    •ABOUT THE ARTISTS• 

    Megan Hamilton 

    Megan Hamilton is a well-equipped rocket in the electronic orbit: her mix of hypnotic bass, funky riffs and house grooves push the envelope with each track. As both a producer & vocalist with hip hop roots, she’s able to spin toplines atop beats at the flip of a technicolored hat.

    Megan’s anything-goes approach to music lends her the ability to create a colorstorm of magic in her Minneapolis studio. Her creative direction is heavily influenced by Opiuo, EDX, and Poldoore, and established labels Lowtemp, Buygore, Ghetto Funk & Audiophile have supported the trailblazing artist and her forward-thinking releases.

    Megan has spread the good word of unapologetic and genre-defying music throughout North America, with performances at Lightning In a Bottle, Arise Festival, STS9’s Wavespell Festival, Canada’s Motion Notion Festival and many more. Her musical resumé is comprised of sharing stages with electronic heavyweights such as The Glitch Mob, Big Gigantic, Gramatik, CloZee and The Floozies. Similar to many of her peers today, Megan refuses to limit herself to one genre – so come without expectations. You’re guaranteed a party out of this world.

    Fort Knox Five

    Formed in Washington, D.C. as a project to explore all things funky, regardless of genre or tempo. From the beginning, the vibe was retro, the sound was funk, and the beats were fresh. 20 years into it and FK5 are still going strong!

    Combining live instrumentation with electronic music, Fort Knox Five create grooves that shift effortlessly from funk to house, reggae to glitch hop all the way through to prime time bangers helping to pioneer a modern funk revolution that have seen them touring and performing for nearly two decades alongside industry giants and icons.

    In recent years Steve Raskin has taken over as the principle DJ for the group and now leads the charge of the Fort Knox brigade on the road into the funky future. He tours their signature brand of glitched out funk with high energy sets in any setting from world famous clubs to some of the largest festivals across the globe, rocking the parties with infectious grooves that effortlessly move from funk, bass, and hip hop to prime time house and breaks.
