Fort Knox Five "What Make Ya Dance feat. Rootz (Kraak & Smaak's Dutch Oven Remix)"
- Words: Patric Fallon
To commemorate their recent tour together, Washington DC's Fort Knox Five and Dutch trio Kraak & Smaak have worked out a remix swap—each group taking a stab at one of the other's tracks. For Kraak & Smaak's reinterpretation, they tweaked and twisted "What Make Ya Dance feat. Rootz," a song that originally sounded something like a contemporary "Low Rider." Here, pilfering only a horn loop and Rootz's vocal track, the song is turned into a classic rave-up chock full of skronking basslines, punchy breakbeats, and sinister synth melodies.
