See-I released their 2014 album “Knowledge Shine Bright” to great reviews in the press and an amazing radio campaign, followed up with national tour dates including the 30th annual Reggae On The River Festival in Humboldt County, CA. The tracks from this album have been sent out to some of the best remixers around the world and the results are just stunning.
The Knowledge Shine Bright remixes will be released in a series of EPs and the first one is engineered to blow up dance floors all over the place. See-I’s track The Boogieman features rapper Mr. Lif, and the Basement Freaks have stripped it down and reworked the tune from the bottom up. The result is an electro infused bass funk banger, a slice of futuristic funky hip-hop, which is a DJs dream. Fort Knox Recordings label mate Qdup remixed King of the Road adding some future go-go swing to create a funky glitch-hop anthem. These are the first See-I remixes by both of these accomplished artists, and instrumentals of both remixes are also available.
The first installment of the Knowledge Shine Bright Remixes sets the bar very high, with Basement Freaks and Qdup reinterpreting the funky reggae and hip-hop of See-I into dance floor monsters. With a range of sounds from electro, glitch-hop, funk, bass and breaks these remixes deliver the goods and create an irresistible party vibe.

“Queen of Sheba” featuring Edy Blu
from Knowledge Shine Bright LP
Official Music Video
The Queen of Sheba was rumored to be one of the most beautiful and powerful women in ancient history when King Solomon married the Abyssinian ruler. Whether this legend is true or not does not matter anymore, as See-I has produced an amazing music video, which captures the essence of this mythic beauty. The track “Queen of Sheba”, released on Fort Knox Recordings, is from See-I’s 2014 album, Knowledge Shine Bright and features local chanteuse Edy Blu on vocals alongside with See-I’s front men Rootz and Zeebo Steele.
Directed by Bryan Eckerson, the music video was shot and produced on various locations throughout the Washington, DC area. Included in the video are scenes of See-I at the Eighteenth Street Lounge, where the band has performed each and every Wednesday night since early 2006. In fact, it was in the now defunct recording studio at the Eighteenth Street Lounge where Eric Hilton and Rob Garza first enlisted Rootz and Zeebo as vocalists when they created the world famous downtempo super groupThievery Corporation.
Edy Blu is no stranger to the See-I massive, having performed with the band as one of the opening singers for several years now, and also recorded the hit track “Queen of Sheba” earlier this year. Edy Blu brings natural style and grace to her vocals on the track and to this luscious music video, which blends nature, reggae and beauty together in an ethereal vibe. See-I has always been a family affair, and Zeebo’s son Salem Steele was the main production force behind this solid track. See-I guitarist Rob Myers (who also plays with Fort Knox Five and Thievery Corporation) design the title and credit graphics for the video. Always important to the See-I massive is the importance of fun and uplifting music, which elevates the listener to a higher level, and this track has an added level of cultural references, as Zeebo says, “It’s the Queen of Sheba from the storybooks…”
