Thunderball - DJ Set
Steve Raskin, Rob Myers, and Sid Barcelona, are the masterminds behind Thunderball. This Washington, DC-based trio are globally renowned purveyors of sophisticated, stereophonic-thrillers, and cinematic dub. Since 1997 their productions have shifted effortlessly between the genres of drum’n’bass, dub and downtempo, building a strong following for their signature sound.
Raskin, the principle DJ/Producer in the group, has started touring again bringing their retro stereo-tonic sound back on the road in his eclectic DJ sets. His high energy performances incorporate their signature downtempo and drum'n'bass sound and expands it to include house and breaks, global beats and nu disco.
Last year saw Thunderball – the alter ego of Fort Knox Five come home to Fort Knox Recordings. While curating the re-release of their legendary catalog, the group uncovered a vault of previously-unavailable remixes dating from 1997 to 2007. Declassified: Remixes tracks the evolution of electronic music in Washington, DC as it was being blasted from the legendary Eighteenth Street Lounge and released on Thievery Corporation’s vaunted imprint: ESL Music.
