In Honor of Jon Horvath, Fort Knox Five founder - 20 Minutes of F.U.N.K.

Jon Horvath, founder or Fort Knox Recordings and funk band/production/DJ group Fort Knox Five passed away today. I had the honor of meeting Jon before a few Fort Knox Five sets in DC and NYC. He brought insane energy to Fort Knox Five sets and recordings, and you couldn't miss his electric hair fro, which became a visual signature for the duo. I didn't know Jon personally, but I want to thank him - Fort Knox Five showed me how to incorporate funk into my mixes, and made me appreciate the past, present and future funk and the joy it brings. FUNK is joy, and Fort Knox Five and Jon embodied that joy.

Thank you Jon - you FUNKED THE WORLD HARD. I'll always share your jams, they'll always be part of my sets. You'll be missed. In honor of Jon - here's one of my favorite Fort Knox Five mixes:
