefani's International tour. Being a part of this, they had the opportunity to open sellout shows with Gwen Stefani, and the Black Eyed Peas. They performed at massive arenas, such as the Hollywood Bowl, Madison Square Gardens, and everywhere else in between. Next up for the Fort Knox Five in early 2006, keep an eye out for the release of their debut CD New Gold Standard Vol 1. They are also releasing a mix cd of their remixes entitled "Fort Knox Reminted". FK5 will also be working closely next year with Krafty Kuts, Afrika Bambaataa, and Wicked Lester. Keep an eye out for their first full length album out Fall 2006.

Digging beneath the surface of a multifaceted mix of genres, King Sunshine delivers what people have been longing for; music with substance, music that recognizes it's disco roots, music that pushes the boundaries in an attempt to reinvent house music and take it to a new exciting level. Extended percussion breaks and samples from artists like Detroit's Theo Parish, Larry Levan, Roy Ayers and Glenn Underground, can be heard throughout their sets. Their groove and mixes emulate yet recreate the way dance music Djs spin. King Sunshine has created a style that has been widely appreciated by many in the music industry, landing them on stage with some of house music's finest, including Theo Parrish, Mark Farina, Derrick Carter, Ron Trent, Dj

Sneak, Jason Palma and New Jerseys soul man Kenny Bobien. There’s a lot of history in King Sunshine. The band started to evolve at a time when house music and Djs were coming up from the underground and planting their roots outside of the club scene. House heads out of Chicago were releasing "The History of House Music", while King Sunshine was preparing to make history

eight hours away in Toronto. They began opening ears and eyes as one of the most explosive bands to take house music off of vinyl and bring it to the stage live. Many musicians have gravitated towards the disco and funk rhythms of King Sunshine. In six years of development, nine soul shakers have solidified a powerful force that hypnotizes audiences, draws them to the dance floors and uplifts them to a higher state of consciousness. Sweet keys, heart pounding drums, heavy bass, smooth guitar, intense electronics,

percussion, tight horns and soulful vocals make up King Sunshine. Their concerts have been described as "powerful, unforgettable, rhythmic

experience"

BIG LEAGUE CHU

Colin Chu, better known as Big League Chu, is simply the leading DJ talent in Canada's breakbeat scene today. After nearly a decade of DJing, his name is synonymous with the funky, party-happy sound that?s become Chu's rallying

call - and it's one that crowds answer faithfully.

Passion for music and fun are what motivates Chu, who plays the piano, flute and guitar, and counts the Dave Matthews Band and Public Enemy as his

biggest musical influences. It’s this good-natured respect for good times and eclectic sounds that has garnered this humble DJ of Hong Kong and Singaporean descent to such a steady stream of press, from underground publications like Tribe and Klublife to mainstream outlets like the Toronto Star and Eye weekly. His current projects include Make It Funky and his new weekly residency at Kabin.
