If you’ve ever read our mission statement, you know Prime Fortune strives to move culture forward. Although we began viewing Chicago as our playground, it’s safe to say PFC has expanded its influence well beyond our city limits. To keep moving forward, I thought it would be a good idea to create a section where artists can share their intent directly to listeners, since a lot of personality gets lost in translation/creation. Kicking off this new venture to be more expressive and all inclusive, we’re launching our new section “The Vault” featuring an interview from Cardiknox.
Cardiknox is dance pop duo made up of Lonnie and Thomas. They’ve been signed to Warner Bros. Records for a little while now and just finished the Gimmie Love tour with Carly Rae Jepsen (the chick who sings “Call Me Maybe”). The group is super dope, and it’s very refreshing to hear pop music with REAL lyrics; too much Taylor Swift these days. If you haven’t heard them before check out some footage from their Chicago show, but also take a listen to this interview. They’ll make you fall in love.
