Back in 2004 when Fort Knox Five’s fifth release and signature cut The Brazilian Hipster first came out, the vinyl 12″ was still king of DJ formats, digital was a dirty word and the 45 was little more than the province of die-hard spinners of old wax. Fast forward to now and the 12″ is a rarity, digital’s huge (but still a dirty word in some parts) while there’s nothing hipper than a vinyl 7″. What
better format to mark a re-release of this saucy bit of bossa breaks then than a 45 of the louche original mix with Skeewiff’s tasty car-chase style remix on the – er – flip. Exactly.
