Elite Force Press Kit
Elite Force was started back in 1996 as a cross-genre solo project for studio output not associated with Lunatic Calm. With releases on seminal labels such as Fused & Bruised, Concrete, Whole9Yards and Moonshine, Elite Force soon became known as a pioneer of the Tech-Funk movement, a blend of styles that included Techno, Electro and Breaks. Highly successful with headline sets all over the world from Kazakhstan to China, from Canada to New Zealand, and all points in between he is a multiple award-winner, including a Beatport Award in 2011 for top-selling Breaks artist and multiple Breakspoll Awards. The Revamped album series that began in 2010 revolutionized the art of the mash-up. Though limiting his performance dates to pursue new ventures, Elite Force remains a vibrant and active force playing Classics and RVMPD sets across the globe.
