Elite Force – Singles Collection – Part One (1996 – 2005)
For those of you who missed our blog post back at the beginning of November featuring a new Elite Force mix that was dropped to help shed light on his forthcoming ‘Singles Collection’ albums, it’s time to sit up and pay attention because part one is here!
The ‘Singles Collection’ albums are being released in two parts with 36 remastered tracks split between them both and they will take a retrospective look over three decades of Elite Force’s music. With all tracks being lovingly remastered, some of them have come straight from the vaults and some are tracks that have never entered the digital domain before and have only made it onto the albums because of a bag of old DAT tapes Simon found while he was having a sort through some of his stuff. Having purchased a DAT player and with some delicate handling of decaying material to work with, some of Elite Force’s earliest music can now be listened to and owned forever.
Part one of the ‘Singles Collection’ covers music from 1996 through to 2005 with an essential collection of quality Breakbeat and Tech Funk up for grabs. You can hear tracks such as ‘Mainframe Wrekka’ which was the first-ever Elite Force track to be released on vinyl on Simon’s ‘Fused & Bruised‘ label. There’s also ‘Gasoline Alley’ and ‘Curveball’ that were both released on Meat Katie‘s ‘Whole Nine Yards‘ label back in 2001 as well as ‘Melodic Hypnotic’ and one of my personal favourites by Elite Force ‘Shadowbox’ which were both released on Kingsize Records. With those tracks and so many other amazing classics to check out, part one closes with a Bandcamp exclusive and much sought-after tune ‘Sk8r’, which was one of those tracks needed lots of extra care to be brought back to life.
Part two of Elite Force’s ‘Singles Collection’ will be released on the 29th of November taking us from 2006 to 2019. While you wait for that and after you’ve fully taken in what part one has to offer, take a trip over to Simon’s brand new website on the link below. There you will find links to even more music plus info on his numerous aliases and all of his music for film, TV, adverts and computer games. There lots to take in so grab yourself a cuppa and then get yourself acquainted a genius of the music world.
