In his native Washington DC, Mustafa Akbar was a scene legend: the frontman for reggae band Nappy Riddem, he was also head of security at the famous Eighteenth Street Lounge and staged his own festival, Mustock, as well as recording several solo albums. Sadly, he passed away from a rare blood disease last year, aged just 61. Regular collaborators Fort Knox Five released the posthumous 'Attracted' EP by way of tribute back in March, and now here come the remixes. Funk-breaks is the dominant sound but with 15 mixes of just five tracks there's room, too, for D&B, hip-hop and heavy, headnodding dubtronica, making for a varied and enjoyable listen.
