As a DJ, when you can check Afrika Bambaataa off your bucket list of people to work with, your legitimacy is in pretty good shape. For Washington funky breaks collective Fort Knox Five, it was a case of opportunity meeting preparation, as it had established itself as a group of consistently talented producers before one of the progenitors of global hip-hop and beat culture came calling. Bambaataa, known for "Planet Rock," the '80s hit that crossed hip-hop and German electro pioneers Kraftwerk, will be mining his breakbeats with the Fort Knox crew at an MLK holiday blowout at U Street Music Hall featuring Asheru and Mustafa Akbar on mike control and the Video Killers handling visuals. Local DJs Rex Riddem and Jahsonic are also in the mix.
